Shadow lands

The awful weather of January and February 2014 has found faults in many roofs. But actually, not ours – it hasn’t leaked at all. Our lovely clay roof tiles have been affected by time and some of our them were flaking away. Here is one of them with just a little bit of damage. Some have much more.


I had hoped I might be able to read that circular makers mark – but of course, I couldn’t.

Anyway, we had workers on the roof on the few good days and on one of them, I captured a shadow photo which I rather like.


I don’t even know his name – he’s the builder’s mate but there he is, on the scaffold, sorting ridge tiles on the hip end of the roof. I was in our kitchen at the time.

We need to hold on to those shadows, to remind us that even when we say the weather is awful, there are times when it is 100% lovely.
