Re the young lad who had just brought his first house.

Fortunately, unless he has spun a dodgy deal or was unable to get flood cover (unlikely since I don't think it was a well known flood area), mortgage companies wont hand over the cash until you've got what they consider adequate insurance in place. Something we've just been through as we had to send the policy paperwork over to our solicitor before they could complete the sale.

I just hope that in order to save some cash he didn't then cancel it once he got the keys.

I wish there was something we could do PD aside from offer you many many plants to fill your garden once it dries out should a few not appreciate the drowning. Please keep safe and I hope the water doesn't breach your house.

KEF - My pond was frozen over again this morning and I'm only 25 miles (ish) from you. I can't believe the difference in temperature! Perhaps we are a little more exposed (no rude jokes please!!)

Hope you're having a safe afternoon.

Sorry if I haven't replied to you. You're all lovely. But the forum doth not like me right now.

Will try to confirm the ID of my plant tonight. It was too dark and wet last night to go out and check it carefully.

One hopes, with the North not having it so bad that the majority of wildlife (birds at least) have been able to relocate slightly to continue their recovery.
