I can't believe how lomg it is since I last wrote. Just goes to show how busy life has been.Seven weeks of hot sun has enabled the corn to ripen (embarrassingly)well and the tomatoes to finish early.However cucs and melons still struggling on.Even sleeping outside has its problems ,relief from the night time temps 20-23 Deg BUT being chewed alive by the latest addition at 24 - the chocky monster.(12 week old pup from Scruffy) whose brother William still resides at M+G's. Have forgotten the joys of young children,lift if breakable, remove all shoes and other interestingly chewy objects etc.! He is however a great distraction from life's chores and most especially a project for Sam who is holidaying here with Stu.I am enjoying getting to the beach and sunbathing on the terrace with pool(s) instead of running around like a headless chicken trying to accomplish what needs to be done.Round 3 of alterations was insulating remaining walls and one of the days it was 50 Deg outside!! M+G have made a new inside facility for washing and also purchased an automatic washing machine which has already made M's life easier.Unfortunately the original purchaser for my
car has had to back

out.So this is a worry to be sorted after kids go on Tues. Otherwise things are going well and S+S and I have had a lovely time so far.Albena later today and Kamchia(beach and river)Tomorrow.Sunday is a packing day and stay home day with G's birthday celebrations.Monday we will get to Burgas airport for 12am after visiting Nessebur and Sozopol on the way there.I will then drive to my hotel in Obzor and leave again early tuesday to get home. 2weeks later J+J arrive for another stay so never a dull moment.Hope you enjoy the photos.
