d’you know what’s a really bad, non-waterproof construction method for a roof?
answer: moss and cobwebs.
seriously. i thought only cartoons collected roof-leak drips in buckets and pans.
(i used an old bath towel and a washing up bowl which worked equally well, fyi.)
see? with a shiny new bucket, a piece of string (to direct the water down off the beams), and all of the saturated & stinking plaster neatly bagged up (along with my sense of humour) ready for the dump, it’s really quite tidy now.
all we need to do now, is save up for a new roof before we can fix the ceiling.
you know those things? off the telly? fund raising thermometers?
i made one for my fund using the rotten ceiling beams as markers
and i have coloured in all of the money we have raised so far.
