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.

Monday morning

And it’s a wet one!!

Jeesh … it’s been raining non stop in Cape Town for days now and we’ve had some nasty storm activity in that time too – real wild and woolly weather!

I contacted my Dad this morning to see if he was ok. He lives in a caravan and I get really worried about him when the weather’s this bad. Luckily, all is cool with him – no more lightening strikes this time thank goodness. A short while ago, in another bad storm, some of his equipment got fried!!

Here at home, the animals have been going mental with all the thunder and lightening. Shame, poor things …

And my garden is now one big mooshy mess. Urgh.

I’ve got a leak in my roof too, which is baaaaaaad news. I had the same thing last year and it got so bad, there was so much water damage, I had to have my ceilings replaced and fixed up. I’ve been trying to get hold of the roofing company for 2 weeks now to come back and sort out the leak but they just never return my calls. Dammit.

And now I’ve also got water seeping through my window frames too. *Sigh* … it never ends does it?

I have no idea who to call about the windows – any ideas?
