The sun has been shining

 

The sun has been shining

It’s been a little while since we last communicated, but that’s mainly because we haven’t had a lot new to report.

The weather has continued to be very strange here. After weeks of unseasonably hot weather and no snow, we suddenly had a hurricane. A lot of people had some kind of roof damage, but when we checked ours, it looked fine.

Actually though it wasn’t fine. A week later we discovered that a single glass tile had blown out of the roof. Probably I didn’t notice it was missing as it was a glass one.

Anyway, for the week after the hurricane we got proper winter weather including a lot of snow. But it wasn’t until the snow melted this week that water started pouring in through the roof and we noticed that we had a problem. Not really a major drama, but we’ll have to re-paint the ceiling in the living room (which is a pity as we had only just painted it).

Other than that, we have been slowly working on the house. Painting, decorating, installing new light fittings and curtains etc. We’re actually even managed to nearly complete one room (the study). Which now only needs new carpet and a door handle before we can officially call it “finished”

We’ve been having a few parties as well, including a big dinner party where we pressed into service almost every single wedding present we have. The table looked fantastic with beautiful tale cloth, table mats, knives, forks, glasses, decanters, serving bowls, etc. The only things that were missing were chairs (we didn’t really have enough) and plates. A trip to IKEA might be in order soon.
