The downs first. Had an email from my friend who has been checking our house while we're away to say that a water pipe in our attic has burst and has gone through the ceiling, saturating my son's bedroom. She says it is a mess, we will need new bedding, carpet, possibly a new ceiling, so that has dampened (pardon the pun) our holiday somewhat. We have had to organise someone to strip out the carpet to stop rot while we are away- what a pain, not looking forward to going home to the mess at all.
The up is that the weather is fab,the views are out of this world and despite the news I am feeling very relaxed. hope to post some pics soon.
