Yes, I know shouldn’t complain.
There are people out there who have lost their homes. They may have been flooded out or buried under a landslide. They may have been made homeless through war, poverty or unscrupulous greedy landlords. I know I am lucky to have a place I can call home.
But I’m still pissed off.
My fucking roof is leaking again.
Daughter’s fella Navanman did a great job months ago when we did a joint effort of covering my errant roof tank with tarpaulin and gorilla tape. I thought it was fixed as we had had rain since with no problems.
Last night the drip started again. I put down basins and hoped it would go away. This morning I discovered my basins were all full and overflowing so there was water everywhere and the bathroom was awash. FUCK!
My problem is that I can’t find a builder to fix it. I need someone who can make a permanent covering for my water tank so the job would involve carpentry, roofing and a skill at solving tricky constructions. I have lost count of the people I have contacted. Most never replied or they said they were too busy. A couple came out to look at the job. I never heard from them again. And of course, being Sunday I have to wait until tomorrow before starting another quest to find someone to help me out.
So it looks like I’ll probably spend the afternoon up on the roof again with more plastic sheeting, duct tape and a prayer.
It’s going to rain a lot next week……….
