Remember GG's daring do? Well that took care of that until the next storm with 80 mph winds. We arrived home to find the tree branches full of.....guess. Blossoms? No? Shingles? Yes. Monday the roofer arrived, bid accepted we settled down to wait for the workmen. But first, today, came the rain. A steady rainfall that brought us 3 inches outdoors and some indoors .So while Mr. Johns made the loo sparkle, the kitchen ceiling was weeping.
A few early morning polite phone calls brought the roofers out in the rain to cover up the holes. Another call has landed me an appointment with an insurance adjuster on Monday. Manners seem to be an effective method of achieving desired results, manners and a sense of humor. Never discount the value of a few laughs.
Kitchen and bathroom have been cleaned and a few pictures taken. We have kept the original tile installed in 1938. Though my first wallpaper choice was a black and white butterfly print, when the book fell open to Retro Starburst, we were sold. Just a tiny bit of metallic glimmer and some strokes of black to tie it into the tiles.
And a vase of frittilaria to remind us all the April showers are on the way, eek.
What's that Irish blessing about a roof over your head? Could you say it for us?
