What a week
The weather finally broke, taking us from 90 degrees to 70. Breo is most pleased.
The power went out, and when it came on again for some reason the circuit controlling the ceiling lights kept tripping. First, we checked all the light bulbs in the house, but that made no difference, so we called the electrician, who came (!) and located a split cable. He thinks it got hit by a nail when they were installing the flooring. Just a coincidence? All now working again and for only 50€.
We´ve discovered mice, once again, in the kitchen. Traps now laid and cabinets cleaned.
I met with two lovely women who run a local florist shop. They were very nice and informative, but I went home with all the flowers as they were considered too short and too open to be useful. Still, I dread this whole face-to-face thing so much that I´m chuffed I´ve started the process. Must prick out the biennials today before the rain starts.
Breo had a kerfuffle with his cousin the Jack Russell from Madrid, so the sister´s visit had to be reorganized. Now battening down the hatches for the annual 2 week stay of the In-laws. See you in September!
