Where is Super Mario when you need him?

I don't know exactly how it happened, but a pipe seemingly got loose and now I have a wet carpet in my boiler closet. I've mopped it up now, calmly.
My first reaction when I saw what was happening was
Rational thought: Your father showed you where to turn the water off
Panic taking over: RUN TO YOUR NEIGHBOURS!!!!!!!!

So I ran to my neighbours and they were so friendly \;_;x/ When we got back upstairs the water had stopped flowing, so now I just had a very wet and warm carpet. I started mopping up straight away and lovely neighbour lady gave me an emergency number to call, but they said they could only send out plumber if it hadn't stopped by itself.
So.... I'm relying on duct tape and an empty instant coffee glass supporting the pipe to hold out until I get instructions from my father or one of the builders tomorrow morning (there are still new houses being built in the area.) I hope they work on Saturdays, too. I can't remember...

Incidently... is my entry set to Rich Text, or did LJ get a makeover? o_Ox
*tries out Tumblr style mood GIF*

OK, LJ just got a makeover ^^x*

Haha, that pic sums up how my reaction would have been like XDD And this is the one thing I hate about living alone: you're all by yourself is something happens. But glad your neighbours are so nice and friendly! hope the duct tape holds what it promises! ^^

It's weired how you turn back into child in these situations XD
It actually dried quite well, I've called my uncle, he'll come round as soon as he can to look at it.

I still have hot water and everything, so I think it was really the pipe that unscrewed itself for no apparent reason o_Ox We'll see.
