And that’s exactly what it’s been. I’ve written off to our neighbours to get some feedback on maintenance, I’ve fastened the drip pipe to the wall, now awaiting inspiration as to how to make it invisible… (wall is white, hose is black, not a good start) and after tackling suicidal wasps in the Jacuzzi for half an hour I’m now back inside pondering installing a second WIFI access point with greater coverage outside. The sun for now has gone behind clouds, not something you see very often here in the summer… I’m hoping it will be back in full force in the morning… you can’t beat a sunny bank holiday Monday.
I’m on the lookout for a water treatment kit on Ebay (the water here is rather over-enthusiastically endowed with calcium), oh, and the spray we bought to keep the insects off me…. works, my legs look almost human once again. All in all not a bad way to spend a weekend, rounded off nicely in the evening as we were invited to spend an evening of Tapas and drinks with our Spanish neighbours Cosmo and his wife and friends. We had a really nice, relaxing evening over at their place though now I’m feeling really guilty about my poor Spanish – but we DID find out that contrary to what we thought, Spanish lessons are available throughout the summer, something I intend to make full use of next year. Meanwhile it’s back to listening to Michel Thomas who’s not the most engaging teacher in the world….
