26th October FONTE DOS CLERIGOS


HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY Lawrence!!

Wow what a horrendous night; we had torrential rain, at least 2” in eight hours. Brett is now busily working out where he’s got to dig ditches. The studio/gym shed has leaked but we’re not too worried as it has still got to be rendered on the outside and the ditch Brett dug will be concreted; the bedroom shed seems to be completely dry and the kitchen only has a little seepage along the back wall, which again can be fixed.

We didn’t get a lot done this morning, as it was still raining; but this afternoon there was blue sky so we decided to hang our gates. It took quite a while to transport everything, tools, generator, gates etc. We got one hole drilled out for a hinge and the heavens opened and we got absolutely drenched and that was the end of that little venture. It continued to rain for the rest of the day and we are starting to get ‘stir crazy’ being in the camper continuously.

But on a good note our wells are filling up pretty rapidly!
And so is the river, which was completely dry a couple of weeks ago!
