This year is the 100 year jubilee of Estonian independence, and today just so happens to be the actual party day – “Head iseseisvuspäeva!”
I got out of bed at around 9:45, walked into the kitchen where I was greeted by a waterfall flowing down from our ceiling (through the lamp to be more precise).
After a couple of phone calls and knocking on doors we finally got the “sort of head of the apartment complex” to keep more water from emerging, but the waterfall was (and is) still present, but has now calmed down to a drip-drop-drip-drop.
This couldn’t have happened at a worse time; no firm that could otherwise have come to dry up the mess is open, our landlord is bedridden…
Actually, the only time worse than today would be during summer, because God knows what might have happened had we not been home (this happened once before we lived here; the ceiling had come down during summer and no one had noticed, the floor had to be redone, it was an all-around mess!)
Despite this today has turned out to be a pretty okay independence day (much thanks to the lovely horses at Ado (especially my dear Adorette) and a pretty successful riding lesson). Now it’s back to the books and studying, but not for long 😉
