We haven’t been doing much in the way of major jobs recently, mainly because it is too warm to exert yourself just now. I welded some extensions onto the frame at the back and put some wire up for the vines to grow along.

Vine support

Only just in time too because the vine is growing fast. Also painted the steel pergola at the south end of the house. There is a vine and a morning glory growing up that so I’d better think about stringing some wire up on that soon too.

We repaired a bed that we bought in Kas so that Jenny’s house (Mulberry Cottage) has a bed in the second bedroom. All we have to do down there now is clean up a bit and it will be ready for occupation.

Almost forgot, I found some dirty water coming out from the foundation adjacent to the kitchen drain pipe last week. After the initial surprise I moved the sink unit and took off the wall panelling behind it to reveal the pipework. Still not much wiser about where it is coming from but there are only two ways dirty water can get in there, from the sink directly above the outlet through the wall, and from the washing machine about a metre and a half along. In the end I chopped out the existing pipes and replaced them with new ones so that I can see the connections just by opening the cupboard doors.

Jenny took Suleyman’s wife Hatice to Gokseki beach to learn to swim last Tuesday. Sounds like she enjoyed it very much. Then on Thursday Jenny went over to the Greek island of Meis to renew her visa for Turkey. The town over there is a lovely little place, quite a big harbour with houses coming right to the harbour side. The architecture is very different there due to the Italian occupation before the second world war.

Today is 7th of July ’07  (07/07/07) wonder what that means…
