The weather has been mostly good. Warm sunshine, but it has been very windy on top of this hill so I haven't spent a great deal of time sitting outside.
Beki is now fully recovered from her ordeal. She's back to charging around the garden, barking furiously at every cat or chicken she sees. The tablets prescribed for her sprained leg, but mostly for her arthritis do come with side effects if used long term. Having discussed this with Mehmet the vet, he said it was best to only give them when I felt she really needed them. She had just two this time and they have done the trick.
Whilst Mr A was here for a few days last week he finished off a bench seat he was making for the garden, which we have placed just in front of the balcony.
I'm not sure if I posted a photo previously of the picnic table he made a couple of months ago, but here it is;
He also made a shelf for the bathroom. This room is tiny and very much a work in progress that's come to a halt while we decide what to do with it. The walls are tiled two-thirds of the way up, but the rest still needs to be plastered. We may decide to make the room bigger by using a bit of the spare bedroom, so we've done nothing further to it yet.
The cupboard has of course been recycled. The doors were removed and it's now become a shoe cupboard on our balcony.
And here's Mr A checking out his father's land down in the village, before returning to Kusadasi.
He's back home again today, just for a few days. As usual, he's out in the shed again, making more useful things with wood.
