Cleaning Day!

We had an early start, as the telephone company rang last night to say they would be at the apartment any time from 7.20am, and sure enough, as we walked up to the entrance gate, they pulled up behind us. The line was checked, and found to be in order, so we were given a number, Marcela signed the contract, because until I receive my Foreigners residency card, I can not sign for anything! We we then told that the line would be activated shortly afterwards, which it was.

Having had a closer look around the apartment we had found that it had only been given a quick once over, even though four people had been there all day. So armed with rubber gloves, and plenty of cleaning powder, which I can only describe as being the same as Vim, for those of you old enough to remember it! we set about scrubbing the place.

We then had to stop, as the sofa unit and bed arrived, and again later when the fridgefreezer arrived, we then went home for lunch, returning to start again, this time helped by Maria, who had returned from her work.
We packed up just after 6.30pm, and I was whacked, there is only a little bit left to do, I will finish that in the morning whilst Marcela is at a business meeting, I have got to be there to accept the washing machine, and then on Friday, hopefully the internet will be turned on, and we will move in.
