(Un)-happiness is…

(Un)-happiness is…

Oh, the horror…

We are living in the Twilight Zone (possibly reality is actually worse…), all is a mess, and home has become uninhabitable (in parts 🙂 )
Our renovations started last week, and initially we decided to do some small mainly aesthetic changes, but now we are in the throes of a full scale upheaval!
The entire roof is coming off and the lounge is being re-plastered and the floors sanded…


I have tried (with great deals of digging deep within my reserves, I might add), to be brave, calm, optimistic etc, but this week sorely tried my Herculean efforts…

I was sorting out bed linen (all pastels and white I might add), when an unimaginable noise, accompanied by screaming assailed my ears…milliseconds later, I (and needless to say, the immediate environment around me), was overtaken by a volcano sized spewing of dust, soot and goodness only know what (I tell you….if we do not all demise from the plague, after inhaling all that which lived in the roof of our house…it will be a miracle).


As can be seen in the pic above (post event evidence….after a full day of repairs being carried out), one of the workers fell through the ceiling, the poor thing…in the process grabbing onto the copper piping in the roof, to break his fall, opening up the plumbing and drenching the floor (and the items in the room , which sadly included a lot of perishables, like books…).


When I looked up from the swirling dust, the poor man was swinging from the copper pipe, water and dust raining down in what surely must be an approximation of the Chicxulub Event…
I was speechless…

So, an emergency call to a plumber, and a day later, you have what is seen above…

I kept telling myself, that this too will end, and that I must be brave and determined…(it didn’t work…)

Thankfully, after a bit of a chat with Mr P. (who is a veritable fount of strength in these situations), I felt better, and (dare I say it?), even could smile a little about the incident.
It must be said that this is the second man to have fallen through the ceiling…I shall spare you the details of the previous victim’s accident…suffice to say, it was caused by a great deal of stupidity and he was not hurt…

The one thing I am very excited about: the decorating that will follow ♥

I will post pics as the scene unfolds…

I hope to have a tutorial for you all tomorrow…how to crochet a Log Cabin Square!

Have a wonderful evening,
Lots of Love
Heidi 🙂
