Yesterday we awoke to find we had no water coming from the cold tap. I am so used to it being available that hands up I totally take it for granted. My initial reaction was one of slight panic as I worked out what we needed to do to not empty the tank too quickly....not run the washing machine, strip wash for everyone etc etc Once I'd found out that it was due to a burst pipe just round the corner and that the problem was going to be fixed within the next half an hour I was able to relax. Later on I realised what a first world problem that temporary blip in my life was...so many parts of the world have no access to clean water or they have to walk miles to get it every day so today I am extremely thankful for one of the things I scarcely noticed or gave much thought to. This timely little film popped up on my feed today.
