Water is back!

Oh joy. I was lying awake at around 3.40am Friday night/Saturday morning, when I heard a sound which was like sweet music to my ears. The sound of water filling up the tank in the attic. I elbowed John awake.

"Did you hear that?"

"Wha what what?"

"The tank, it's filling up with WATER!!"

"Really? Great"

"Shall we have a shag to celebrate?"

"Go back to sleep, Jane"

*small voice* "Oh, okay"

Thankfully the water is back! I was feeling for you there.

Hoping this year brings everything you dream for.

Yay, water!

(I'd've made the trip to the nice full taps especially to get some nice cold water to dribble down his neck, after that 'enthusiastic' response).

Hooray for water! Glad to hear it's back. What a mess we've had with this water situation.

@ Lisa - thanks!

@ May - If I'd done that he would probably have gotten his own sweet revenge when I least expected it.

@ Fran - I heard Dublin was hit alright. Pain in the arse, but I suppose we have to remember how fortunate we are compared to other poor unfortunates in the world.

@ Xbox - I know, terrible smut for an ould married wan like me.

@ C - Total mess. I will never wish for snow again!

I'm writing this as you commented over on Xbox4NappyRashes site congratulating him on the birth of his daughter.

I am writing it here because this post is down the page a bit and i don't want him to see it :)

A while ago, before Martin's (xbox4nappyrash) wife got pregnant I promised I would post a youtube video of me singing "Yes" by Mcalomont & Butler whilst accompanying myself on the ukulele to celebrate the birth of their child.

This will not be a pretty sight as I can neither sing, nor really play the ukulele (this isn't false modesty - I really can't).

However what I thought might make it really cool would be instead of just a straight video I put together a montage of videos shot by readers of his blog all celebrating - i.e. dancing, sticking thumbs up, cheering, holding up signs, that sort of thing. It would have to be something that would work without sound as I would put my (awful) soundtrack over the top of it.

It would be great if you could participate. If you send me a short 5-15 second video clip (or at a push a photo, but a video would be much better) along with your name and blog then I'll put it together with other submissions and get something ready for the end of the week. I think it would be a really nice thing to do for martin to show him and E how pleased we are for him. and Martin has been incredibly supportive of me and my various projects in the past.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. My email address is dghughes28@yahoo.co.uk

Thanks again.

Dan.
