It has gone on for days, the end of our road is flooded and so David has to take a 5 mile detour to get to work and I have to drive through massive puddles to get to my job.

It started with me getting up and sorting out the cheques etc. to pay into the bank for David's business, followed by a large food shop and on my way home from the food shop I was thinking that the rest of the day would be pants too as I had all of David's suppliers to pay (the joy of being married to someone who is self employed) a job that takes several hours.
