28/8 – No Work!

August 29, 2007 | 1 comment | Blog

So anyway, its been really quiet this month – normal for August so I am told, a little scary never the less; but not to be idle I decide (or rather Liesl decides for me) that it’s time to sand down the new, second hand, front door and frame so that it can be varnished – not a bad job me thinks, all day in the sun, I can handle that!

Anyway, off to the local DIY shop to buy sand paper, varnish and the like, no problem there, very reasonable (about 10 euros for the lot), excellent.

Liesl started to read the instructions – well her Spanish is much better than mine! “What is the temperature?” she says. “Well its 37 degrees at the moment” I reply.

“The directions on the tin say that the varnish should be applied when the temperature is between 12 and 25 degrees!” says Liesl.

LOL, the lowest the temperature currently drops is about 27 degrees – would you believe that I am going to have to wait for winter before I can varnish the bloody door!

    Put the bloody Air Con on and move the door inside the apartment – then the hot air will rush in and the door will get hot! Doh!
