Since our return from Florence, things have crowded in from all directions and I have got lamentably out of the way of adding titbits to this blog. I will indeed try to do better!

One of the many things that happened was the eventual realization that our roof needed dealing with to mend leaks and prevent almost-leaks from breaking through.

The ‘crawling over the roof’ event took most of a week and involved much ‘change’ to our daily round. One could almost forget what was happening but then be suddenly faced with a rather disturbing vision such as this!

I do not, I confess, enjoy invasions like this. Robin Tanner was very much the same. On such occasions he would announce that he was suffering from “men-in-itis”.
