Some thing must be taken care of even if the panic is lurking in the background :-)
My legs still feel wobbly and I will most likely have a worried stomach for the rest of the day, but now I finally took care of the problem. The problem with those sliding tiles on the top of the roof. I realised that I must do something before the snow starts to fall or even if more rain would come, the roof will be destroyed otherwise. So I´ve been thinking of this since they slid down earlier and the panic has been just around the corner only thinking of it 🙂 🙂 🙂
We had quite a lovely morning with fog and sunshine but as soon as we came home thick fog came and blocked the light from reaching my cottage. I started to prepare for the job with a hammer, nails and a safety line and as soon as the sun showed up again I grabbed the ladder and walked upon the roof. The cows in the pasture beside my cottage all started to shout loudly when they saw me up there and I could hear that they were betting on when I would fall down or at least slide down as far as the safety line allowed me.
I’m pretty sure som of them shouted JUMP as well 🙂 🙂 It’s funny but a safety line doesn’t make me feel safer at all 🙂 So I pushed up some tiles so I had somewhere to put my feet and leaned over the roof to the other side. My worst fear was that I would drop those tiles that I was going to put in the right place but that was the least problem I had to be honest. Everything worked fine and I realised that I must do something about my roof in the coming years.
I even managed to put them back without any bigger problems. But I did have lots of problems getting those tiles I pushed up back in to place again! It took me five minutes to pull down the two farthest away but the closest one just didn’t want to get down to the right place at all! It was stuck as if it was glued in that position I had placed it in! I had been trying for over ten minutes when I realized what was wrong.
It was the roof ladder that pressed down the tile next to it that made it impossible to get it down again. So I sort of had to lean in the opposite direction at the same time I had to reach the tile and pull it down. Not easy if You are calm and especially difficult when panic is the closest neighbor 🙂 🙂 🙂 But I finally made it and I could hear a sigh of dissatisfaction from all the cows in the pasture 🙂 🙂
But now its done and it will hold through the winter, but I really need to do something within the two or three years to come so it wouldn’t feel wrong if I won those lottery millions this winter 🙂 🙂 🙂 Now I feel that I’ve done more than can be expected by a human being for one day, so from now on I won’t do a single useful thing 🙂 Just walk with my dogs, relax and feeling happy I’m back on the ground again 🙂
Have a great day!
