    S0o today for the 1st time, I flooded my van, Yes 2 and a 1/2 years ive been filling that thing but today I did not connect a pipe properly and it flooded for about 2 hours. There I am with a bucket getting it out of the foot well bit. To top it off, its parked in my garage which is also flooded.

    My own stupidity getting complacent.

    Its bad enough that im home so dam early as had only 2 hours work booked in and earnt a measly £48. On such a glorious day too. The 1st week I have not been catching up due to the fanbloodytastic weather....

    And

    "yes there is more"

    I hurt my finger an netball last night. think its broken,

    So im having a bad week. Feel free to give me sympathy as im needing it write now. Don't worry I will hug myself

    Aw shazzy we all get those days. I flooded my bloody van several time due to filling the tank and forgetting to come back finding the water brimming over the top and into the van!! I ended up drilling small holes in my footwell to get all the water out! Grab a cider sit in the sun and all will be good once more;)

    shazzy692002 I flood my van at least twice a month as I always forget it's filling as don't have an auto cut out fitted so know how you feel. Sometimes I just drive around after it's been flooded and as I look behind in me mirrors I'm leaving a trail of water behind me. I get the odd look and some drivers start honking their horns too :D

    A young brunette goes into the doctor’s office and says that her body hurts wherever she touches it.
    “Impossible,” says the doctor. “Show me.”
    She takes her finger and pushes her elbow and screams in agony. She pushes her knee and screams, pushes her ankle and screams and so it goes on, everywhere she touches makes her scream.
    The doctor says, “You’re not really a brunette, are you?”
    She says, “No, I’m really a blonde.”
    “I thought so,” he says. “Your finger is broken.”

    Hurty fingers are a pain in the bum so hope you can work ok with it strapped up if its broken.;)

    Only a cruel person would laff at my expense!!!! I decided I don't like Tuffers any more. hee hee.

    I would have never been able to drive it Smurf , the footwell was chin deep. lol. I only went in there to get a scrim to do my inside house windows.

    As you can imagine, my house windows did not get done, so if anyone knows a w/c let me know. xx
