It’s been a week since the last post, so I thought a little update was in order. I couldn’t leave that last post at the top for too long. I just re-read it, and even I’m taken aback by parts of the story. I’m glad I wrote it while it was still fresh in my memory. A week seems like a long time ago, and with everyday bringing it’s own challenges, focus has shifted from the event to restoration.
I’m back at work, so it feels like things are moving forward. Last Friday, my boyfriend made a bridge out of posts and railway sleepers, so we could drive up to the farm house. When I saw it for the first time I was amazed – it looked wonderful! It was a make-do bridge and it served it’s purpose for five days, before the next deluge washed it away. It also left two vehicles on the wrong side of the crossing, and only one on the getaway side. It was decided that I should go to work while the other stayed home. Just some more challenges to deal with.
All in all, we’re all moving on. We still have our sense of humour. We help each other when we’re down. Thanks to everyone for your wonderful words. They have been a great help for me.
