If you are a regular here you will be aware of the goings on in my life over the past two weeks; about the lightning striking an outside pole, the power failure for three days, my laptop crashing, the extreme slowness of my old laptop.
Yesterday, I was able to get online with the laptop manufacturer who helped restore my laptop, it took about an hour and a half. When I had eventually fixed my laptop successfully with their help, I heaved a happy sigh of relief. I was quite proud of myself as I did not even lose a single photo.
So, after all this was done I walked down the passage as I thought a cup of coffee would be in order. Some dark spots on the ceiling caught my attention, and I wondered who did what. It happened once before that someone opened a coke which was full of gas and it all squirted on the ceiling, making it full of brown marks. These marks looked the same, so I thought one of the children may have an idea what happened there.
I made my coffee and on my way back to the study, I noticed that the ceiling seemed to be bowing a little and the marks seemed more somehow… Looking up at the ceiling, hands is the air, I said to the ceiling “No! Surely thou doth jest!” the ceiling replied with a drop of water landing on my face.
Yep, the geyser burst! Cold shower this morning! eeek!
BTW, ceilings like being spoken to in old English.
PS: The picture of the Lavender is there to make me feel better.
