    Ok.. for the sake of this thread and people posting "your an idiot" I know i'm an idiot, so don't bother telling me.

    Well, I put the bath water on.. went back to my pc desk and chucked on my headphones... well you can guess what happens next, so the house is abit... wet.

    Its only appears to be minor damage and there doesnt appear to be anything seriously wrong except the obvious.. wet problem which is now drying up quite nicely.

    Our lights are out(we have one of them boxes that automatically cuts the supply off if something like this happens) and i'm just wondering if its still ok to use our plug sockets?(I hope so, for my sake) None of the sockets are wet, or anything its just that thing in my head thats getting to me... Ah, we also have a little cooker problem, it doesn't seem to be turning on, could it be part of the switch thing aswell? our plug socket switches work, just not the cooker switch..

    I basically need some advice on how long will it take for the lights to work again and are my sockets still ok to use?.. the switch on our box is flipped off, if we flip it to check in a couple of days that the lights are ok will it be safe?

    I you're insured and covered with accidental damage, then give them a call.

    If not for the sake of safety get the lot checked out by a qualified electrician. Always better safe than sorry.
