Gosh a rather more eventful than desirable series of events...but a very calming fireplace.

The house I grew up in occasionally had water dripping into bowls (before we repaired the roof ...slates fell off) and once we had water soaking through a wall
..which turned out to be a corroded down spout (a hidden crack on the wall side high up) with water penetrating the wall when it rained and seeping down the wall to become a damp downstairs wall. That one took a little puzzling. So best wishes on you leak hunt!

Cornflower

Funny you should mention a corroded downpipe, Val, for we have that as well! It's not related to the current water through the ceiling situation, but is ongoing - we await scaffolders and builders.

It is true that things have a tendency to come along in threes. It sounds as if your limit has been well reached. Commiserations as I have a drain problem, a dying washing machine and fridge....
What a lovely fireplace. I would be in that room seeking serenity when faced with your calamities!

Cornflower

Ah well, worse things happen at sea, but I hope your drain and appliance woes will be at an end soon, Fran.

Claire

What a lovely fireplace and how wonderful live in an old convent and have a bedroom that was a chapel. Hope your problems are continuing to resolve.

We've just had a woodburner installed in a sitting room and then lovely, helpful painters, I changed my mind about the wall colour when the room was half done... I, too, have adopted 'slightly fixed' as a useful term!

We understand the nuns' priest used to hear confession in the cupboard under the stairs!
