Day two of the long weekend and what did we do?
Well, Mex went to the bank and transferred the money for the new house.
Then we went and looked at showers.
For the second time.
I suspect we will be doing this on a regular basis.
Mex goes into everything with a fine toothcomb.
It drives me nuts.
I am beginning to wonder if our relationship of 27 years is going to survive the next three months.
He is very bitter about the money I put into this place.
He won’t go into eat.
It is very uncomfortable.
It has become clear that my dear mother got me here under false pretences.
If my Dad goes first (which is likely) she will change the will in the blink of an eye.
She has made that clear in a non obvious way.
But I suspected that all along.
I am taking strain as I find it very distasteful to fight over money.
It is just not in my nature.
We went to look at the plot today.
Lord, I can foresee months of dust and dirt while they are building more houses.
The huge pile of rubble at the far edge of our plot is the start of the “greenbelt”
I have no idea when they will start on that.
On the upside I can take Jasmine for walks as it is and I won’t have to pick up poop.
As we were leaving I told Mex we had to go to the far left gate.
He approached it at an angle and it did not open.
So he tried another gate.
That didn’t open either.
I told him we had to go to the far left so he reversed in a huff.
And hit a street light, knocking it flat.
He hardly touched it so I suspect someone had already hit it.
We returned to the gate I had indicated and it opened.
I swear I didn’t say “I told you so”.
But if you could have read my thoughts…….
Tomorrow we go to friends for a BBQ.
I would like to take Jasmine but last time she pooped all over their lawn.
