My absence has been slightly longer than anticipated, owing to a bit of a domestic crisis.
When we got back from Italy on Monday night, we discovered that the water tank in our loft had overflowed, flooding much of the house (right down to the cellar) and causing the ceiling beneath the tank to collapse.
Luckily, our neighbours heard the sound of running water and managed to get into the house and turn off the water and electricity at the mains – or the damage could have been even worse. 😦 So instead of going to college yesterday I spent the day trying to clean up the mess and dealing with insurance companies, loss adjusters, plumbers, locksmiths et al.
The biggest problem is getting everything dried out, especially large items like rugs, as the weather is too wet to put them outside. Some of my fleece got wet as well, though most of it was in plastic bags.
So there’s likely to be a slight hiatus before creative activities resume. Lord knows how long it will take to redecorate. 😦
