ZEN+ : Simple, Direct, Effective : ZEN+ Benefits

Bright Orange Water?

It was about 19:00 last night and Ollie and I were watching Buffy re-runs.

And there was a knock on the front door.

Now, if you haven’t got an appointment, and you knock on my front door… You might be waiting a long time for a reply.

But as I looked at the shape through the frosted glass I realised it was my neighbour.

I like my neighbour.

Having had so many bad ones over the years, I really appreciate the family next door.

Pausing Buffy, I got up to see what he wanted.

He asked if I’d noticed any problems with the water?

Because apparently theirs was bright orange.

So I went to check and this is what happened:

Turns out South West Water have a burst water main a few miles away and as a result the water has turned brown.

Something to do with rust.


Not convinced.

It’s better this morning – but still not 100%

As I’m writing this I’ve got the kitchen cold water tap running as SW Water recommend leaving the mains tap running for up to an hour to fix the problem.

Seem like an incredible waste of water to me.

Oh well.

“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change” – and all that.

But you know what?

It has made me realise I take clean, safe running water for granted.

How many people in the world right now don’t have this luxury?

And it’s got me wondering what else I’m taking for granted right now?


Well it’s time for Louis morning walk.

And whilst Louis sniffs and whizzes, I’ll be unearthing the great things in my life I’m currently taking for granted.

I suggest you take a few minutes and do the same.

Bye for now


P.S. Gratitude is just one simple and powerful tool that needs to be part of your living and ageing well arsenal.

You’ll find the other…
