Several of you asked how DD3 managed to get the shampoo out of her hair when our water was suddenly cut off.....our electric shower is supplied from the cold water supply pipe, which is the one damaged.
Our domestic *hot* water comes via an old-fashioned back-boiler which heats and then stores the hot water in a storage tank. Even though the cold water was cut off, we did still have hot water ; certainly enough for DD3 to rinse her hair thoroughly.
A Happy St Valentine's Day to you all, by the way ! I am now the proud possessor of Little Women on dvd, which I have long wanted. DH now has Tron, which he loves :-)
