Many of you know by now that I have big problems with my vibrating hands.
Problems, such as extracting euros from a cashpoint in a Spanish village nearby.
Twice, on different occasions, I went to grab hold of the money, instead of which I pushed the euros back into the slot. Luckily there was enough showing for a friend to extract it.
My true bank is on the coast, 30 miles away. It’s an international bank and all communications to me are in English. The local village banks are totally Spanish and my Spanish is limited. Goodness knows what they are really like >>>
Secondly, because of my hands, I am unable to write >>>>
So I have kept with the coastal bank for a number of years. I had to do something after pushing the euros back into the ATM slot. I went to the coast and withdrew a few thousand euros so that I would never have to use a local ATM again ….. well, for a few weeks !
I have guard cats protecting this money 24/7 with dedication and ferocity.
Happy that both Samantha and Sonic were 0% behind me I took a break from drafting this post and went out onto the rear balcony. Wow ! The Universe reminded me in the form of a cloud to tell you about what I saw after visiting the coastal bank.
This mural is what I saw near the bank.
I emailed a few photos to Resa, who very kindly published a feature post. Click on Resa’s photo to see the post. Thank you my friend and the Universe for reminding me❤
Well, that’s it for this post. Oh no, I spoke too soon !
Oh heck ! What now Samantha ?
What do you mean your bum’s wet ?
OMG. You’re right Samantha !
The work surface was covered in water. Not knowing where it came from and being a Sunday afternoon I turned off the water to the apartment. The plumber arrived Monday afternoon and on removing one of the overhead cabinets found a broken repair to the hot water pipe in the wall. It seems that this repair was made during installation of the kitchen units put in a year before I moved into the apartment.
Not having the right welding equipment with him he went away leaving a water bottle to channel the leak to drip into a basin. At least I had water back on again.
Tuesday afternoon he returned, repaired the pipe, put back the unit and emptied my wallet. I may have to return to the coastal bank earlier than I had planned. Oh boy !
Hornets are really sneaky like my cats.
Hornets fly into the apartment carrying a bucket of mud and quietly build their nests in inaccessible places. Last year. I found a huge lump of dried mud on the back corner of a curtain.
This year one built a nest here …..
…. and another here.
Luckily for me, just as the hornets were about to bring in all their relations and lay eggs, the outside temperature shot up into the 40°Cs, peaking at 48° C. This meant me closing all the windows and doors and running the air conditioning all day and evening. Yep, the hornets were locked out and never returned once the temperature dropped.
I am unable to climb stepladders, so I will ask Toni, my neighbour, to remove the nests while I take photographs for a future post. What a buzz !
No wonder I have vibrating hands !!!! 🙂
Oh boy !
Have you tried to give money back to the bank, or had a leak, or enjoyed a buzz ?
The ATM, plastic ducks and hornet pictures are not mine.
