I'm Definitely Home

See this? It's the harbour in Victoria BC. Note the blue sky? The sun? The general calmness? Don't you wish you were there? Well, I've just returned from 5 glorious days there. Days filled with long drives, good wine, museums and a bit of romance.
Last night I returned home to frigid Toronto to discover an apartment with no heat, burst rad pipes and black water all over the carpets. It was a balmy 53 degrees in my bedroom last night. That's with a space heater running!
It's not all gloom and doom. Our possessions are all fine and I've a wonderful landlord who is on the case. There are huge holes in my drywall but now the heat is partially restored. Still...Damn. Damn.

Oh no! Not a nice way to come back from a lovely trip. And it does sound like it was a nice trip, too :) Let me know if you need a warm place to crash or even take a hot shower, we aren't that far away and Adam is here a lot of the time, even if I'm not.

You were on my end of the coast...it was a beautiful last few days.

Glad you had a great time and hang tight, just life's little way of keeping us on the edge of our seats with a burst pipe.

E-gads! I hope you have insurance and that nothing else was really damaged... I know I'd be royally screwed if that ever happened to me! Everything here touches the floor!
