    Thanks and yes it will be shiny and new when its all sorted. Any idea how long they usually take to get it sorted? As in decorating and carpet replacement.

    On a brighter note my number two son works for a company that goes in after the dehumidifier and makes good.
    He says it usually covers just about everything and he even puts up pictures and cleans the windows although he is a trained plasterer and tiler/kitchen fitter....good boy that he is xx

    oops went off tracke there, he is out in two to three days for a couple of rooms, its the paperwork that takes the time xx

    Well I had a busy week flying to Geneva to collect my sis to come home to Mums to recuperate with her broken leg. She was in hospital 2 weeks and a private clinic for 3 more which was costing her insurers nearly £900.00 per day. Anyway got back late Thursday night and went to work yesterday for 1/2 day.
    Went to my DD's for the afternoon and evening. Oh brought me home at 9.30pm as I had left my keys behind earlier. He opened the door for me and we were greeted by water cascading through the hall , bathroom and kitchen lights. I went to switch on a light and got a shock.
    OH drained down the tank , switched off the water and managed to switch off the electric with a stick. I was in bits and managed to call out the emergency cover chap. This was at 10p.m.and we decided to leave it till morning as he was going to take 3 hours to come.
    So went to DD'S for the night ( didnt sleep much!!)
    Repair chap came this morning and fixed the tank ( something to do with the ballcock.)
    The insurance said I could get a hotel as I cant have the power back on until its dried out and the assesor cant come till Monday.
    So I am in the brand new Premier Inn 5 minutes from home for 2 night initially.
    So any advice of how to deal with assesor gratefully received.
    My hall, lounge , landing and stair carpets are all soaking. My bedroom carpet is soaking too as is my memory foam mattress. There is water in my airing cupboard, bedroom cupboard and some on the edge of bedroom no 3. You can see water marks on the kitchen ceiling and the light in the shower exploded.
    At the moment I just have towels down to soak it up

    I imagine when power goes back on your insurers will send in some heavy duty dryers and an assessor.

    Mum has a smallish leak from under her kitchen floor. Assessors got builder to expose it and stop leak and put dryers in then came and looked. Instead of doing through builder they just put an amount on damage and wrote mum a cheque. Worse bit was it had damaged edge of her lovely oak lounge floor so that had to be replaced as well.

    I think best thing is to get a good night's sleep then when insurers get in touch you will have a clear head.

    We were in Chester very early and it was very quiet.
    In Thorntons we were only allowed to choose anything from the top 2 rows - a bit odd as when we got them earlier in the week we could choose any of the £3 bags.

    I think the last bus I used was the York park and ride one. I would quite like to have a bus pass but we are too far from the border so it will be about 10 years before I get issued with one Mind you I don't think we even have a bus now that does our route - I'd have to do about 15 mins walk to get to the nearest bus stop to go anywhere
    We walk from the station along the canal path now and come up by Tesco at the bottom of Frodsham Street. We didn't realise that Frodsham street is being relaid - not even sure now where the rail bus drops off

    Also something seems to have been built on Goosetack car park but not sure exactly what ...

    Gorsestacks is going to be a massive new bus terminal which is great but it has decreased the parking in Chester by a couple of hundred parking spaces.
    I think we are in the same situation where we now have to wait an extra 6.8 years to get a bus pass instead of getting it in June as planned and promised!

    Yes shopping was a bit of a battle , I was trying to show her that they could all eat the same ingredients and not have the same meals for example chicken kiev for the adults and chicken nuggets for the children and that using a base recipe you can make so many different meals, she was convinced she had to buy childrens food and adult food, no such thing in my book

    I am still trying to convince myself to give up smoking again, talking of battle of wills I have one with myself
