Home again

Posted Mar 07, 2004 in Family.

We now have 1 working toilet and a partially-functioning shower, so I'm back at home. I have spent the last two weeks staying in various hotels and motels, with my wife at my mother-in-law's and the kids at their father's. Although the house is still barely habitable, it beats being in a hotel any day.

Our insurance company is dragging its feet, so we have been forced to halt the plumbers working on the areas that were covered. Hopefully, they will be able to get back to work on Wednesday.

Being back at home should mean that I'll be able to go back to posting more often. Than you for your patience.

    Blimey Simon! Sorry to hear about your plumbing disaster...happy to hear you've nearly got it sorted...sort of. Parents of the world, take note! Forget Hollywood and Pop Idol...If you want your kids to make it in the world, convince them to take up plumbing. There aren't nearly enough plumbers on the planet and those that are out there make a very wealthy living from our ignorance of pipes, overflows and directional valve intake adjustors (see, I made that last one up and you didn't even notice). So tell your children to plumb on! That way they'll earn a healthy living and you'll never have to fork out for another plumber again...

    Hmm. Your jokes are plumbing new depths, Mark.
