Things Fall Apart

We arrived home to find there were now two skips outside the front door- one full, one half-full- and next door's roof no longer had a chimney. I'll miss that chimney. It was gothic and imposing. I used to like watching the moon and stars move past it when I went to the bathroom at night.

The following morning part of our kitchen ceiling collapsed and I was grateful for the extra skip.

At first I thought the collapsing ceiling was a consequence of the problems we've been having with water penetration from outside, but, having looked more closely, I think there's a leak I didn't know about in the bathroom directly above. Heigh-ho. Either way I'm not particularly worried. We already have a scheme going forward to take the kitchen apart and start again- and our insurers have been informed.
