Promises to be stunning. Worth all the frustration, once it is nearing completion. Keep your chins up!    :)

It will all be worth it in the end John.  This time next year you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.

Thanks both of you  :)

I don't really get angry as in rage, but do find it a bit annoying that I can't just slip someone a few euros and a problem disappears...

We know all the hassle etc will be worth it in the end, and we can see everything coming together, bit by bit.  They have an expression here "poco poco", which loosely translates as small steps (or even bit by bit) and its become our mantra!  I dropped off a dozen boxes of tiles this afternoon and the kitchen is now finished, apart from the window, and ready for the units to be fitted.  That's one of my jobs - unfortunately all my tools are in a storage unit somewhere south of Dartford and wont get here until the 26th of this month so its off to the local equivalent of B&Q to buy a drill next week  :)

I'm muy tranquillo just now but that may change if we don't have a proper electricity supply by the end of next week!!!

A small update  :)

We are now connected to the main electricity supply.  The down side is that my earlier estimate of €2,500 is likely to be on the low side - I don't think we'll have much change out of €3,000, just to get connected :(

Even the friends in extremely low places are regularly stiffed by Endesa, either financially or by their constantly changing demands.

Anyway, you don't have to worry, your suite with the sea view and infinity pool is coming along nicely.  Just waiting on the 65" telly and sauna to be delivered.
