After torrential rain we have ponds and pools everywhere, I called Dixon the builder to ask what can be done to channel the water away from the building. Outside the kitchen door is like a swimming pool. He said the answer is to dig two underground tanks for the rain water, one at the back the other at the front. How much will that cost ?? Around £500 per tank. I felt really down, more unexpected expense, we seem to go two steps forward and one back. We will definately have to start the one at the back as that is the worst area. During the rainy season we cannot have water just laid or it becomes a breeding ground for the mosquitoes we must get it away to keep the children safe.
