14/4 – Gran Alacant or Beirut?

April 14, 2007 | 1 comment | Blog

Building work is carrying on at a pace on our urbanisation, over the past couple of weeks we have had scaffolding erected around our block – right up to the apartment and there is a gang of around 10 men that start work at 8am and finish at 8pm who spend most of the day making as much noise as possible (I’m told that this is all part of their job, but I am certain that they are doing it with the sole intent of pissing me off!)

I guess it had to happen at some point, we desperately need the blocks to be renovated and we are paying a great deal of money to make it happen so it was inevitable that they would get around to us at some point – I am just glad that they have started and, hopefully, our bit will be completed soon and we can get back to some sort of normality – I mean its affecting us in so many different ways, not just the noise, we are not able to dry clothes as we used to hang them over the balcony, now there are several men on scaffolding and lots of dust so that’s out of the question – we are having to try to dry them indoors (no central heating remember) or take them over the Heather and Ken’s place at the weekend and hang them up in their garden.

As you can see from the pics (and they were taken after the workmen had cleaned up for the day!). It’s not the best view we have ever seen from our balcony!

The weather here is still changable, its been said that the Spanish have never seen this length of rainy weather before – typical eh? Anyway, its all set to change, according to the forecast, on Monday the sun comes back and the tempretures shoot up, we are not due to get any more rain until around December!
