...... an odd mix of title I hear you say, but this week on Thursday I got home from work to find a river meandering through the hallway and a card from the postman floating to tell me he'd called but I wasn't at home. Yes, we had bourne the brunt of some of the heaviest rain I had ever seen in my life. At the front of the house, the water reached to just below the window and everytime a car forced it's way through more water was forced into the house.
Believe it or not it was the evening of my daughter's prom - she was stuck in Hexham having had her hair done. Her dad did an amazing job and drove her through a river to get her home by 6.45 to don her dress, kagoul and approriate footwear and got her to the prom -a little late but she got there and she looked totally gorgous and had the time of her life. A BIG THANKYOU to all the teachers who made it there through that awful weather to give the students a night to remember.
The most surreal part of the evening came when we sat down to eat around 9.30 to find that Wimbledon was playing and Nadal was getting beat. If that wasn't enough of a distraction and we hadn't had enough tension for one evening we now found ourselves dealing with a dog which we discovered, has been living on and lying in cat nip for two weeks, who decided to track the ball and do the funniest things while trying to watch the tennis whilst lying on it's back !!!
By that time most of the water had drained away and we were left with a clean up job.....
Anyway ..... if your interested there is a Design Team Call on the SplodgeAway Blog - use the link at the side to get there.
