Where Was The Body Hidden?

Richard and the girls picked me up at the airport, and we travelled home - chatting and catching up on the news all the way.

As we parked in the village and started to walk up the hill to our front door, I heard the girls whisper to Richard 'You have told her, right?'

What?! I was heard to ask.....

......and as we turned the corner I saw, outside our house:
We have suspected that our shower has been leaking for quite a while but it was not obvious where and how much.

Until I was away, and Richard went into the cave underneath and noticed black mould growing on the stone walls. So in the bathroon he took out the shower tray to see what was the problem. And he started to dig, and dig, and dig.....

200 kilos of sand later and he came across the rocks that had been supporting the shower tray.....in fact about 200 kilos of rock as well! Finally he reached the villa flooring - about two feet below the level of the original shower tray!We are now trying to decide what on earth to do in the bathroom. So watch this space for further episodes of this saga....

PS
The cat was nearly executed by Richard.
She thought Richard had found her the biggest, most salubrious litter tray in the world!

Oh dear! We had a saga of a shower room leak a couple of years ago, and so feel for you! Good luck! xx

That looks like a dead bat! Tell me it's not!

Glad you're back. Have been enjoying the posts about LeeLee's application to uni, but it all seems so complicated. I am filled with admiration that you understand the 2 systems. It was simpler in my day and even when my kids all applied. Best of luck to her anyway. Jan

Jan - it's a shovel photographed from an odd angle.....unless using a dead bat is why it took Richard so long to dig it all out!

Lesley - think ours will take as long, if not longer, to sort out. We keep changing our minds about where to put the shower, toilet, washbasin, etc.....
