Not nice!

Hello friends

If you follow me on Facebook you will already have seen what awaited 
me at the shop/studio on yesterday morning....
I arrived to discover water has been coming through the ceiling from the flat above.
 The main damage so far seems to be in the middle room which is my craft room,
there is some in the corner of the stock room and possibly a little in the main shop too.
Where I haven't been in the studio/shop a great deal due to the hospital trips,
I had not realised it was seeping through but then no mistaking this...
  The source of the leak will need to be found and then everything will need to dry out, not great in Winter!  The landlords were supposed to send an emergency worker out - 
I think he got lost as no sign of him yet!
As you can imagine, very upsetting.
First thing Monday, fingers crossed things will start to get sorted - until then,
back to my dining table and conservatory - nothing should stop craft! 

I am due to hold my Christmas class next Sunday - I will keep you posted with regards to that.
I'm hoping to go ahead but for those of you who have booked, I will be sure to contact you
to confirm.

Website orders and Charity kits will be unaffected by this nastiness.
I refuse to let it get me down!! :)

I'm thinking this water business is a little deja vu....
this is the ceiling in my previous studio following a leak...perhaps leaks follow me!

On a happier note, Elliott is having a nice weekend - he went out shopping 
yesterday and is back glued to his computer.  The hospital have given him a 
huge tub of face/head cream - I told him all male models have a beauty routine! 

Take care friends, 
back tomorrow with a crafty post!

Looks a mess but can be sorted I,m sure. Well done Elliott too. Xxx

Oh boy what else can happen, everything is being thrown at you these days. It can be fixed but what an upheaval at a time you need calm. Great news about Elliott, get him to follow his "beauty regime" it will help.

Oh dear - what a shame! Can you claim on insurance? I'm glad that Elliot is doing well though - and that's the most important thing.

Sue Yorkshire said...

I did see this on Facebook's not what you need at any time.

Hope the landlord gets it sorted soon and has it all back to being perfect and the way you want it soon

Elliott's weekend sounds really good, He is such a handsome chap thought he had a beauty routine already!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Hi Christine. Sorry to see the mess but like you say don't let it get you down. Have your rant, rave, scream, shout and tears then move on to getting it sorted. it is not important is it, just inanimate objects that can, amd will, be fixed (even if so slowly that it takes many hours to show up to help, some people just don't take a pride in their job!) Fingers crossed it gets done swiftly for you. Good to hear Elliott has been out and about. Try and have a good day today. Take care.

Oh dear Christine this is just not what you need right now! I am sure you won't let it get you down, I guess in the grand scheme of things it is a minor upset. Lets hope the landlord gets it sorted ASAP! Hugs Susan x

Jane Willis said...

What a mess! I hope they get it sorted out quickly

Janice said...

Oh don't need this now Christine. I really hope the landlord gets the wheels in motion tomorrow and things start to be put right.
So pleased to hear that Elliot is doing well, it must be such a relief for you and I'm sure he's proud of himself.

Hi Christine,
No wonder you can't wait for 2014!
After all the cards you've been dealt this year, it is so good to hear that you are refusing to let this get you down. I think I would be sitting in a corner having a good sob1! I think Elliott's illness must be helping you to put things into scale and you have had so much to deal with that you are definitely going to be a much stronger person. Things can only get better now surely!!!

Lucycat said...

Hi Christine,
This is not your year roll on 2014,things must get better for you. I hope things soon get sorted and you can start to dry everything out.
Really pleased Elliott had a good day shopping.
I hope week two goes well at the hospital. Take care. x.

Morning Christine,
Life can be a bummer at times, you could have done without this aggro, I hope it gets sorted asap. Sounds like Elliot had a good day shopping.
Keep your chin up.

Laura O said...

Oh no !!!!looks a mess the big thing is to find the leak good luck on that and hopefully then all will be ok

Carolyn Bell said...

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, What a horrible discovery, especially when you want to enjoy the restful weekend. Hopefully the emergency worker will work his magic, very quickly.
Elliott,so glad you have been having a 'shopping spree', bet you are enjoying the weekend. Hope week 2 goes equally well. You are in all our thoughts.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Sandra Biggs said...

Hi Christine, What more could go wrong. Bet you feel like you are taking one step forward and two back. Glad Elliot had a good weekend. Just keep telling him that how does all these handsome models/actors look good. Take care and hope everything gets sorted soon.

Valerie said...

I am sure that it will all get sorted soon. Glad to hear that Elliott is starting moisturising early in life instead of waiting until all these damn wrinkles appear. Keep your chin up. Valerie

nattyboots said...

Hi Christine
It never rains but it pours { sorry about the pun}
But hey it will get resolved and soon hopefully, get on to those workers if they have not turned up by 9 o"clock Monday Morning .

Tell Elliott all the cool guys use a face regime { my son and his friends swap tips too, as a nice soft face pulls in the gals . lol }

Take Care

Hi Christine

What a mess, lets hope it's sorted out very soon. Life seems to be throwing the book at you lately. But don't let it get you down. Big hugs to you all, and remind Elliot of his beauty treatment. will the landlord pay for the damage or do you have to claim. Perhaps upstairs will have to pay for it if the landlord doesn't.

