patch up

February 8, 2010

Everything seems to be falling apart chez moi. The gas bottle has run out (it's bread and cheese for dinner rather than Gordon Ramsay's homemade lasagne), the washing machine cannot be used as it releases a tsunami of soapy water over the bathroom floor, and one of the thin panes of glass in the bedroom casement window has broken. As I don't have time at the moment to sort this out properly, I've patched it up with a Jiffy envelope, which is a bit of an eyesore when Tout Sweet readers drop by to see the house and/or Biff (only two so far but it's best to be prepared!)

Even Biff has had to be patched up, as he's got a mushroom on his head (at least that's what the vet said.) It's a horrible sore that he won't stop scratching, caused by fungus in the lake where he likes to swim. Also in need of repair is the leaking garage roof: there is a river of water coming in where the woodpile would be, had I actually planned ahead and ordered some wood. (I was gambling on global warming so didn't bother this year = big mistake!)

None of this is a disaster or life threatening, of course - just the stuff of everyday life. But it could be a while before I get round to sorting it out....

Oh dear! The gas finally ran out!! Hope you've got it sorted now. Perhaps we can sort out a 'backup' solution for you at Easter.....

Sorry to hear about Biff, you did notice that sore when I visited. Do you remember I mentiones a 'cone' that can be fitted arrount the neck to stop them scratching?

Proud to have been the first reader!

A Bientot!
