Recent floods in the UK

In the last few days I cannot bear to watch the news talking about the floods in Cumbria and other parts of England. Rescue teams have been absolutely wonderful but my heart breaks seeing people re-enter their homes that are all but ruined. It’s not just the furniture, the walls, the carpets etc., it is the memories, the photos, the feeling of home that those families lost. I cannot even imagine how they must be feeling. Some people haven’t lost their sense of humour in those dire circumstances saying that their kids thought this to be the best adventure of their lives. The innocence of youth is wonderful but it will be down to adults to deal with the aftermath and I hope that the government will make sure that that families are temporarily re-housed and that the insurance companies pay fully the claims, without the usual delays, so people can get on with their lives.
