Ourweather is still mostly very mild, we have temperatures between 16 and 18C(next week might come to 19 or 20C), here and there a little bit of rain, so se cannot complain, specially with the high energy prizes at the moment, we don;t need to have put on the CV very often and that saves a lot of gas and so a lot of money, but we don;t know what the winter will bring us.
Last week Monday our plumber came to repair the leak and he fixed the leak with a new kind of pipe(a flexible one) and removed all lead pipes that still were under the floors, and replaced them for new ones, and then wentthat under our bedroom, the sand there still was so very wet and not good smelling either and he discovered that there was a part of an old sewer pipe, going to the street that was broken! So you might be able to imagine what mess there was, yak. So he came next day to replce that part with new pvc ewer pipe, had to break open a part of the street to be able to attach the pvc pipe on the outer sewer pipe. Then he advised us to put some floor isolation under the floor of the bedroom, first it is good against cold, of course but also holds down the all the moist that was there and the smell too. And it would help to dry in time. So this also wasn;t and expected post, but now we have aout 50 cm. thick isolation material, it looks like small potatoe chips but then from styrofoam.Well, all together it was a big job but now we shouldn;t have any old waterpipes anymore and we should be safe for several years at the least. Pfffff, it did cost us quite some money, but I was glad he didn;t have to break open our shower room to be able to place the new pipes. Perhaps we will let him replace the shower room/toilet next year. It is all already rather old and could have a refreshing look. However, that will cost really quite some money, so we let that be for the moment, And ou plumber also didn;t had any time anymore this year for such a big job. After he was gone, we started to clean the house, specially at the places where the floor has been open for a part. Gosh, all around there was very fine dust or perhaps sand, it took us two days of hard labour to get it done , or at the least the most urgent of it.
Better not to think too much about the spent money, but is also is a good feeling that normally we will not have water trouble in the near future.
We did have our two vaccinations from our doctor, the one for flu and the one for pneumococci. Glad I didn;t have much trouble of them, just about one day that both arms had a bit of sensitive spot, that's all. Next thing will be to take the new covid vaccination for this winter, I guess. But I will wait a few weeks, I think.
That's about all folks! I hope you all had a fine week and I wish you a wonderful week to come, stay safe please!
