PostSubject: Getting fed up now   Thu Aug 06, 2015 10:27 am

First topic message reminder :

We still have lots and lots to do here in the villa and the garage but to be honest I am getting real fed up with it all. We take 2 steps forward and 10 steps back. We added a little bit of yellow paint to white to make cream but it turned out to be a hint of pale green, which was very nice so we did the painting and it looked lovely, but then got the tiles out and the colour does not match. They have been stored for 7 years and I thought they were beige. So now have to redo the painting again. Should have looked at the tiles first eh! they are beige with a hint of orange not green.....  Also not enough tiles for the bathroom  so have to plan something else for there.  Got the kitchen out that we also brought here 7 years ago and now don't like it, so maybe this will do as an outside kitchen, that is if we ever get the area finished..... Still need to get a jcb in to flatten the ground so cannot do the stones until we get that done, than have to find someone to transport the stones. I have sent the mayor a message to ask if he knows of a jcb owner at a good rate.  They are charging us too much 290 lev for 1 hour with a driver and you know it will go into two or three hours plus extra for transporting the jcb 15km each way..... Me thinks they are taking the michael eh.  If I get the builder in, he charges 220lev a day for himself and 2 labourers so swings and round abouts  GuessI need to give myself a good kick to get me motivated again eh!!

Thank you T Itchy got a bit more done little by little. The neighbours said they will be here on Thursday at 8.30 to help flatten the ground g We will see how that goes.

This morning at 8.05am the truck arrived with 7 ton of balliast, our friend in Silistra ordered it for us including transport 150lev g

Had a good day yesterday the lovely neighbours came along to help us level out the area for the new driveway so no need for a JCB now.  We are getting there slowly but surely, I just need to learn to ask for help.

I am amazed as there is so much space going to waste and we never thought about using this area before

Tomorrow I am off to the UK for a while so I don't think much more will be done now until I get back.   Still waiting to hear from the Mayor of Babuk re the gates and the man to build the bollards....
