Well, Casa San Jorge has had a face-lift! The “new” section has been rendered to help it fit in with the rest of the hamlet. The only problem being is that now our house is a brilliant white and the rest of the houses are an off-white, dirty kind of colour. We’re considering chucking some mud at it to make it look authentic! It shouldn’t take long for it to blend in though; one dirty down pour and the house will look just the same as all the others!
Today’s jobs; fit windows, tile stairs and finish tiling the roof terrace. All very exciting!
I also convinced hubby to come window shopping with me to Murcia. This is no mean feet since he doesn’t do shopping.. at all. It all hung on a promise that if he came with me to Leroy Merlins and Ikea, I’d take him to KFC. Doesn’t sound exciting I know, but when you realise that he LOVES his Kentucky and add that to the fact he hasn’t even seen a KFC in over a year, then maybe you’ll understand.
Unfortunately, for him, when we got there, we discovered KFC in Murcia has closed down. This was an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions. I kid you not. I could not have been more unpopular if I tried. So in reality, the day consisted of two hot and bothered people stomping round Leroy Merlin’s not talking to each other and dismissing any tile/paint/kitchen choices the other cared to share. Oh dear. I decided it was probably best to forgo the planned trip to Ikea. We eventually found somewhere to eat; an American themed restaurant. A “how would you like your burger cooked,” (definite sign this was going to be a great burger), a full rack of ribs and a €50 bill later and hubby was somewhat placated. We even managed to have a civil conversation about kitchens – we live the life I know – and have agreed on an island/breakfast bar idea. So I suppose that was progress.
Only a million other things we need to agree on. Ah well, one day at a time!
