Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I had a lovely Christmas Day and spent yesterday taking it easy and resting up as I felt so tired, like many of you. Today I have been housebound, not because of this disease but due to the flooding we are experiencing at the moment. I am lucky in that the floodwaters should not reach my home, hopefully. Last night an area only a mile away had to be evacuated to a local school. The Emergency Services, Army and Mountain Rescue ferried people in rafts, I felt so sorry for them having to leave their homes. It is bad enough seeing other towns and cities dealing with this but really hits hard when it is your own city. People who can get out have been taking food, clothing and blankets to the school and Morrisons donated a huge amount of fresh food as they are closed and cut off by the water. I was watching the news and can't believe how quickly this has happened. My son went for a walk this afternoon and took this picture of our previous home which is a 15 minute walk away and as you can see is totally surrounded by water. We have been told power cuts are likely so we have torches and candles ready in case. The river is due to peak tomorrow morning, let's hope it doesn't cause more damage. A huge thank you to the Emergency Services, and everyone else who is helping out, people do rally together when needed. Hope you are all avoiding the floods. Take care and stay safe. X
