Counting the cost of waste

There are all kinds of hidden expenses to running the Happy House.
Maintaining the building, protecting it from the intense sunshine, high humidity, or heavy rains,  is a constant task.
There is always something that needs painting, repairing or, as last resort, replacing!
And then there are the more unpalatable, and costly, jobs to be done. As there is not the luxury of mains sewerage, we have four cesspits which need to be regularly emptied and this has just been done ... bringing with it a bill of £680!
It is an expense we could do without, but so necessary and as we always bargain the best price for the best job, we just have to pay up and bear it.
What's cooking
