|Marcela's new garden|
|"Just you try to move me Dad!..."|
Busy afternoon, Marcela was having problems with her swimming pool pump/filter, so that took her most of the afternoon.
I started painting the outside of the house, and then turned to a bit of gardening, I pruned the mandarin, then there was one fruit tree that needed to come out, I started to dig down, and spent more time removing stone and brick, and then realised, I wasn't going to get to the roots, when they had demolished the old fincas, they had piled the rubble up around the trunk, and surprisingly it had survived, and started sprouting other roots, don't ask me what it is called, I have never seen one before, but it has a small fruit that turns red, and is very acid, apparently it makes a nice juice, but there aren't enough to do that, so I ended up digging down a couple of feet, and then sawing through the trunk.
There is also a mango tree outside the workshop window, it has been cut once, at some stage in the past, but I have had another go, and will be continuing to attack it later this week.
Haceb, the domestic appliance manufacturer, sent out their Service Engineers this evening to look at the oven, that has been electrocuting Marcela, and their was a problem it was wired up incorrectly, it is just as well we are on 110v and not 220v. Now it is working great, and they have changed the nozzles on the hob, and that to will now cook a dinner in under four hours!!!!!!
Day now finished, and tomorrow, we are out most of the day, shopping for security cameras, alarm systems, amongst other things.
