The ugly sound was not familiar.
By the morning we had no water in any cold water tap and the phone rang to give us a computer message from the water board (United Utilities) that there had been a burst nearby.
We spent the morning without water, and without a shower.
I thought back 60 years.
I then had one bath a week, on Friday’s.
By the following Thursday my collar and cuffs were black.
This is life. But are we healthier?
