I STILL can’t seem to download my photos.
And I have quite a few I want to share with.
Like Mex’s War/move wounds.
He has a massive bruise.
One of note.
He says it comes from hard work.
Wants to know why I don’t have any.
If he keeps that up he will have a few more to show off.
Why am I confused?
Because I seem to be constantly looking for stuff.
I have packed and moved furniture all over the place.
Our “flat” is small.
Really just a fair sized bedroom.
With a tiny kitchen alcove and a bathroom.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the builder.
I think he saw two old people and ripped them off.
Have met with the builder.
OK..he HAS cut corners but this was with the agreement of my Dad.
The shower wasn’t working.
We either had to have a scalding shower or an ice cold one.
He brought a new shower head and I think it is better.
At some stage we might have to install a separate geyser.
Also,he put the fittings for the washing machine in a room behind the flat.
One with no power.
I want it inside so we are having the fittings re-done.
Our biggest problem has been INSIDE the house.
It has brought it home to me just how old my folks have got.
Mex and I have spent a day and a half just in the kitchen.
And we are way from finished.
I have filled six big black bags with crap.
And there are still more cupboards to go.
It is a miracle they have not got food poisoning.
The record for stuff that has expired is 2002!!!!!
I think I have tossed out a couple of thousand rands worth of food.
You clear one cupboard with flour,sugar,rice etc.
Only to find another with the same sort of things.
Let’s not talk about the Tupperware.
Please let’s not talk about the Tupperware.
They have a maid twice a week.
A big fat lady called Mavis.
Who has just drifted around doing the bare essentials.
I think she has lost a few kgs today.
I don’t,altogether, blame her.
Every surface is covered with crap.
We got stuck in a moved all the furniture out from the walls.
And all the stuff off the surfaces.
She really got into the spirit of the thing.
I felt a bit sorry for her.
She thought she had finished the bathroom.
And I called her back.
Told her to vacuum again.
In the corners too!
Gave her an old toothebrush.
Told her to clean under the taps etc.
I wonder if she will be back on Wednesday?
Oh Shyte…Mex is back in the kitchen.
I will have to go and help.
I am SO damn tired.
I miss you guys.
