Unfortunately, he sold nothing on either occasion, but they do want him to work there this year for which he will be paid a salary. Although neither of us is particularly happy about him going away to work again, earning money is more important. And the season in Kusadasi (because of the cruise ships) is longer than that in Bodrum.
So he set off this morning (just managing to dodge the rain) and phoned me mid afternoon to say that he was about to head for home.
A couple of hours later he phoned, sounding rather upset, to say that he had crashed the motorbike. He was still near Kusadasi and apparently the back wheel flew off and down he went. He went to the Kusadasi hospital and had x-rays and there were no broken bones but he is badly bruised. He left with a prescription for pain relief.
Later this evening he was getting more intense pain when breathing so returned to the hospital. They gave him an injection for the pain but couldn't do another x-ray until tomorrow morning. He has a friend with a pansyon (guest house) so he is staying there tonight.
I haven't had much to blog about this week, and was going to do a post this evening moaning about the state of the garden and how Mr A has yet again gone completely against my wishes. But that all pales into insignificance now.
We haven't been getting on too well recently. I think largely due to the stress caused by him being out of work for so long, but something like this makes you realise what's important.
So I doubt I will sleep tonight because I am stuck here, unable to do anything useful, other than waiting by the phone, just in case he rings.
