I haven´t posted for eleven days, but my goodness how busy we have been.
We have basically been with Rebecca and Antoni most of the time helping to sort, pack, trips to the storage unit and the dump.
Just when you think a hole has been made, bosh another pile turns up for bubble wrapping and boxing. Thank goodness Rebecca and I had started back in January otherwise it wouldn´t have happened. The house was 4 bedroomed, although one of the bedrooms Antoni used for his business so it was jammed packed. They are moving into Antoni´s one bedroom flat so most of the stuff had to be sent to storage. They will certainly feel the difference. They have given us all sorts of bits and bobs, including contents of the larder and all house cleaning products, some items to borrow others to have, some just returned home here, bags and bags, so our home looks like a bomb has gone off with stuff everywhere until we can straighten things out. Its a good job we have the casita which has become a dumping ground.
Their furries went to the cattery on Wednesday which did make life a little easier without them. They will go over next Wednesday.
They were due to leave on Thursday, but what with some legalities to be dealt with, never a quick option over here, and a huge pile still to pack and sort they reviewed their departure to today.
Yesterday saw us still packing etc but included a complete clean ready for the landlords inspection.
The spanish are usually late, but murphy´s law, they arrived bang on time and we still had two floors to mop.
They were extremely pleased with the clean up etc and agreed they could have their deposit back, every one warned us that that doesnt happen very often here. But... then they dropped a bombshell that because of their poor management they hadn´t sent bills for the water and refuge for 6 years and wanted 1051 euros. What!!!!!!
Rebecca, quite rightly got a little cross and there were further discussions, how it gets sorted I don´t know. More stress and we are worn out.
However on the bright side after selling their car, we picked them up and they stayed the night, bonus..
Last Sunday was my birthday and we all joined in for a meal at Maria´s, making a party of 10 which was quite jolly and they stayed the night again.
I was spoilt with lots of lovely pressies including a 10 visit pass for the spa in Calpe, something lovely to look forward to, a set of 100 dragonfly solar lights, a beautiful standard rose and a lovely bouquet and more......
I also wanted to make an elephant for Rebecca to take, filled with lots of love and hugs, so this is Elle
As Elle was travelling she needed a passport, so Chris took her photo and made her one.
Rebecca loved her, so if she feels a little down she can have a hug with Elle
After an early start for the airport run, feeling more than a little jaded, but I shall leave you with Felix
Enjoy the rest of the weekend
