These building or labouring jobs for Mr A come and go so quickly it's difficult to keep up. After the building job that lasted two days, for which he was eventually paid (thank goodness), I told you about the job up in the hills. Clearing trees and burning wood. He worked along with 14 other men on Monday and Tuesday. It rained on Wednesday, so there was no work.
Mr A was in the teahouse on Wednesday evening and was informed by some of the other workers that this job had finished. Apparently it was being done illegally (I have no idea what this means), but as usual Mr A and the other men are all owed 2 days pay, which has been promised for Monday...we'll see!
Not to be deterred Mr A asked around and was given the phone number of a builder who works in the areas between here and Bodrum. He phoned him and was told to turn up yesterday morning to help build a wall about 3km from the industrial estate. He will be paid 50 lira a day (the exchange rate today is 3.83 to the pound...so this is about £13). He worked yesterday and today, and hopefully (fingers and everything else crossed) this will continue for a bit longer. It seems a little more promising as the man actually gave Mr A some petrol money today, and he provides food.
He has also said that if Mr A finds any other work in the area that they can do together, then they will split the profit 50/50. So we are a little more optimistic.
The one advantage with this work is that all this physical exertion is making Mr A feel a lot healthier, which is good.
The weather yesterday and today has been lovely, with temperatures around 19 degrees, so I have been cleaning out the dog house and washing their blankets. Making the most of the sunshine as rain is forecast tomorrow and the coming week.
We are continuing with our street dog feeding programme, and undertook quite a large task yesterday. You can keep up to date with this by clicking on the "Street Dog Feeding and Treatments" at the top of the page.
