A nasty shock and a nice surprise!
I don't know enough about electricity to understand why this happened. Although the shower is electric, it is switched off until the winter as we have solar panels on the roof to heat the water, and the only other electrical item switched on at the time was the ceiling light. Maybe someone can explain why this would have happened?
And the nice surprise? Mr Ayak came home around 2 'o 'clock this morning and stayed all day today. He just left at 5pm. It's been absolutely ages since he's been home and after breakfast this morning we headed off into Milas to do a few things. We looked at small shops to rent as he has an idea for another business when the season finishes at the Hamam at the end of October. I won't go into detail yet, because it's still early stages. However he has already paid a small "gesture deposit" on a Hamam at a hotel in Didim for next year. The rental is far less than the one he has now, and having experienced and learned from all the problems this year, maybe next year will be better. But I am as always philosophical when it comes to Mr Ayak and his adventures. After 12 years, nothing surprises me, and in spite of the ups and downs, we always manage to survive...and at least we are still together....and that's a surprise in itself sometimes I can tell you!
We did some food shopping and returned home, and Mr A fixed some chicken wire to the balcony gate and railing to stop Poppy from squeezing through. We've been meaning to do this for ages. Now that we're heading out of summer and there will be a bit more shade on the balcony, she can spend time out there with Beki instead of in her doggy house, without my having to constantly watch to make sure she doesn't escape over the garden wall.
So now he's gone...the house looks like a bomb has hit it. How is it that men can make such a mess in such a short time?
