      PS… did you hear the rain starting at about 4:30? christ! :laugh_at:

      managed to wake me up, and i was completely inebriated!

      only noticed it last night though but looking at the radar the Benelux countries got a particularly harsh time of it this morning (the met office gadget thing doesn’t let me scroll back to 0430) so it may have affected the coastal areas worse than 20 miles inland.

      I can still connect to my office PC so at least EDF kept the power on last night raaa (otherwise I would be riding 7 miles to work to turn the phone system back on and having drunk the last bottle of Old Thumper and started on the Abbot ale this isn’t particularly advisable!)

              TBH my mates are still around but everyones having to reassess their lives at the moment for various reasons..

              At least there isn’t a beer shortage! there was one in my area a week ago, the Co-op wholly run out of Adnams – even worse considering where I live!

              I had to drink Co-op Best Bitter for a week – it wasn’t as bad as I feared but I really did feel like I had turned into Grandad. Worse still, even both my grandads on the Indian and Chinese sides of the family would have had better beer to drink in 1950s Malaya!, usually Tiger beer. (draught beer is much less common in SE Asia, the heat and notoriously unreliable electricity supply in everywhere apart from Singapore means that it will be very expensive to keep a decent cellar at correct temperature…)

              I have a Tiger Beer t-shirt from my travels somewhere, not too bad as I recall. Better than the local “rum” at any rate. Never had co-op best biter, but this is worse, I just bought Budweiser as it was the only thing I could afford much of :(. Not had it since I was a kid, but I still remember how tasteless it was.

                      fucks sake!

                      the cowboy of a builder what owned my house before me has plumbed in the bath in such a way that leading from the waste outlet there is a 90 degree bend then pipe with a diagonal run to the soil stack and the Anglian Water drain. this second pipe has a large gap between it and the downstairs ceiling and is completely unsupported…

                      this afternoon the compression joint on the 90 deg bend worked loose due to the weight of water going down it :yakk: -and so the bath waste has been discharging into the void above the downstairs ceiling :cry:, eventually exiting via the hole for the 3 lamp electrolier in the dining room :yakk: thankfully I caught this before there was too much of a flood but there is water in the run to the electric lighting circuit (it was starting to buzz alarmingly!)

                      now I am sat in near darkness apart from the table lamp in my room as there is only one lighting circuit for my entire house and I daren’t turn the lights back on until everything is dried out.. tomorrow I will have to work out a way of supporting that pipe so this doesn’t happen again..

                              thankfully I found the wind up LED torch and the LED emergency lights I purchased in winter raaa and I’ve got a builders worklight I keep for these sorts of incidents..

                              The leaks dealt with (just had to tighten up the compression joint), wil need to work out how to support that pipe tomorrow. its more the hassle of waiting for everything to dry out, and I’d already had a busy day working on my bike…
