Smooth like a mirror...

the sea is today... not a breath of wind...



awaiting another hot day, dad kestrel is dozing on the cliffside



The window news? Day one.. they did not come (overran on another job), Day two,... they realized mistakes were made in the manufacuring, wrong seals, mismeasured windows.. most of the day was spent waiting for the surveyor.. Day 3 (friday, the day the were meant to finish!) They finally started. Yay!

However, rather than doing one room and finish it, so I can get things straight in the room they have done, they have put the windows in so far in the back, but not finished them (brickwork still showing..) and are proposing to take the front windows out on monday, then finish the rest starting tuesday.. which means I cannot unpack anything at all, and they are working in all rooms at the same time... In short? Nightmare...

I keep thinking that in a weeks time it is all over and I can unpack and sew again.. All keep your fingers and toes crossed for me it is going to go ok from now on....

Off to pack up the lounge!

The sea looks absolutely gorgeous!! Oh dear, the window story does sound like a nightmare, but I think it is pretty typical of contractors to work in that fashion. I so sympathize with you.

Wow, you can almost feel the heat coming off that photo. Hope they eventually get the windows finished for you and you can get back to normal very soon :)

Not going too well then?? It will end..eventually!! I've got everything crossed for you. Looks like a lot of haze hanging around, that sea looks amazing though...

Hope you get better progress with the windows this week. Will be crossing fingers and toes and holding thumbs too (that's what they do in South Africa for good luck). Juliex
