I finally managed to clean up the mess in the bathroom. While I was in the Netherlands and Alison was in the U.S. the pipes of the upstairs neighbour thought it was a fun idea to break. It wasn’t a pretty sight according to Alison. She cleaned it up but it took a long time before the owner went in to fix the pipes. In the meantime our neighbour, who just moved in, had no water. Half the roof of our bathroom had to be removed and also the walls need to be repaired. I’ve no idea when that’s going to happen. The damage in the basement, where all the water eventually ended up, was luckily not very big because nothing valuable was stored underneath the bathroom.
I’m still not recovered from the usual depression that comes with my jet-lag. It takes much longer and is much more severe than usual.
