Having working water is a blessing I miss. I miss taking showers, going to the bathroom in a toilet, washing my clothes, and well...that is all I do with water around here! Mum does most of the rest. It isn't mom's fault, it just needs taken care of. Again.
I don't think people realise how amazing working water is in a house. Living off the grid is well and good, but seriously? I've done my time camping. Give me modern conveniences and a book and a cat and I'm good. I can go without wifi, electric lights, heat (unless the temp really drops!), and the microwave, but let me keep the plumbing and washing machine. Oh, and a bed with a mattress. I'm getting too aged to sleep on the ground or floor!
