This week’s Wednesday Wish has to be for a nice clean house - free from flood water, mud and mess!
We’re still recovering from the devastating floods which affected the Calder Valley in West Yorkshire.
We can’t wait to get on with straightening things out, but we’re currently in that awful limbo where insurers & loss adjusters question, examine, poke & probe. It feels like not much is going on. Builders are awaiting approval to start remedial works which is frustrating. There’s no washing machine, cooker or comfy sofa. And of course, with everything piled up in the bedrooms, we can’t find a thing!!
But we have to try & stay positive.
We actually managed to save so much stuff - anything that time or size allowed - lots of books, records, textiles, small pieces of furniture, items of sentimental value - and of course our beloved Fudge!
Hopefully kitchen units and appliances will be replaced by the insurers without to much argument.
The flooring might be a big job - and as for the garden, well - we won’t be winning a Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal this year.
But things will get sorted out over time. We’ll post a few updates in the coming months, but we promise not to go on about it too much!! Hopefully, we’ll have some interesting before & after shots to share. We might even ask for some second opinions about potential replacement items.
We have to say thanks for all your kind words and well wishes over the past few days. We’ve experienced many examples of the best side of human nature recently.
