Living the Dream in Almería

For those who have been logging on to In search of a Dream, sorry!!! This new blog is about our day to day life as we try to complete our madcap projects.

Never trust a man with keys
14 January 2009 @ 14:45

At the weekend it rained cats and dogs (shock, horror, RAIN in Almería??!).  There had also been a lot of wind and the plastic sheet covering the (leaky) roof of the static caravan originally purchased to house our builders had more or less blown off.

Today's sunshine seemed like the ideal opportunity to get the cover back on but first we needed to open the caravan to see what havoc has been wreaked inside. 

The keys were last used sometime last summer but should have been easy to find:   I am not known for my tidy nature and neither is Terry, so we have a very simple system -  there is a box for keys.  It is the responsibility of whoever uses them last to replace them there.  This is VERY important because not only do we have two houses of our own to worry about but we also have spares for no fewer than 6 other friends and neighbours.  I live in constant fear of losing someone else's keys.

So no surprise when I went to the box and ... no keys.  I was not a happy bunny because I know he must have been the last to use them because I can't make the caravan door key work.  He enquired in injured tones that 'I suppose you think it's my fault...??..'    

Long story short, three hours fruitless searching and still no keys.  My presence is now required at the caravan as plastic sheet replacement is a two-person job.

Hi Jane
SO glad to hear Terry is like my OH ! Don't you just hate it when you KNOW you're in the right but God forbid, THEY don't quite see it that way ?
Ah well, such is life. We love them really.

Hi Jane,
Now I just know this is going to be another interesting blog in addition to Karen,flog it and Maria's.
Already you have my attention and sympathies. My husband could never find the key to the garden shed after he had been the last to use it. It was kept by me (who always -naturally- put it there after using it) in the cupboard next to the kitchen door on the way out to the garden, but was usually found in the washing machine or the pocket of a washed pair of his gardening trousers!!
After one particularly long hunt for it he decreed that it must be kept on the worktop above the oven next to the fruit bowl. Now it gets 'lost' amongst the other rubbish that he dumps there, or gets swept away during one of my tidying sprees and ends up in the bin.
Also it still somehow keeps turning up in the washing machine, various jacket pockets and his workbench in the garage.
Of course I must have put it there since there are only two of us in the house! !

I look forward to your next installment.
