Oh, I’m sooo busy! …..

Since January 2017, I have been immersed in the life of the small village community of Qala. My days are determined by shopping in the village shop of Benna, my cappuccino break in Zeppi’s pub, cleaning up guest rooms, linen and towels wash, decorate guest rooms, to maintain the herb garden in the forecourt, the vegetable garden and the roof terrace and the plants at the pool.

Fortunately, I’m a privileged maid with a private pool that can make a refreshing break! Continue reading Oh, I’m sooo busy! …..

My Lady is working

If you are bored, you are looking for a new project. That’s my mantra. In this case I create a new guest room in my country house on Gozo.

When I rent the house last year, I was not really happy about the furnishing in it. Specially the bedroom at the second floor displeased totally. In the past there must be flooted and the wood was damaged. Now its time to change.

Thanks for Maltashopper I could order a new bed, sideboard, side cabinets and more by IKEA. My lovely neigbour Andi and his friends will help me to assemble anything.

The old bed will be a sun bed at the roof terrace and the board take place as shelve for plants on. The Gozian summer will come soon, I hope!

The new room must be finish end of the month, my sister and her husband will come and they will be the first to stay there. This will be a surprise!

The old vanity get new legs and a nice new colour and find a new place in the living room at the first floor as a desk. I’m shure my guests will love the new furnishings.

Flecky the cat will be glad, that she don’t move oncemore, she is nervous about the action in her house! She hats the driller, screwdriver and saw really. Hopefully she doesn’t fall in the colour.

 

What’s to do in the Gozian Winter?

We have winter, yes we have! Little bit different to Germany. It will be sunny, rainy and windy and sometimes anything together, but mostly upper 15° C.

Our houses are not build for rainy days and you need your trousers, wool socks and cardigan when you are staying in or outside. Where, on any islands, an umbraela is not bad.

The last evening outside was the Halloween night with my neigbours at Zeppis’ Pub. A crowd of masked people are there and we have had a lot of fun.23146085_1511282218924864_635226211_n

I used the silence time for tours around the island. Mostly by bus, sometimes per foot. Per example a Sunday’s walk down to the harbour of Mgarr. In the time of advent the live of Bethlehem starts in Ghajnsielem and I have had a view in the past, on the time of Jesu birth.

By the way, the streets in the villages are nice decorated and anywhere Xmas songs sounded at the places and roads.

 

 

Also the social life goes on during the winter. With a party at home to celebrate Saint Nicholos, Ladys Nights and visiting the opera in Victoria, meeting my friends at Zeppi’s my days were filled.

The life don’t stops, it only runs slowly!
