Happy Valentine's Day everyone. We don't do anything special on Valentine's Day, it's another day that has become very commercialised. I remember years ago it was a day of mystery, you would maybe receive a card or some flowers and a mystery note and you would try and guess who it was from. It was so much fun trying to work out who your secret admirer was. That doesn't happen so much these days.
Well we have gone from the sublime to the ridiculous weather wise. In the last 24 hours we have had so much rain.....over 75mm or 3 inches, and it has been the wettest February day since 1969.
With the ground being so hard the water didn't soak in, it just ran off and so hundreds of people had flooding in their homes. Also with the strong winds we'd been having, leaves, twigs and branches had blown off the trees and many of the storm water drains got blocked.
We have a skylight in the area and the dome of the light was cracked which was letting the water in. He siliconed it up and the leaking has stopped. We will have to look at getting a new skylight though.
The kitchen is progressing very nicely. It looks as if it will be finished sometime today but I am not looking forward to the cleanup. There is so much dust everywhere it looks as if we will be doing a very early spring clean. We can hardly see out of the kitchen window due to all the dust.
All of my beautiful clean kitchen cupboards will have to be emptied and everything washed again. Any offers of help will be accepted......lol. The kitchen is looking good and we are happy with it.
