First…progress on the house.
They have put on the first couple of coats of paint inside.
The outside is facebrick so no paint needed there.
Hopefully, they will finish the painting by Tuesday or Wednesday.
Then, I think, they come in and do the cupboards and the kitchen units.
And they still have to do the shower.
I am still hopeful we will be able to move by mid August.
This is all good news.
Now for the bad news.
I believe the complex is full of snakes!!!!!!!
Most snakes will move away when they hear you coming( I think).
They lie there and wait for you to step on them.
Then they get annoyed and bite you.
And they grow BIG.
And I am terrified of the things.
And MEX is worse.
ML’s son owns a snake park in Cape Town.
She says snakes are more afraid of you.
They only come indoors looking for water.
Mex has visions of hearing a noise at the front door.
Opening the door and finding a snake there.
But I don’t think they knock.
I have visions of stepping on one when I go out to my car, in the dark, in the mornings.
Or one gets into my engine for warmth.
And, while I am on the highway, pops it’s head up and looks at me through the windscreen.
I WILL leave the road.
And my car.
Healthwise all is good.
No more nosebleeds.
My eye is almost back to normal.
Except for a slight blur to the one side where the membrane still appears to be little loose.
It is irritating but not a train smash.
Also on the upside the sun is starting to come up a little earlier in the mornings.
Hopefully, it won’t be too long and I will be going to work in the light.
There is rain forecast for tomorrow but all clear next week so they can carry on with the house.
Mind you, the only outside work left is the garden wall and planting of grass.
Enough for today.
You are all going to be so sick of hearing about the house.
