    Does it say anything in your terms & conditions/ contract with supplier?

    We've woken up to no water this morning :confused: *sigh* ... the only way to get a shower is to stand in the garden, it's bucketing down out there!

    Oh dear Curry_Queen. :( Have you any idea how long it will be off for yet? It's really hard when you don't know about it...

    No idea how long it will be off for, but we've managed rather well - I was more concerned about getting the boys clean, lunchboxes and breakfast ready for school!

    My Mother always taught me to keep the kettle full (from her war years experience), so at least we had a cuppa this morning! The dregs from the pipes were enough to fill the washup bowl to flush the morning loo rush :o Kettle water provided a beaker for teeth washing.

    Boys have taken fizzy bottled water in their lunchboxes, dh worked all night so he's blissfully unaware! And ... I get to spend more time on here on the basis that I can't: do laundry, Spring Clean, bake or bathe ;)

    Well I've only had one coffee... I'd better wake up a bit more before posting again!! :rolleyes:

    I hope it's not off for too long. My kettle would be empty because I've got in the habit of only having enough in for one cup as no-one else has coffee at the same time. I wouldn't have any water spare so I suppose it would be down to collecting rainwater.
