Par Toutatis, le ciel va nous tomber sur la tête !

Once again we have been experiencing leaking ceilings in our new/old mews. Whenever it rains I am reminded of a popular Astérix and Obélix saying, “Par Toutatis, le ciel va nous tomber sur la tête !”

This morning our favorite Polish contractor, Bart, is here to prep for the work our land lady has agreed to go ahead with. Scaffolding is going up tomorrow morning. With the help of Bart and his crew we are getting a new roof, the workers will deal with the leaky hollow chimney, (apparently that’s where the water is coming in) and the entire exterior of the mews is getting painted.

I will be sure to post some scaffolding pictures tomorrow. Scaffolding in UK is old school. I am also hoping to get on the roof  ceiling leak

These water stains are getting bigger.

in order to see what’s up there. In the end, when all is set and done, I am hoping I will no longer have to say “Par Toutatis, le ciel va nous tomber sur la tête !”

We’ll see…
