The land of leaks

Maybe we should have anticipated this having done our training in Wales (the land of leeks) but today Cambodia may have taken its title - albeit with a different spelling.

Tonight we have come home to discover that our house is not only nurturing and developing its existing leaks but it is also growing some more.

We now have the joy of having one directly above our bed.  Our mattress and bedding is now soaking which was the straw which broke the Hamill's back (and, by back, I mean temper).  Jonny had a frank dialogue with the landlady in "Khem-english" - 80% of which we reckon was understood.  The result of this conversation is that tomorrow we have workmen coming to replace the roof in its entirety (as opposed to the many repair / patch up jobs done to date).  We won't hold our breath that this will happen tomorrow but hopefully it will happen this week.

We live in hope...
