*history*- We bought an OLD house and got a building contractor to renovate- I chose new taps (the single lift and twist ones) that would need a NEW high pressure geyser- LIke DUH?- Ok I like a good shower too you know- so please go ahead!- UHUM- and so the story gets messy- we had leaking pipes in our Linen closet!!! - the toilet wouldn't flush etc- so the builder FIRES his plumber contractor ( but not BEFORE he had installed the NEW geyser-) UHUM- New??- well that's another bone of contention today- seems its 2 years OLDER than I was let believe!! ( not like I climb in the roof to check you know- it looked shiny- ROTFLMAO)- so after the FIRST mess- I phone the builder who sends ANOTHER plumber- who say's he fixed it- ( stuck valve!!!)- LIKE HELL JA!
Last night Wayne had just got home and we had some slight rain in the evening and we were chatting in the kitchen when it sounded like HEAVY RAIN- Hello- we both look outside and UM_ the sun is shining- BOTH AT THE SAME TIME- shout OH SHIT and run like looneys to the bathroom area just in time to hear the EXPLOSION!! NO LIES!! LOL, Wayne doesn't even look he just carry's on running ( quickest I've seen him charge in YEARS!LOL) to find the MAIN tap outside to turn the water off-
I'm looking STUCK to the floor in the passage staring at this HUGE HOLE in my spare room ceiling! Water is SHOOTING out in a SHEET!!! And it's boiling HOT- the whole room is steaming up- so NO WAY'S IN HELL- am I running in there to save all the stuff in the way! LOL- Wayne gets the water off but the thing still takes a while to eventually get to a trickle!! MESS PEOPLE!!! BED, BOOKS,CHRISTMAS PRESENTS on the BED!!! ARRRGGGHH- actually just about everything in there is WET and COOKED! LOL
We do the general *drag outside* and push everything around out of the way-LOL. But Um now we have NO WATER and it's now 7pm- Cut a longer story- we eventaully figure out how to get water to the kitchen but no bathrooms! HAHAHAHAHAHA- so of course I'm teasing Wayne now about flushing the loo in the morning after his morning *sh-t*! WAHAHAHA- He had a BATH in the SWIMMING POOL this morning at 5.30am! With shampoo and soap mind you-LOL. And trust me we have an elevated garden- so the neighbours if they were awake would have had a WONDERFUL VIEW! ROTFLMAO- I wasn't so brave and have just *washed* in the kitchen sink!! hahahahaha- Feel gritty and sticky and couldn't wash my hair- which I DO EVERY DAY!! And there was a BUCKET placed next to the loo- compliments of my hubby too- WAHAHAHAHAHA-
The bank sent out THEIR plumber now to look at the damage ( house insuarance) and let me know that we were lucky to still have a ROOF! He said the geyser did NOT have a pressure valve ( UHUM!!!) and that it was under tooo mutch pressure- hence the spewing of it's contents- and because it just got hotter and hotter- it would have EXPLODED! Hell- thank Goodness Wayne turned the "main geyser switch and the water off"!!!!
So they will be fixing it today PROPERLY!! LOL-
* moral of the story*- the cheaper contractor is definetly NOT the cheapest in the LONG run!!
Hee hee- did you get this far- LOL, But I had to share as really cleaning your teeth and face then bathing in the pool is just tooo FUNNY! LOL!
Ok- Have you looked at my Designer bag yet???_ I cant' thank you all enough for your wonderful comments on the contents! Remember it's for both Commercial and Personal use. This LO was done by Croppy using some of the stuff in my bag! Don't kick ya self- it's 77% off the total value!
And I used some in this SECOND LO from our weekend away trip- LOL- ( thanks to Newlife dreams for the commercial use frame freebie)
