Big Drip!

I've just spent 7 days in Lanzarote with my family, it was Rachel, James and Becky's first visit, we had a lovely relaxing break lots of sun. On this visit to the island we went to The Caves of Los Verdes, last time we went to the rim of the volcano this time we went under the volcano, brilliant textures, I took lots of images, what I'll do with them I've no idea! 

We all went for lunch in Puerto Calero.

Wall Art in Puerto Calero

Not Lunch
There was lots of reading, 

I also read 'Never Let Me Go' by Kazuo Ishiguro, I've still got lots of summer reads left!

When we arrived home there was a flying ants nest in the dinning room, lovely start! Wait it gets worse........At 4am I got out of bed it was raining, don't switch off yet...........
I heard a dripping coming from the spare bedroom (my workroom), stupidly I switched on the light water was pouring from the fitting onto the carpet. A shout (more of a scream) to Dave and we quickly removed 3 sewing machines and anything else that we could, then it was hunting for plastic sheets in the shed to cover up the rest of the 'stuff'. Apparently a tile has slipped and water managed to get through, damage has been done, the ceiling in the room has cracked and needs to come down and the room will have to be cleared out. Welcome Home........... I'm just so glad we only went away for one week what would have happened if we'd gone for two?


  1. No damage to any of your work I hope.

  2. No! Luckily there was no damage, if it had been much longer who knows what could have happened.

  3. Glad you had a good holiday!
    You'll need another now, tell Dave, to get over the trauma of the ants and the intense dripping!
    Well, you have got more reading matter to get through!
