And though I’ve been reading and commenting on blogs, I realise I haven’t written one for a while.
Melbourne has been experiencing some fairly heavy rain in the past week or so (thankfully it seems to have eased now). We have sustained some damage, related to, but not caused by rain. Our carport roof is fitted with plasterboard like a normal indoor ceiling – (I’m not sure this is good building practice but that’s the way it is round here). Last Friday, half of the carport roof collapsed (mid rainstorm), onto our cars, damaging the bonnets of both and leaving a large gaping hole in the carport (it would now make a perfect pigeon loft).
Damage to both cars is fairly minimal in that they are both drivable, but they are no longer pristine as they were. Insurance claims have been filed with us being told we won’t be covered for the damage to the carport roof as it is general wear and tear! There was no water in the roof.
So that is one thing, and the aftermath of having cars repaired and getting quotes for repairs to carport are underway.
Hospital visits and an unsuspected surgery for my better half have taken up the rest of the weeks events. I am pleased to say that he is feeling a lot more chipper and results are good.
I love that line in the John Lennon song, “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans” or words to that effect. Never a truer word was spoken.
There has been no decorating for Christmas or Christmas Shopping apart from online stuff. Thankfully Christmas cards have been made and sent. Hopefully, we will now be able to get back on the horse and begin ‘tentatively’ planning our way through the Christmas season.
Dinner out this evening with friends is a good start.
Bless this Day.
