Thankful Thursday - the Good In a Septic...

This Thursday I am grateful for two things. Oh so very very grateful.

1. I am thankful that I was not home alone when our septic overflowed from two points on Sunday night.

2. I am thankful for Steve the Country Plumber who turned up less than an hour after I called him, located our septic tank, was apologetic that he had to tear up some concrete*, unblocked the septic tank, came and had a cup of tea and a Tim Tam, showed me pics of his granddaughter on his iPhone, covered up the giant holes in our yard, and only charged us $120. I love the country.

*PS Who covers the septic tank access point with concrete? Seriously? Steve the Plumber called the last tradies Numbskulls. I heartily agreed.

Steve did a stellar job covering the open pit.

That used to be a concrete path with lush green lawn next to it.

Now, I'm thankful I have running water and plumbing that works again. There's far more to this story, but as I'm not thankful for it (AT ALL) you'll need to tune in tomorrow. Now, I bask in the glow of a good country plumber.

What are you thankful for?
