Oops, life just got "interesting" again!

Well, we've had a busy few weeks since I last posted anything here. Work has started on fixing our roof, but then the rain came back, so nothing done for about 10 days. Summer re-arrived today though, so let's hope Herby makes it back next week!

We thought we might barbecue some lamb kebabs this evening, so spent most of the afternoon trying to buy a barbie. We went to B and Q first, but no luck - they seemed to mostly have gas barbies or really cheap and tinny ones. So we went on to our local garden centre, but they suggested the Woolton Garden Centre on Gateacre Road... No luck there either. So finally we thought we'd try Homebase at the Edge Lane Retail Park, and finally got lucky. No online picture, but it's a little cast iron pot-bellied barbie like the ones we have at Abersoch.


We got home to find a large chunk of our kitchen ceiling has fallen down!

John has now taken down the kinda loose stuff around the hole, and hopefully no more will fall down over the next few days. We've been in touch with our Insurance Company, and they will phone on Monday to arrange for an Assessor to come and see things - I took plenty of photos before John brought more of the ceiling down to make it safe. We're both too knackered to do a barbie tonight now - maybe tomorrow!
