Thank you all so much for replying so quickly. We made a huge discovery this morning and that someone had cut our water pipe from the mains and took all the connections!!
We saw a man on the road and asked if he knew anything about it and he said yes... he had done this as we can't take water from there. As to why, we do not know however he showed us where we should be connecting it and told us that in 1 hour someone will come and fix the problem as the pipe has to be dug up. This was at 9:30 this morning and yet we still don't have water and the pipe is still not attached, maybe later tonight I will be able to flush my toilet for the first time!!
Thank goodness for the breeze today.
