There is always someone off worse than you!

Two weeks ago we made the decision to replace the awning roof after four plus years of it being a permanent canvas roof.  It was well weathered and now raining on the inside.

The whole awning had to be dismantled and therefore stuff stored somewhere in the interim.  Accepting a quote from the place that constructed it, one forgot to confirm on the Friday of the same week!

That night, it pissed down!  I hadn’t covered the awning floor totally meaning as I lay there, I just had to roll over and accept the floor will eventually dry out and well, it couldn’t get any worse

Dropping the canvas into the place on the Monday, they advised that it would take a week for new canvas to be ordered and then a week for it to be manufactured meaning a possible two weeks without an awning!  I had to depart accepting the reality of caravan open nakedness and well, it couldn’t get any worse!

But alas, there is always someone worse off than me.

BClaire has to walk further to the ablutions on mornings like this.  Where one has a grin, the other has a grimace.

Surely it can’t get any worse it being snow season and all!
