Renovation project - Home alone again!

Renovation project - Home alone again!

We are a little bit stressed at the moment, with selling the house, working and everything else, when we get an e-mail we really don't need.

The property we still have in the UK that is rented out, sent us an e-mail to let us know the roof is leaking again, this is a problem that has been sorted out many times, from 7 years ago when part of the roof was replaced to the 2 times we have arranged for roofers to go out and fix it afterwards, why didn't I know John when it first need fixing????

We talk about it and decide we do not want to get another roofer to go to it as we do not know anybody we can trust.

There is nothing for it other than John to go back to the UK and fix it, the timing could not be worse.

He is going to be gone for 6 days, but at least we know that the roof will be fixed for good.

This means that  I am left home alone, to deal with the sale and run the B&B, because of course we have somebody booked in for the week, this also means that I will not get to go back and see the baby or my daughter, but there is nothing that can be done.

The day before he leaves I am getting the rooms ready and John spends ages hiding in the shed, I am getting a little more narked by the second, until I finally shout what the hell are you doing, it is at this point I find out he has chopped enough wood to last me the week, do I feel like a bt of a bitch at the moment? Yes!!!!

John heads off for the port and I am home alone, I know those scary owls will be back again, but at least the house will not be empty.

Whislt John is n the UK, my dad becomes very ill, I am so relieved he is over there as he spends the day with my daughter ad helps out no end this is one of those moments where you are sat in another country feeling totally useless but at least John is there.

All is well and my dad is not kept in hospital. John fixes the roof and has some quality time with the family.

My guest is lovely and I am not lonely, even the scary owl stayed away!

  1. What a week for you. I hope that John has sorted the roof for good. We're following my Mother-in-law's progress through various hospitals at the moment from here. I's not easy, but at least we can phone her. Glad to hear that your dad is better now.