EmmaT said...

Morning Christine.

Oh No that leak is horrid, looks a mess but I hope once its dried out the damage isn't too bad for you. As if you haven't got enough to cope with at the moment.

Pleased to hear Elliott is having a good weekend, and yep a lot of men now use beauty products.
Love Emma x

Oh how unpleasant but hopefully can be sorted quickly. Happy crafting Phil D

Lacelady said...

Oh, dear, what a real nuisance. I feel just the same when these things happen, it always feels worse, now I am on my own, compared to when there were two of us to keep each other going. Congrats on keeping Elliott going - well done, sending (((((((((((((hugs))))))))))

Stamping Bubbles said...

Oh Christine what a mess. I hope you find the source of the leak soon. Please don't let this get you down. You are amazing and will come through this dark time shining I'm sure.

Jean Z said...

Hi Christine, So upsetting at any time but so near to Christmas, Don't let it get you down as long as Elliott and the rest of the family are ok that's what matters. Does make you mad though especially when the builders don't turn up and never let you know why very bad manners but it's like that now, chin up love Jean Z xxx

hazel young said...

Glad you are felling more positive today:). hopefully they will stop the leak quickly and it will dry out so you can get back to normality. glad Elliott is having a nice weekend hope next week isn't to harsh on your all xx hazel

How devastating. Glad to hear you have such a bright outlook and you always 'carry on crafting' regardless. Great to hear Elliott is doing so well - like the male model bit and I agree most definitely...
Take care

ros hodgkins said...

Hi Christine, There isn't much to say that hasn't already been said. The insurance people have huge heaters that can dry out rooms very quickly, so hopeful that your next week's class will go ahead.
Well done Elliott one week further on with your treatments.

Hello Christine
Its an awful sight at the minute but if you hadn't gone when you did... it would have been a disaster!
Cheer up though Christine its someone else's mess to clear up!
I think you have enough to take care of at the moment.
Try to focus on your lad, and let the landlord worry, he hasn't been checking the property, and making sure it was sound!
Its so thoughtless of him and it will be costly for him too!
I hope Elliott keeps up his beauty routine... He is being a brave boy.
Christine you seem to have a fair share this year, but it will soon be 2014, and "The Only way is up." I'm reading that book by Carole at the eyeopener to how some people live, but the most important lesson is good friends and I'm sure you have many
Take care

Mary by the Sea said...

Hi there, what a pain for you. A de-humidifier can really help dry things out. Fingers crossed that landlord gets things sorted out for you.

Good luck next week Elliott.

Here's to things getting better for clan Emberson.

1st December the Christmas decs can go up...whoopi...

Take care, xx

SusanP, Kent said...

I was going to say 'hope you're having a lovely weekend', but the mess in your lovely studio has probably put paid to that! More crappiness, as Elliott would say!I am so sorry. I know that you're a positive person and will get through this in your usual upbeat way with your amazing family. I do hope it gets sorted quickly and NOT at your expense. We are here for you.
Take care.

Toni said...

Christine, you are always so positive no matter what life throws at you. I really admire you for that.... And of course your crafting skills. Hopefully things will be sorted soon for you.
Glad Elliott is having a good weekend though. He deserves it.
Take care
Toni xx

Janice said...

I am amazed at your good spirits Chris, you keep being so positive - despite all that has happened this year - all I can hope is that 2014 will be your best year !! Fingers crossed that you manage to repair the shop and get back to crafting there. Janice xx

Unknown said...

Hi Christine,

Hi Christine. Your troubles this year seem very unfair. You're a very strong lady and I know you'll get through it and hope 2014 is brilliant for you.

Hello Christine, well what can I say that hasn't already been said?I hope that it is soon sorted with minimal trouble for you. I was really pleased to hear that Elliott's shopping trip went well and he is enjoying his purchases! Hope week 2 of the treatment goes as well as the last one.
BIG HUGS and much love,

loftylass said...

Oh Christine.... what can I say that hasn't already been said....
I feel deeply for you and hope this too will be quickly dealt with. Pleased to hear that Elliott is progressing well - love the idea of his beauty regime (we could all do with some of that!!)
Take care.

Maggie said...

Good heavens. Don't you have enough to deal with right now??! Well, as they say - when life throws lemons at you, make lemonade! Well done Elliott. Shopping and a smooth face. Can't get better than that! All the best for a quick resolution in the craft room. xxMargaretxx

LoraineC said...

Oh!! I'm sorry, water does such damage. Words fail me really and am trying to think of something profound to say and am failing!! So, thinking of you and hope it gets sorted quickly and I'm glad Elliot has had a good weekend. Hope next week goes well x

Carole Z said...

Goodness , it's one thing after another for you...I'm so sorry ... On the plus side, I'm pleased Elliott has had a good weekend, hugs Carole Z xx
