|Cracks appeared years ago|
Now that the house is getting a new coat of paint, more attention was given to the north and east walls of the house. In preparing the wall where our bedroom window is, a great chunk of the render came off and crashed to the ground, shattering as it fell. The hole that was made by the falling bit of render gave us a view to what was really happening. You could fit your hand between the wall and the render. As it is supposed to stick to the brick, this is not good.

To add insult to injury and salt to the wound, some friends who work at a dive centre in Egypt have posted this photo. It was taken on the south platform of Elphinstone reef - where we were last year.
I love our house and I do not really begrudge repairing it. I am just sad that the plans we were starting to make have to be stopped.
