....AND THE CAT SLEPT THROUGH IT:

..... AND THE CAT SLEPT THROUGH IT:
 
Yesterday started out quite normal,
Whatever normal may be.
Tennessee fell alseep here,
As you can plainly see.
 
Then things changed ,
With a knock on my door.
It was the man downstairs,
On the first floor.
 
He asked if I had a leak anywhere,
I invited him inside.
He had a look around my apartment,
My curiosity I couldn't hide.
 
It appears there was water
Running down the wall.
Just inside the front door of the house,
To be seen by one and all.
 
Water was also near ,
The inside electric light.
I didn't like the look of that,
Such an awful sight.
 
I then went back upstairs,
On opening my cupboard under the sink,
Found it full of water,
I didn't know what to think.
 
I told the man downstairs,
Who promptly came back.
Phoned the landlord.
To help us back on track.
 
Tennessee slep through it all,
It appears I have a leak.
In my kitchen tank under the sink.
Lost for words I could hardly speak.
 
Today the plumber will be out.
I have to remain indoors.
Missing the sunny weather.
And a trip to the nearby shore.
 
HAPPY WEEKEND TO ALL:

    1. I'm not holding my breath Andrew, to get repairs done here it's usually very long winded.
      I can't go out not until someone appears. Still things could be worse.

    4. I do feel pleased you are able to get away. I do miss my caravanning days but could only keep going for a year or so after my husband passed away, having to take my cat and involving three trains to get there I found it hard.

  2. Leaks sure are no fun. And a big pain in the butt. Sleeping through it all is a win, for him anyway haha

  6. Tennessee is adorable. Cats are amazing. They can sleep through most anything. I hope your leak is fixed and doesn't leak again. Glad your neighbor was alert and caught it. Sure is messy. Here's to a quieter rest of the weekend.

    1. I don't think it will be quietr Beverly you see The plumber didn't come out yesterday. My neighbour has gone away for the duration of the weekend and I am ignorant about leaks and what can happen.
