Tonight was the Guardaria (nursery class) Christmas performance. It was a great night and Eileen was happy with how it all went. Our Hannah is in the centre.

House update

Dear all,

Just a quick update on the house. It has continued to leak very badly, the landlady is uninterested in repairing it, so we are right now in the process of moving back to the school flat that we vacated only 6 weeks ago. So this will be the third move in 3 months. School is looking for another house for us, but it is an expensive area and not a lot of movement in rented houses. Unless a house is found probably within a couple of weeks we will be spending Christmas and until Feb in the flat in school.

We are a little down about it all, but trying very hard to look on the positive side – perhaps God has the perfect house just waiting for us, and if we are to stay in the school flat then the kids will have a big playground! Please pray for a quick and perfect solution, we sense that the kids are…

A heavy thunder storm had started a few minutes earlier and we had a leak.

We moved the bed and furniture to avoid it getting soaked and a few moments afterwards in the kitchen a large part of plaster crashed to the floor and left the roof exposed to more of the flood. In the bathroom water started to pour down from the light fitting like someone had left a tap running. It began pooling on the floors and we mopped up as more poured in soaking almost entire ceilings and making them dangerously ready to collapse. At the moment all the furniture in the living room is covered with plastic in case the plaster board it caves in.This problem has occurred because of a botched repair in July-Se…
