I am now on my annual summer leave from work. Hurray I shout, but wait!!!
The weather is the absolute pits. I can't believe we are into June - yes June I say! It is so cold, really windy and very rainy. Yuk!! In fact we have just put the lounge fire on this evening as it is sooo cold tonight.
However there is another reason for the cold in the house. Thursday morning we woke to strong smell of wet wallpaper. Mmmm where can that be coming from. We soon discovered - the water tank in the attic had sprung a leak which resulted in the ceiling of one of the bedrooms getting more than slightly damp.
So poor Danny has spent the last 4 days trying to fix it, putting in a new tank etc. As a result we have no heating and no hot water - only the shower has any warmth to it. We are hoping by tomorrow however it will all be sorted.
What a start to a holiday!!!!
Anyway the good news - Karen came home from her holiday in Athens on Thursday and she loved it.
She saw lots, and is a girl who takes after her old mum and took lots and lots of pics - ha ha I taught that girl well :))
It is so nice to have her home again.
Anyway yesterday afternoon there was a break in the rain for a couple of hours and Karen and I took advantage and went to the local park and had a lovely afternoon.
It was so pretty and peaceful there.
We also discovered this -
A totally unassuming tree stump - or so you would think!
Lets have a closer look
Look at what was inside
Somebody had carved inside the tree stump!
How cool is that - so clever too! ))
Can you see the top of Karen's head lol.
Anyway it was a fun couple of hours and so nice to get out.
Have a good week everyone!
