I was up in the attic today an I put my foot right through the ceiling below. Forunately it was the ceiling of the built in cupboard in my bedroom, so like the least disatrous place that could have happened, but now my room is full of broken bits of plaster, I've had to empty my cupboard to climb in and tack the plasterboard back to the beam, I've had endless showers of plaster dust and general attic dust shower down into my face... not going to lie, the whole thing kind of sucked.

it was just the biggest oof. I've cheered myself up by buying some clothes, questionable as to whether I deserve that after wrecking the whole house, but what can you do?

here is a picture of the ceiling in my cupboard now

the nail that's not in all the way is one I tried to whack the plasterboard back in place with, don't have the strength to get it all the way in so you can see there I also added like a million panel pins, hopefully that holds it all in place, not sure what to do about all the plaster, it's just gathered in a box, it's broken into a whole lot of little pieces.

no, unfortunately a nicer dress took my eye, so purple dress has been relegated to the "maybe next month" pile.

I did wear a purple dress today though, like it was a different purple dress, but it maybe still counts.

I think that probably counts. Purple’s a nice colour. I hope it didn’t get dusty from DA R O O F

It got a little bit dusty. I had a doctor's appointment I had to rush off to and when I was there I noticed I still had a lot of plaster dust on me. I think I got it all brushed off in the end though.

Deborah J DIY Superstar. Like Sarah Beeny, but without the sledgehammer. :P But yeah big oof, sounds like a nasty thing to happen.

And I think we can all agree that wrecking ceiling = gratuitous purchasing, it's only natural.

Aw, that’s sad.
