House of the rising sun!

I notice that several members are limbering up in preparation for their annual pilgrimage to Turkey.
But what trials and tribulations await as the door of your dwelling swings creaks open for the first time since last year.
Will there be water or electric, may be you have been blessed with a leaky roof or a damp patch (no not that sort!) that further enhances the musty smell, possibly you have visitors, of the four legged variety.
Having been down in Bodrum a while I am still working through my repairs and I still have not ventured into the jungle that was once a garden.

For those arriving soon ....you have it all in front of you ...AGAIN!

Re: House of the rising sun!

Gardens always a friggin nightmare. Most other stuff sound. Great neighbours go in and check for any leaks etc. First week is usually spent sorting things out. All part of the craic

Re: House of the rising sun!

Got back last Thursday from my first foray of the season.

In 6 days we had just one day of sunshine, and that after a down pour.

On our arrival, turned the water on and it immediately flowed out of a small valve like thing on the boiler. Turned water off, called a man in who proceeded to flood the bathroom at least twice before deciding to remove the boiler all together to attempt a repair elsewhere. In taking it down the stairs he dropped sludge on every step, splashing dirty water liberally up magnolia walls. We were without hot water until Tuesday. We left first thing on Thursday.
Sprung a leak under the sink. Just a small one. Not wanting for the water to be turned off again, managed it at first with an empty olive jar. But this gradually worsened until it needed a full size bucket by the time we left. With hind sight, should have got it sorted.

The outside looks quite dreadful. Where once there was grass, now weeds thrive. Between the block paving weeds flourish. Of course I didn't expect the pools to be full but there are weeds sprouting between the marble tiles.

All in all, I came away feeling more than a little depressed. I argued with he who ought be obeyed to let me go. He usually does this trip and paints the terraces. I will not ask again!!!

But I love the place and when we visit in May for 2 weeks, this will seem so very distant. Well, I hope so anyway.

See you there guys!!!!!

M

Re: House of the rising sun!

Mary that sounds so familiar...... we could start a trend as I also have weeds growing out of the marble round the pool.

Re: House of the rising sun!

Got a list of jobs as long as Linsey wrote it, not anticipating too many problems, we are due for a paint job anyway this year, Its a hard call as to which paint to use, so long as its white. Garden should be ok, if not I will bring in a man who can, got some electrics to move, easy enough, the difficult job is being there for 5 matches starting with Liverpool on Sunday, now where will I watch that one I wonder.

Re: House of the rising sun!

Always like the start of the season. Not too hot and great to get back and see people I havent met for 6 months. Good times.

Last season on my 3 rd night I got impromptu karaoke going- great laugh but very late home - 4am

Always happy to, shall I bring my own blackcurrant, I will be the rather large chap with a brown paper bag over my head on match days.
