Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

It had been raining heavily and because the ground in Woodstock contains a lot of clay, our foundation filled with water like a moat around a castle.

Heavy rains caused our new foundation trenches to fill up like a moat around a castle.

The South-Easter, Cape Town’s (in)famous wind, hauled this past weekend with rain pouring down like out of buckets, causing our flat to flood. Or, as I try to euphemise it: Adorning our living room wall with a water feature… 😉

A similar sight greeted us on site, where the rain had accumulated in the trenches and wouldn’t drain off thanks to the high amount of clay in the ground.

This somewhat turned our construction site into an adventure play ground or a giant sand castle, including moat and all.

You can see, walking across the trenches over the planks turned into a bit of a tricky but also fun thing to do: 😉
