Catastrophe strikes!!

Hi everyone
Just to let you know that I am having one of those weeks when you just say to yourself "nothing else could possibly go wrong" when it does!! To cut a long story short I have a loft conversion which one of the 2 rooms is my craft room and the roof was leaking well it turns out that all 3 flat roofs of the dorma windows needed replacing at a cost that seriously impacts on your crafting budget!! Once over that shock work commenced and on day one didn't they go and put their foot right through the roof that they told me was rotten??? That is the ceiling to my craft room. 

Well what a mess that has made!! So now I need the thing repairing and plastering. So I have had to empty one half of the room for them to get at it. Needless to say all creative activities have gone on hold. Then it will need painting which I have to say is long over due I kept putting it off, for obvious reasons, but this little mishap will force me to do it.
So this post is to just share my pain and to say I will be back soon!!

  7. Oh no, what a nightmare... Glad neither you nor anything else got damaged in the fallout. Good luck with the repairs and redecorating, and with the withdrawal symptoms!

  8. Argghhhhh! You have my commiseration, if the damage wasn't bad enough the thought of no crafting for a while is equally as bad! Good luck Amanda, I hope it all goes as quickly as it can. Chris xxx

  13. Thank you for your visit and comment - do hope things are on their way back to normality, and that you'll be able to get at your craft desk again soon.

  14. I'm impressed, I have to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that's both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the difficulty is something that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very comfortable that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  15. Oh my word! Sorry, I haven't had much time for visiting blogland lately, hence late response. But putting a foot through your craft room ceiling!!! WOW! That guy wouldn't have lived to tell the tale if it had been my craft room ceiling!! I could see how you had to clear your room. You wouldn't have wanted those clumpy men boots trampsing over it.


Thankyou for taking the time to leave me a comment, I really appreciate it.
