Where does such a level of optimism come from?

Sometimes it isn’t a matter of optimism, it’s just common sense. And where does that go when you need it most?

We said to each other only the other day the leak in the glass roof had cured itself. Cured itself, note. Not that we have done something to the roof that might have cured the leak.

And then we leave a heap of clean clothes on a chair right under where the leak used to be. We don’t even go and check until the downpour has been raging for a couple of hours.

Yeah, well... it's fairly obvious where this tale is heading.  And at least the grapevine is thriving.


  1. Coo - any grapes? You can't fix the leak now, in case the grape vine dries out.

  2. No grapes yet. All that growth is this year. The vine was only planted a few months ago. We have hopes of huge bunches of grapes in a year or two. At which point, no doubt, the whole roof will fall in under the weight.
