Can We Fix It ???

Yes we can!!!

On a day that can at best be described as a turd of a day (all puns intended) we faced some particularly nasty obstacles. While others are fortunate to have their cups runneth over...the only cup in our life running over was the toilet. With Matthew still cutting hay, mummy rolled up her sleeves, pulled her jeans to a suitable plumber-hipster angle, and proceeded to find the blockage.

A suitably mortified bunch of onlookers (today is our local show holiday), oohed and aahed, grimaced and groaned, as the job proceeded. And it wasn't pretty. Unable to be cleared from the 'toilet-end' we set about taking the lid off the septic. More oohs and aahs! The blockage was cleared and we're now flushing freely.

With Matthew just receiving a call to Rolleston tomorrow, the better part of my day will be spent raking hay! So much for house-cleaning.... Damn!!!

  1. Ah yes, the mysteries of septic tanks; intriguing and disgusting at the same time...and don't worry - the housework isn't going anywhere. It will still be there when you finish raking hay.
