Day One was frantic panic and mopping up water and washing saturated clothes and trying to clear everything up. Day Two was all launderettes and friends coming around and newspaper and second order mopping up. Day Three is a day at home half-working and half-dealing with landlords and people coming to see if the carpet’s salvageable. Day Four (and maybe Day Five and Day Six and … ) will be back at work, and dealing with the insurance company and trying to work out how to get all the carpet in all the rooms of the house replaced at the same time while working normal hours and keeping everything I own somewhere inside the flat. It’s just a distraction, but it’s clogging up a lot of my time at the moment.
