Good luck for the storm everyone

Posted: 17/10/2017 at 09:15

I hope the storm is passing and no one here has had any more damage. I have friends in County Sligo, I hope their house is OK, they are here in Dordogne on holiday at the moment.

Hello Forkers.....It's October!

Morning all.

I hope no one here has suffered from the storms. We had one here in December 1999, really scary, oak tree fell on the spare bedroom roof, without water and electricity for about 10 days, no phone either for a bit.

Oil man didn't listen to my instructions about finding the house. I told him the Sat Nav is wrong but he followed it anyway and went down a country lane that is closed for re-surfacing. I went out to look for him and the road workmen aren't pleased - oil lorry has left huge tyre marks in their new tarmac. They've locked him in a bridleway with a lorry in front of him until they've finished. I clearly told him on the phone not to take that road and there is a big sign saying road closed.

Oh dear, Joyce, I hope there isn't too much damage.

We have friends who live on the West coast of Ireland, they are visiting Dordogne at the moment. I hope their house is safe.

Morning all.

So sorry you've been ill punkdoc. Such a shame, Sicily is lovely.

I hope all in the West are OK.

I hope Raisingirl's dog manages to cope OK after his operation.

I've just sent another email with photos of damaged carpets and furniture from the flood to the Insurance. I just don't know what to do next or who to contact and what the Insurance will pay for. I have had no help from them and nothing in writing.

We got back from San Sebastian, north Spain, last night. Had a lovely break. Have read back, saw Fairy said I get about. San Sebastian is 4 hours drive south of here so not too bad. The building is the town hall, think it used to be a casino. Lovely food, tapas called pintxos. Great weather.

I hope Fairy is having a good birthday. There are a few cards on the birthday thread.

Weather here was good so rooms damaged by are flood are starting to dry out.

Glad Hosta enjoyed Saint Ives.

Happy Anniversary tomorrow to Mr & Mrs Chicky.

Good to see DD popping in.

Hello all. We are in San Sebastián, Spanish Basque Country Having a short break. Weather is warm and sunny, pretty beaches. Place is bustling. Went on a boat trip then had lunch in a little fish restaurant by the harbour. Prawns, sardines and salad. OH bought me a lovely jumper with embroidered sleeves. Booked it some time ago before we knew  pipe would burst and make a flood. As insurance won't do anything before it dries out we thought we'd go anyway.

Morning all. Sunshine and blue sky here. 34° is too hot.

Really enjoyed Coast last night about East Anglia. We need to explore more of it when we next go.
