Our DYi Experience

img_7151Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Like our good friend Easy’s daddy, our daddy is not one of  bestest DIYer in the world.  However, we seem to have been effected by the 7.8m earthquake of last week.  As of yesterday there have been over 3,000 aftershocks.  Fortunately none have seemed to have caused any more damage. However, on Wednesday mummy and daddy noticed that there was water  trickling down the path towards the woolshed.  At first they couldn’t see or feel any damp grass but as the days progressed they realised that there was the strong possibility of there being a leak.  So today daddy got out his tools and went to work.  As you see from the photos there was lots of bad language, water and mud but in the end there was success and the leak was fixed.  It would appear that the pipe joint had split, maybe due to the earthquake. We are all so proud of daddy getting muddy and fixing our plumbing problem.   Love the three bestest maremmas in all the land.

    Besides getting filthy and saying curses, you daddy is a little different from Easy’s daddy. There were no explosions, no fires, no bloodshed, and no visits to the hospital. Well done.

    Love and licks,

    Reblogged this on The Woolshed Wargamer and commented:
    Our only damage from the Earthquake at the Woolshed. Apart from a few stacks of books and some stuff on my workbench that tumbled over. All models came through unscathed.
