Although usually its outside rather than in! We had a small, erm, ‘water feature’ develop in our house yesterday. Which wasn’t intentional, attractive or particularly welcome. The insurance supplied us with a plumber within an hour or so, so the leak itself didn’t last, but we’re still dealing with the aftermath- damp walls, bulging wallpaper, possibly water damaged roof space… and a bubble on my bedroom ceiling which we burst in a slightly more controlled way than would have happened had we left it.. I retired to the sofabed rather than get dripped on all night! Anywyay, apart from having to wait for the next lot of workmen (a ‘drying company’ are expected sometime, visions of men turning up with huge industrial hairdryers.. ;)) we’re ok. In one piece, not too damp, muddling along.
The slight inconvenience is put into perspective by other news. I won’t go into details here, but I found out just today that my cousin is struggling with some quite serious health problems. He’s in good hands, and there isn’t a lot that we can do but watch and wait, and hope. And pray. For him, his mum (my mums sister) and brother. For my mum who will bear a lot of this herself, along with my dad. If you can, I don’t often ask, but please remember Matthew and his family. Thank you so much.
