What a to do that was. Part of the summer house roof blew off on Friday night. On Saturday a friend came round to help me put it back on. Two pairs of hands were needed to battle the wind. I didn't want to leave it exposed to the elements in case it rained.
Yesterday it wasn't windy, today it is windy again. The roof isn't completely waterproof because I cant reach to stick the joins together with tape. I did have a big sheet of heavy duty plastic over the whole roof, but after two years it has disintegrated.
This morning I went to see a man who makes market stall covers and suchlike. He has got just the right material to make me a bespoke piece which will cover the whole of the roof. He hasn't quite got enough of it in stock, and said he gets a delivery in about a week. In the meantime, I bought a ready made tarpaulin off him for £8. That will do the job for now. I am hoping my friend can come round and help me lay it out and fasten it down.
While I was out I picked up a load of cat food from Home Bargains. I wanted a few other bits and bobs as well. Might as well do two jobs in one.
Now it's coffee time. Toodle pip. ilona
