When I came back from Urchfont I discovered that the house and studio had nearly flooded again - within 1/2inch of coming through the door and floor. The studio is still damp - you can feel it through the floor.
Look at the damage the water has done again.....we now have a dam!
Getting the government agencies to take action (only they can action work on the river, not the land / river owners) is like, well, you can guess. I am phoning and asking for action as much as I can.
Wednesday I have a site visit from the Environment Agency and I can only try my best to put my point across. Wish me luck.
Can you see the fence across the water..... a chunk of field has disappeared again.
And my little baby isn't a baby anymore! This was his last day at First School, from September he'll be going to the Middle School for four years.
We celebrated his leaving with a meal out in Wooler - this was my pudding....... wonderful!
DS had some friends around on Saturday - his birthday is next week,
but its a good excuse for a cake and candles :)
Also this week I discovered that I have lost a huge chunk of my blog pics.... anything before April 2009 has disappeared! Seems the album has been deleted in Blogger. It coincides with the blog being moved to the new web site but I'm not sure if this is the cause. This is a HUGE loss to me - all those memories and photos of daily life. I have family pics backed up of course, but not the little snippets of everyday life.
Depressing. Very depressing. Hugely depressing. *sob*
And my energy levels have gone to minus readings....... I would give almost anything to be rid of the ME.
I'm fed up of being so tired and drained all the time.
Life is such an effort these days and I want it to be fun again.
Guess it will feel better again soon........
