I like mushrooms...

24/May/2006

... but not when they're growing out of the kitchen wall.

We noticed it when we got back to the house on sunday. All the rain over the weekend had led to water seeping through a crack in the kitchen wall. There was a piece of mushroom/fungus growing out of one area. Yesterday I phoned the letting agents to report it. This morning someone came round to take a look. Hopefully it won't take too long before someone comes back to fix it.
