I knew it was a gamble, but true to form, we didn\’t just have gentle rain last night, we had a full blown tropical storm, and when I went out this morning, I was greeted with this. Thank goodness I had tied the concrete blocks to the balustrade, and we were lucky that the centralContinue reading “Disaster!”

A Working Day!
Yesterday was written off, Marcela had a medical appointment on the other side of Medellin, mid morning, and being the first with this Specialist, I went for moral support, I was beginning to think she had been admitted, she was in so long. We then headed back to Niquia for lunch, before she went toContinue reading “A Working Day!”
Let There be Light
We had two garden \’street lights\’ alongside the swimming pool, each took two bulbs, and one had gone out in each, I thought it was just the bulb, but it turned out that it was the fitting and wiring. I had no idea how old they were, but the bases of each post had beenContinue reading “Let There be Light”
The Acid Test
This morning it was time to tackle the balustrade surrounding the pool, this has caused a great deal of frustration. When we first had it installed we spent ages painting it, and it looked lovely, but at with all things painted and especially white, in time, it looked grubby. I have painted the handrail twiceContinue reading “The Acid Test”

So yesterday I painted the balustrades around the pool, they desperately needed doing, I had been putting it off time and again. Fortunately because I started early it was not too hot, and after a couple of hours and aContinue reading “Painting!”
Happy Birthday Brother
Before I forget, I will just wish my Brother David a very Happy Birthday, I did phone but he was at work, it will now be over, due to the six hour time difference, but the thought was there. Tuesday, I went for my early medical test, we left on time, but it took longerContinue reading “Happy Birthday Brother”
Another rubbish night, thanks to the Party Goers who kept up the music until 4am, however then Pépe decided to get up… No way!! I just opened the outside door and went back to bed, until our usual time. Because I was expecting the guy to come and install the balustrade, I went down toContinue reading “Better day!”
Hot! Hot! Hot!
Yesterday, went much as planned, we went off and did our food shopping, I wasn\’t able to price my chainsaw, because they hadn\’t got the one I wanted, I will have to go to a bigger branch, possibly tomorrow. Back home, I started on the gardening again, until after dark, as it was cool, thenContinue reading “Hot! Hot! Hot!”
I\’ve got teeth!
Not a brilliant start, Pépe woke me at 3.45am wanting to go out, so I left the door open and crawled back into bed, I saw 4.30am tick around, then nothing until 5.30, when Pépe was pawing at me again! We had to be at the Dentists by 8 o\’clock this morning, I seemed toContinue reading “I\’ve got teeth!”
