Day 13/15 – Friday 27th March –15 days of Spanish lock down

Well I never thought carrying the trash out to the bins could be such fun…!

Majic is really getting confused – back and forth on the same road 10 times in a row.  Strangely the builders were back working in the house next door this week – hardly seems to be ‘critical’ labour. Must have been about 5 of them wearing masks as I passed by with the dog back and forth. They are doing a full renovation of the property, but it seems to be taking forever.   They started mid-January and at the rate they are working they still might be there this time next year!   It’s not like the builders my clients used in White Pearl Beach, Elviria and Alcazaba Beach, Estepona – two full reforms projects I managed for clients – both beach front communities.

Many clients shy away from buying properties that require reform.  I do understand that the thought of managing builders from afar can be daunting.   But it really doesn’t need to be.  They key of course is having reliable builders and a trusted person keeping an eye on them when you are away.  I don’t make recommendations of this kind lightly – but I have builders that I trust, that do the work properly, to high standards and without cutting any corners.

So the first sparks ignited in the house in the evening – some trivial argument that escalated between son and mum. Then brother got involved to side with mum and then dad (me) despite my better judgement got involved to shut them all up!!!  Everyone retreated to their separate spaces to cool off and finally then peace was restored! Have you ever come across a scenario like that, or a variation thereof?!!  If not, wait til you get to day 13 of a lock down!!!

I am actually surprised that after 13 days of living together 24/7 that there has only been one escalation!  To be honest, my sons have been amazing. They have kept focused on their studies, they help out, clean up after themselves in the kitchen and keep their rooms reasonably tidy (or at least one does!)
I can’t believe they turn eighteen in July and will be off to university in October, but that’s another story…
 
 
 
Keep safe.
