Oh what a night (after what a day!!)

Well have to say have had a pretty stressful couple of days, do you remember I told you a couple of weeks ago that our fence came down in those winds? Well I finally managed to get some replacement posts ordered and G was off this weekend so he decided to dig the holes ready for their arrival. All was going well until the last hole when he hit water!!! And by this I mean he's either hit the water table or a spring because boy did it start pouring out the ground!!
Never fear a few years ago we put land drainage in our back garden so we'd just dig a trench from the new water feature to join up with the drains.
G worked really hard digging new trenches and I bailed water out of the trenchs as we weren't sure how deep they'd fill. But it now seems to have found a level and hasn't got any deeper for the last 18 hrs so we'll just leave it like that until we can put the new drains in next weekend!

But what about Abba night I can hear you all say, well after our adventures of the day we needed it and boy did we have fun, although unfortunately I couldn't dance as I'd hurt my back bailing water.
It's ABBA!! well no but the girls were very good!
Me with my best pal Jane
Janes hubby Colin with "his girls"
Colin, Kevin and G all slightly well lubricated
Dad dancing! 
Kevin with his lovely girlfreind Donna
What can I say!!

I have actually been crying with laughter looking at the pics from last night all 130 of them! But at the end of the day we all had a Great time and collapsed into bed in the wee small hours.
