    Fantastic albeit scary cake PD

    It my dds birthday coming up and she wanted a cake with a unicorn on and I wasn't confident I would be able to do it as although I can make cakes I'm not artistic or creative and I thought well it won't cost too much... Well an 8 inch cake with marble icing and a fondant unicorn on top...anyone want to guess how much

    Around the corner are serial smoke damage people and they have been in a hotel since last September, yesterday there were workmen painting the outside, seems the fire people scratched it,lol.
    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

    Sounds like your son is a good boy. I was thinking this about my DD today when she spread out all her shopping from Aldi to show my and her Dad how much money she saved.
    Just came back from the restuarant in the hotel OH came in to have t with me. Very tired going to sleep now. Night all

    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
