I can still see where it was hacked when I polish it, thirty or so years on!  Glad it is all sorted.

Oh, Leslie K I had a pretty pair of gardening gloves like that in one of my birthday parcels.  And some flower seeds arrived in one of my cards in the post too - a proper gardener's birthday cake!  Love the picket fence.  TY so much and you too David K.

Aah I remember my feelings as the plumber was taking a pickaxe to my beautiful silk oak flooring in the hall to get to the leak!  At least it was not going on outside in the dark!

I had two pipes leading to two of the washhand basins come apart under the floor boards and we did not know it till the water came up in the bathroom through the floorboards.  We were living on a raft!  Took years to get it all sorted.  Hope you get it all done quickly Pat.

TY you, all you lovely people.  I am enjoying my birthday immensely sitting here reading all your lovely messages waiting for the hot water for my bath though it is warm enough today to have a cool one.  Perhaps not at 87.  Keep having to remind myself of that!
