The van with our stuff is now in Spain, and will be here tomorrow – after nearly 4 months on the air bed I can hear my bed calling to me 😂 ‘Just a bit longer, one more night and I’ll be there!’
How we get it all to the house is another thing. We are 1km down a lane out of the village but think the van could get most of the way, which would leave us about 100 meters to walk it to the house, and we have two alternatives for the driver to turn around and get back – I just hope he’s willing to go the extra mile (or kilometre) to help us, otherwise it’s going to be a very very long day tomorrow – what a way to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary!
Our first visitors are due this weekend, so we’ve been transforming the spare room for mother in law – it just needs painting now. I ordered Sandtex from the UK which worked really well in the rest of the house, but ran out so ordered some more. The paint you buy over here seems to flake really badly so we paid the extra to do the job right. Picked it up today and the tub has split, so we have a plastic bag of 10 litres of paint rather than a tub – typical! Thanks FedEx! It takes two weeks to get here from the UK so no time to order more and have it ready for this weekend – think I’ll just have to do the best with what I’ve got!
Weather is still awful, but it does make it easier to pull the weeds out! There’s always a silver lining!
