EEK my kitchen ceiling fell down over the weekend
 
Our kitchen ceiling fell down:msnshock: luckily no one was in the kitchen at the time. A man as just been to have a look, and i will have no kitchen for a few days:eek:, they have to pull the rest of it off, and plaster it all then we have to wait a few days until it drys then it can be painted. I have planned a big birthday party for my daughter on sunday so i am hoping i will have my kitchen back, does anyone think this will be possible.

As anyone else had this kind of experience:msnsad:

Now i am wondering if my good friends will invite us for dinner:msntongue:

Sorry to hear that Sutter.

Is it my imagination or are you one of the unluckiest people in Switzerland?

Hope the mess gets cleared soon. I'm sure you won't starve.

Doesn't this belong on the "Sutter's bizzare household appliance tales of woe" thread? It's not exactly housing-related in a way that could be of use to anyone else is it?

Cheers

Well, at least I know that it does happen in Swiss kitchens and if it ever happens to me (touch wood!), my kitchen would be out of commission for several days and we'd have a reason to eat out all the time. ;)

Wasn't your Dell laptop on the kitchen table when the roof fell in, smashing it to smithereens? ;);)

Thanks brilliant idea why didn`t i think of that would the insurance have to pay for it? I still have all the plaster in bags outside so i could make it look like it fell on the laptop:D

Hey Sutter, sorry to hear about another calamity in your house hold...

Luckily it is getting warmer these days and hopefully you can dine outside ;)

Have you tried opening free photo account at e.g. http://photobucket.com/ yet? There you can upload a photo album and give a link to your URL with any photo that you would like to be displayed on the EF.

BTW: You can resize your photos and put in form of attachments on the EF. Unfortunately I am running out of my storage space on the EF so I cannot help in here :(
