Moonlight & roses

leave a comment »

…sounds more romantic than poo & roses, right?

Today was a lovely, lovely day, except for the fact that the drains overflowed with raw sewerage all over my garden, floating round the roses. (Ring around the rosies, indeed) (Pocket full of pooseys.)

It started off with about thirty minutes (max) of lovely, cleansing rain. That is, until it got all dammed up and the drains started overflowing!

It actually bubbled up out of our shower a bit. (Thankfully, we bath instead of showering, or that would have been more upsetting than it actually was).

But outside our back door was the main problem. Luckily, there is a step up to our door, but beyond that it was quite flooded, with the bits of raw sewerage floating past.

There’s  just no delicate way of putting this – the sewerage works are up to sh*t around here.

We (and by that I mean our complex of four town houses) are a corner unit, so we’re basically getting the whole street’s sewerage going past us. And it appears to be blocked. I suppose I had better phone the municipality tomorrow, if I know what’s good for me.

The water has gone down now, and we sprayed vigourously with the hose-pipe outside the door to clean up, and swept with a (soon to be disposed of) broom.

But we are now living in fear of the rainy season, which is nigh. Three days of continuous rainfall is going to be merry hell around here if this drain doesn’t get unblocked, and soon!
