Weekend....Ups and Downs...

Let me tell you about my weekend so far.... Friday night I go check on the new house I'm building (had been in Berlin in meetings for a couple of days) and I notice my entire basement is FLOODED...

Belgium has been hit with torrential rains and storms lately, and the ground is utterly saturated. Wheather report indicates we'll get more of the same for days to come Stupid country. Rain and taxes is all you get.

Nothing I can do right there and then as it's pitch dark and the place does not have electricity yet.

So I go home and try and sleep, and fail miserably due to worrying about the 5 inches of muddy water in my basement & garage...

So I get up at 6.30AM today, and head out to the new place. Spend 7 hours straight digging ditches so the water can get out to the street, then start to mop up.

All our lighting was in that basement waiting to be installed... 17,000 euros worth... I hope it's not all ruined

This afternoon was better. Went on a VIP arrangement for the new Cirque Du Soleil show (Varekai) in Antwerp. Amazing show, and good food & champagne...

So you can say it's a weekend with ups and downs...

My back is utterly destroyed from all the digging and using the pick-axe to dig through the concrete that was left on the driveway... I'm in pain, so using alcohol to numb it

So how was your weekend ?

Dam Alex, that is terrible hopefully your items in the basement are not ruined. crossed


So far my weekend has been good, installed my exhaust manifold on my Diesel, and will change the oil on my wife's jeep tomorrow.

Going to the Keg Steakhouse for dinner soon with the family, if you were here and invite to join us.

No more earthmover equipment left on your site..

how did you get the water out of the basement? Generator and water pump?

Got drunk Friday.... Went to a comedy show and got drunk on Saturday...


Now I'm relaxing and surfing the web since I didn't have internet yesterday cuz of some construction near my house..

we learned where we will be relocating to this weekend, but that's about it. Shooting for early summer.
