I am pissed off.
This seems to be happening far more often these days. I don’t now if it’s a function of age, or is the world just conspiring against me?
I have lost count of the number of builders, roofers and handymen I have contacted about my leaking roof. I started locally and had to spread my net a good deal further and the story varies but the result is always the same. Some ignore me. One asked for photographs. Some have come out and I have shown them in detail what’s required. The last lot in every case said they could do the job, no problem, but they’d have to work out a quote and would text or email me. That is the last I have heard of any of them. No one single shit has got back to me.
So my roof continues to leak. The bathroom continues in its quest to become a wet-room.
Even the fucking weather is in on the conspiracy. It rained torrents yesterday. That’s the third storm in lest than a week, and there’s a load more lining up in the Atlantic determined to drive me nuts.
Every time a storm passes over I have to lay out the saucepans, basins and buckets to catch the water. Then I have to remember to empty them periodically.
So I’m pissed off. And the ceiling is starting to sag.
I’m off now to try out yet another temporary repair.
Wish me luck.
