Tuesday 13th July

I'm livid.....I received my telephone bill yesterday for my home phone and my internet connection.  Now I took out a cheap one at first and then realised that I would probably go over it so upgraded.  Instead of them cancelling the first, I am now paying for two and also for going over the tariff on the first one that I took out.  So after a phone call this morning, yes, they agreed that I had been overcharged but advised me that I still had to pay it and that they would issue a refund at a later date.   Absolutely wonderful....so I have to shell out approximately 70BGN which will get refunded when they get round to sorting it out......whoopeeeeee.

On a brighter note, all my big wood is now down to managable size but the maestors have got all my tools this morning so can't do a thing.  They have now learnt how to use the router and I think they are improvising...bugger.  As for the last planer I bought, it has blown up and has to go back to the shop so down to one and yes, they have got that as well as the sander.   Bum.....   but by the end of the day I should have some stairs for my guests.  I'm quite used to the ladder but let's be a little civilised when heading up to the galleried landing.....

Suppose there's nothing for it but shopping   and housework....

Thursday 15th July

Mikey B was right....Dawn's suitcase was and still is big but they were relying on me to provide and iron to smooth away the creases....and I'll be doing that then .  So today we got a special offer on one from Tecknomarket but I've told them that I don't know how to use it so it's down to them....

I have two cars...Beauty and the Beast are now parked in my drive and ready for action.  Took it for a test drive round the garage and Mikey B was allowed to drive it home since I didn't trust him with Beauty.  Tomorrow I have to go into the office and pay the tax on it and then on to Kardjali and get it MOT'd.  Then I can forget about all the legalities for the next year.

I forgot to mention.....I do have stairs and lots of pictures of them going in.  The men were splendid but I acknowledged very early on on Tuesday that they wouldn't finish what they were setting out to achieve so invited them back on the Wednesday while I was on airport duty.  Brilliant...they finished everything.

We've been round and about today and tomorrow off to Momchilgrad to see the house and get the fly screen from the window man....let's hope it's done, I got two little tiny frogs in tonight and was fortunate enough to see them hopping over the tiles in the hall.  Swept them out....beautiful but guests are invited and no invite, no can do.

Special message to you Princess....enjoy your weekend and it is even less minutes by now before you break up into thousands of pieces....love to you and the frogs and always to the moon and back..xxxx

And to the rest of you....LN...and I promise a few pickies of the places we go to see.....

Friday 16th July

Just a few pickies of the stairs that I took before my guests arrived....so I'd like you to remember that all I asked for were a set of temporary stairs so that my guests didn't have to climb that ladder.  I said...big wood, big nails not too much planing or planning but my men don't work like that....so here you go....

Friday night continued

Fully paid up Beast and all legal....went to see MOT man and he did all his stuff and gave me an MOT certificate and we had a discussion on the Rolling Stones, The Beatles, him playing keyboard and guitar and his daughter in Istanbul.  He's a lovely man and I am fully MOT'd.  The Beast is running as it should and so we went to Momchilgrad to my house in the mountains and 'it's still standing' yea, yea, yea but very remote but as for the views....still stupendous.  Called in at the motel on the way back and nothing seems to have changed.  Popped in to see D of S and he'd managed to strim his lawn and had come out a lovely shade of red/brown but it was really hot yesterday.

Just cooked pork with mushrooms, potato salad and hardboiled eggs for those that wanted, washed up and all put away and so now it's time for this quick update and then to bed.  I'm sleepy tonight....it's been hot and humid today but we did do some exploring and found a lake further on from my house.  There was a keyboard player and a flutist and lots of men but no women....one of the men asked me why I had a house in Dushinkovo and my reply was....why not!!!  

Any road up....Lecka Nosht....I must get my ittle head down.  Sleep tight.....

Saturday 17th July

My visitors are still sleeping.  Beautiful morning and a woodpecker gently knocking seven bells out out of my special tree.  The bea-eaters are back after time away, I know not where and it looks like being another very hot day.  Just waiting for the mobile shop for a new loaf of bread for breakfast....toast, butter, Bekir's Acacia honey, home made cherry jam and natural yoghurt....now what could be nicer.

Sunday 18th July
Went exploring further on from my house and on the way back spotted my house from the lower road.  Hadn't realised how impressive it looks and can only look better when the outside is rendered and balconies and terraces are finished...which year will that be????

Last night on the way back from Dzebel stopped by the police on a routine road check....hadn't got one document with me since I had put them all in the car folder but fortunately they recognised me and the vehicle, laughed, told me to drive slowly and I was sent on my way....the docs are now ready to be stashed in the Beast.

Had two different visitors yesterday.  A scruffy bundle of fun that just wanted to play.  I fed him bread but which he turned his nose up at but then he went into the bonfire garbage and decided that he wanted a chunk of polystyrene instead.  I offered bread again but obviously a stray but unfortunately I have run out of what he likes best....   We'll wait and see if he reappears.

My second visitor was found by the first and was just so small.  I heard him sniffing about and managed to get some quick pics.  Mikey B made me a bench and we are looking to site it now....a little too large for the kitchen so looking for another flat spot....and that will probably be under the large tree where it's just a nice spot to sit.

Today....need I say it, a beautiful morning  with a clear blue sky.  It's destined to be 34 degrees according to the BBC weather channel....let's see if they get it right.

Now to post a few pickies....
