Tuesday in Galera: Today we had a late start, mainly due to my overdoing the wine last night. After catching up with emails we went off to Huescar where we discovered a new Ferreteria and came back with rather large containers of paint and PVA to start the job of reconstructing the “as new” look to the walls. Maureen bought a curtain hanger and
I bought a roller extension so I can touch up the roof! With several hours of sunshine I managed to get quite a stretch of wall painted.
In the evening, being still far too cold to sit out at night, we went off to a new (for us) pizza restaurant in Huescar and then briefly to a local bar in Galera to watch a bunch of guys with guitars.
The hot tub is still running off a fish-tank heater as it’s not been warm enough to sit on the ground and replace the electronics, something I’ll do this week – but if nothing else… this week’s tip – if you want to leave your jacussi on over the winter and save money – turn the heater off and stick in a £10 fishtank element. It won’t keep it warm but then – it won’t freeze!
My over-the-mains internet controllers proved they cannot handle varying mains voltages – one of them The laptop handling Skype and my webcam has all but given up the ghost due to a dodgy in internal fan… so that’s another replacement next time we’re over here. Seems being Mr Fixit is my new hobby.
Wednesday morning…. clear blue skies this morning. A little frost on the top of the roof but as the temperature is now heading up past 6 degrees (10.35am) that won’t last long. Could be a good day.
