Stupid People

What a day today, the rain has stopped thanks goodness but the morons keep driving through the village thinking that their little cars can drive perfectly well throught 3 feet yes 3 feet of water.
The first one of the day which in my opinion should not be driving anything because they are way too thick.Here is the story.
Got woken up this am to someone trying to knock the door down, it turned out to be a stupid woman who drove into the flood with the depth stick at the side showing you it's 3 feet deep, asking if we could pull her out with our car (no sorry love we aren't as stupid as you) so we said to ring the AA/RAC who would come to her rescue. It wasn't her fault she drove into the flood it was because her sat nav had told her to go that way. We said well you can see the depth stick at the side which tells you it's 3 feet deep and her reply was i don't know measurements i thought it was 3 tiny feet, to which i nearly wet myself. Surely no one can be so thick. Eventually the farmer came to tow her out and all you could see was water pouring out. AA man came to tow her away and he wasn't impressed.
Later this evening fire crews arrived so out i went (of course they may have needed help) would you believe yet another stupid person stuck in the water called the fire brigade out.
What worries me is that these people drive cars.
I have pics of the daff women this morning i will put pics on later. Couldn't get one of the fire crews because it was too dark (sorry to dissapoint)

Here are some pics of Lake Windermere taken today. We have had so much rain over such a short space of time. The pics with Meg on dry land are from yesterday lunch time, that is now under a serious amount of water.

At our sailing club we have had boats dissapear, the toilets/clubhouse/bosun's store are all flooded.

The National Trusts tea room and Shop are flooded.

We also have flooding outside our house.

What can i say me and my girls went to see HSM3 tonight and there were kids screaming/shouting/clapping you couldn't hear half of it.

Will try and get some crafting done in the next week but the girls are off school so i might just have to talk about it instead :)

Thanks Maddy/Calv for helping me get my pics down to a size that you can see.
Calv we won't mention the blonde bit:)

Crafty Building

Well today has been taken up by my roof trusses arriving at 8 this morning :)

It has taken weeks of talking to people who don't listen to get these done.

We were very very lucky that a friend from the village was available to help us move these seriously heavy bits of woood or they would still be on the wagon.

The delivery man was a very nice man so i made him a bacon buttie and a cuppa.

I am adding a few pics so you can get the jist of how big my room will be by the gap in the middle of the trusses, the triangle bits on the edges will probably be some kind of storage.

Thanks for the comments girls it was a lovely surprise :):)
Well today i have had a day off and went to my friends house for a crafty day :):):) i have to say not much crafting was done but we had a good old natter.
She has a amazing amount of scrapbooks that even i was impressed, she hasn't made one at all yet she just like's to look at them.
I only did a bit of stamping so hopefully will turn those into cards in a couple of days and show them to you they were the Bear stamps (forever friends) ?
Also my punches came from SU today and i have managed to trap my boob already :( owch
You may have noticed that i managed to get some wallpaper on my blog (thanks girls) but still trying to work out how to get a header.
