And it’s STILL pissing down outside!

This is some seriaaaas weather we’re having here in the Cape … non-stop wild storming for 7 days and near-Arctic temperatures. Winter is not my season anyway, so you can just imagine how much I’m loving this. Not.

Two days ago my garden was a big mooshy mess, now it’s totally flooded! And my swimming pool looks like it’s on the verge of overflowing too. Yikes.

Worst of all, I have MORE leaks in my roof, and the drips are coming down a lot faster and harder than before. I’ve called the roofing chaps again this morning, left YET ANOTHER MESSAGE … Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Well, I’ve had a very late start to the day – I just couldn’t get out of bed this morning! Cold + Dark + Wet + Windy + Too Early + Head Pain + Sleeping Pill Hangover = Stay Under The Covers Girl.

Anyway, enough griping =) Today I have a stupid amount of work to do, so I’d better get started *yawn*. I think I’ll have to end my coffee drought just now and give in to a big caffeine fix.

I survived the weekend

Just. Yesterday was touch and go though ….

Sir G managed to squeeze his car out of the driveway yesterday and went off to have a family lunch at Lanzerac. I was left here to starve and freeze! Hrmph. He then sent me messages about how much sushi and smoked salmon he was consuming. Bastard.

I was just about ready to concede my sorry self to hypothermia and starvation. (Jeeesh, is it just me or this Cape winter a whole lot colder than usual??) Luckily, he arrived back here just in the nick of time with a load of wood and some of his dad’s yummy home-made curry. Whew, close one.

How was that Euro 2008 final last night?! Awesome game. I’m so glad it turned out to be such a good match and of course, the fact that my boy Torres scored just totally made it for me =)

So the gate guys came this morning to take the gate away for repairs. They say they’ll have it back and sorted before the end of the day. Holding thumbs … I haven’t been able to leave the house for nearly a week now and I’m seriously claustrophobic!
