Well no, the name’s not Billy (fortunately) but I have been a tad remiss about updating the blog.
Alert visitors to this blog will have noticed a dearth of articles of late. Fear not dear reader. I have not deserted you, fallen amongst scoundrels or down a deep hole. The fault is on my side – do not adjust your computer.
The truth of the matter is Mrs Chips and yours truly have been experiencing an increasing level of concern over our rented house. Despite drawing the issues to their attention over a period of some years; the owners, for some reason, seem quite satisfied to allow the place fo fall into wrack and ruin.
We began to tire of the novelty of moving furniture and valuables every time it rained, to protect them from the water running through the leaky roof. Things came to an unpleasant head when supporting walls cracked and mushrooms began growing out of the wall in the spare bedroom (I’m not exaggerating – pictures will be posted in future articles)
These incidents and the refusal on the part of the owners to resolve the matters precipitated the decision to move on.
In posts to come, you can experience some of our trials, tribulations and happy experiences as we release the next version of The Groot Trek.
