Managing The Situation

We have an agency carer coming in regularly now- five mornings a week with someone else- usually the boss- covering for her days off. She's called Kirstie. We like her. She was born in Glasgow but raised in Kent and the one accent laid over the other has given her what sounds like a West Country burr. My mother was telling her about her racehorse this morning- only she couldn't remember its name.

Che has fixed the chimney, but one thing leads to another and there turn out to be at least three more leaks that need patching.  I discovered one of them myself yesterday (see earlier post). Another is caused by one of the ridge tiles turning to powder. "What you really need", says Che, "is a new roof. But that's silly money."
