We've been living in a building site for the past month and a half. It it's not one thing, it's another. First the courtyard was collapsing, then the roof was leaking, then the toilet blew up... this house has incurred a long list of wounds over the past few years.
But now, finally, things are coming right. Hopefully the biggest and most destructive work is done for the time being.
The dust is settling, and now we can clean up the detritus, pour a glass of wine, and put our feet up.
