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!”

As I said in my previous post, I went to the Mother-in-laws and put up a shelf for her, in so doing reminded myself why I don\’t go more often, she was really frosty, I was glad to finish and get out. From there, I went to look at brush cutters, and ended up buyingContinue reading “Painting”
The Hardest Part is Done!
Yesterday was painting, I stripped the walls of everything that was going to be in the way, and it certainly looked grubby! The only thing I wasn\’t moving was the DVR for the security cameras, I had taken down the monitor, I wasn\’t leaving myself without some coverage. I was about right in my assessment,Continue reading “The Hardest Part is Done!”
It never Rains but when it Pours
Today I finished painting the front and one side of the house, this should have been done months ago, and was really depressing me, but with all the construction near to us, it would have been a waste of time, it was no longer white, it was looking grey…not any more 😉 So, I amContinue reading “It never Rains but when it Pours”
Today after a joint effort of cleaning the house, I set to, painting the back wall, and just had enough paint left to get the job done. Now I just need to re-stack all my building materials, and I probably wont venture around the back again for another year!
Although there have been no posts for a week, that doesn\’t mean I have been putting my feet up! I have been doing maintenance work on the house, but nothing that was worth a post. Painting, gardening etc. all the mundane things we all have to do. Also winter is now here, which is goingContinue reading “Rendering…”
I have to admit, I hate painting, but unfortunately it is a necessity of life! 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!”
Today, I decided that rather than continuing with the rendering on the back of the house, which due to the heat, I think will have to be done in the afternoons, once the sun has moved round to the other side of the house, I would get on with finishing the \’zona de ropa\’, thereforeContinue reading “Painting”
It took a day or two!
It has been a couple of days of ups and downs, it started with the downs, because Tito didn\’t want anything to do with Pépe, and was very jealous, if Pépe came anywhere near us, he went for him, and likewise feeding time, poor old Pépe didn\’t stand a chance! By Friday things were gettingContinue reading “It took a day or two!”
Painting finished…For now!
Not much to report today, we were both up early, and painting before the sun came up, however we had to continue once the sun arrived, as we wanted it finished. Once I had finished, I continued with my fencing, to create a wooden privacy screen so that at least some of the green materialContinue reading “Painting finished…For now!”
