Well last night was spent playing GTA: Vice City with Karen and Andy whilst periodically checking the level of the water on the cellar to see if it had gone down at all. Things were not looking good by the time I crawled into bed. I was beginning to worry the drain/soak was too far below the water table to work. Luckily when I checked this morning pretty much all the water had gone as if by magic. I'm still
having problems getting the washing machine to drain properly but its not a major issue right now. I've got a load of old damp notes that I was keeping for no particular reason which I can now throw away without guilt. Tonight I shall go to Sin City considerably happier that major damage has been averted.
