I wasn't allowed to take her home! But she was sooo sweet!
Last week was filled with posts and then this week: nothing! I went back to work, which isn't the most exciting thing in the world, since I do mostly the same runs every day. I had a headache every day, but only on the right side of my head. It's finally gone now (for how long is another question though). The week started off great weather wise though. Calm and nice. Yesterday it started raining, but nothing much really. I thought. Today it rained again. A lot. Basements were flooded in the center of Haugesund and some of the roads looked like swimming pools. 

Since I had worked all week, I decided to take it easy this weekend. Do the dishes, do some laundry, watch some paralympics, do some blogging. So, as soon as I got home and changed, I bunged the laundry in the machine and got it going. I got a glass for some orange juice, turned on the television and sat down to watch the paralympics opening. When it was nearly finished I wanted a sandwich and as I stepped into the kitchen, I got a wet foot. A wet foot! And when I looked into the bathroom (which is located next to the kitchen), I realised I was lucky. Because the bathroom floor was covered in an inch of water!!

I had seen some water coming from underneath the shower cubicle a few times already, but I had figured I had spilled some water through the curtain while hosing the cubicle after a shower. Well, apparently not! Because all the water that the washing machine expelled, came from underneath the cubicle and the floor got flooded. 

I certainly didn't think I would spend my Friday night filling bucket after bucket after bucket and then emptying them outside! Then again, at least it got all the dust out from underneath the washing machine...


  1. On no, that was not fun at all!!!! So sorry for your troubles.

  2. Bummer on the water backup. But it is good to see your blog with new posts.

  3. Flooding is not a fun mess to clean up. My parents basement did that a few times (the washer/drier used to be there). Ah well, I'm glad you were able to put a positive spin on this.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
