It's been a week since I last did a blog post..most unusual for me. I just don't seem to be able to find anything interesting to write about at the moment. So just a quick update which will have to do until I feel a bit more enthusiastic and inspired to write more.
Today is the first day of Şeker Bayram, the holiday following Ramazan, when people eat far too much chocolate and sweets. I have my basket of sweets by the door ready for the children who will come calling.
Mr A changed jobs last week. Still selling the hamam experience, but for a hotel spa centre in Torba, just outside Bodrum. He had become disillusioned with the way the last hamam was being run. You may recall my recent post about this. His new boss is someone he has known for a few years. He worked for him a couple of winters ago in a hamam in Istanbul. This man has been regularly contacting Mr A for weeks now, trying to persuade him to join him. Finally, Mr A succumbed, and the decision was made easier by the promise of a higher percentage commission, and the possibility of a job for the winter.
The in-laws arrived yesterday, and have actually been quite pleasant company so far. They are off out today to visit friends, then will start working on the land tomorrow. As usual, I have no idea how long they will be here.
And that's it for now.
