What we do in an emergency. I am currently looking after my neighbour's B&B as her father in law who was living in India died and her and her husband have had to dash to India to sort out all the funeral arrangements and so on. On the night before she left at 8pm we discovered a leak while she was briefing me. Luckily my plumber came out (8pm on a Sat night bless) and thought we had it sorted. So I am minding the shop as best I can as she had a ton of people booked in and it is a really busy bridal fair so people could not be booked out at short notice. However it put me in mind of what we do in an emergency. Then on Sunday we discovered another leak plus the original one had come back so on the phone to the plumber as I couldn't just leave it and her brother couldn't get here till 5.30 so I asked if it was OK to sort it as my plumber has done work at her place and knows where everything is ie stop cocks! It seems to be all sorted and we are going to wait till she gets back to tell her as she can't do anything about it till she gets back so there is no point worrying her. Or should I ring? What do people think? It is a complete nightmare. While I was writing this I have just been called away to deal with yet another water problem with another room as water has just come flooding out of a toilet tank (think it may be due to the messing about with the water earlier in the day) OH dear.
