33mm of rain in ..a matter of hours. On top of about 15mm yesterday.
Back garden submergible pump evidently blocked, given the river of water pouring like an ambitious creek from the back garden to the front garden...via the kitchen. Luckily I had moved the Dyson earlier or it would have floated out of the door
Put off any attempt to hoik out pump and unblock cos am holding a screaming child and husband gets off the phone to the pediatrician saying "we have to take him to hospital now, she thinks it's appendicitis"
Turns out it is Papa's fault for buying him chips from the kebab shop. Evidently not hygene freaks there, very nasty tummy upset not appendicitis, he is now fast asleep and a colour approaching just pale rather than grey.
The second he dropped off I waded through the kitchen to the back and managed to get large clump of what looks like a T-shirt that managed to fall down the well (Sock Dropper, famed for leaving clothes lying around, chief suspect) out of the sucky end of back garden pump.
Sweeping water out of the house when not on mini break involving internet based whinge about having a really bad day.
So let's see
Whiskers got stuck up a tree involving late night dramatic rescue.
House flooded with child looking close to death.
That's three right ?
Not that I'm superstitious or anything.
And left tit
Just in case fate is Italian.
