Do you remember my friend Charlene? You might remember seeing her at BritMums Live. She’s always in my back pocket – either I’m at hers or she’s at mine. We don’t let little things, like a flood, stop us!
She invited me to her house for a cup of coffee. There was just the small issue of four feet of Thames water surrounding her house. But not to fear! Angler waders solved that problem.
We left the cars on higher ground, and I put on my waders and went passed the “road closed” sign…
Oh what a lovely morning. Can you feel the sun on your face? Care for a walk IN the river?
Not sure about this look. Does my bum look big in this?
Luckily Charlene’s house is built on stilts, so everything inside is dry.
Here’s the view from the third floor.
Even though it was chaos outside, inside was surprisingly quiet. We sipped coffee and listened to the water rushing through the rafters below us.
Despite the lovely lake side view, I’m still glad we don’t live on the river!
