80TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
Celebrated step father's 80th birthday on Saturday with his friends and family. He
had a lovely time, but we had to keep shouting at him again because he had taken his hearing aid out as he could hear the music in the background!
Here we go again. I had a cleaning job to cover at short notice and found out the location of the road on Google Maps. Unfortunately, when I got there, I hadn’t brought the house number
with me. I knocked on a couple of doors but they didn’t know who I meant. One of them told me to try the cottage on the corner. I duly knocked on the door and a man answered. Cleaning, I said. Oh
yes, what has happened to Sue? I thought they told you, she has the flu. She phoned me 10 minutes ago to say she was running late, she sounded alright then. Realising something
wasn’t quite right, I asked Are you Mr A? No my name is Mr B and I thought you were my cleaner as she is due any moment now!!
Off I went rather
embarrassed and eventually found the right house and person.
The next day, my phone rung at 6.30 am. Knowing my daughter worked on this day, I thought she was ringing up for emergency
babysitting. When I got to the phone I listened to the answerphone message.
An unknown elderly woman’s voice said Don’t come and pick me up this morning,
my leg is playing me up and I will have to see the doctor. Rather worried that someone was going to have a wasted journey, I rung the number and told her she had rung the wrong number. OH, I wanted to tell Jim that I wasn’t
going to the Day Care Centre today as my leg was bad, so I rung the Centre to tell them to tell him.
I explained again that she had rung my number by mistaken she needed to find
the correct number to ring. OH Can you ring them for me?
I gently told her I didn’t know the number or the Centre and she said she would try
again. I hope she found it.
Had a flying visit from the Deniwats on Sunday. We had a get together for Father’s Day, it was a pity the weather turned cold, still we
all managed to cram under my sturdy gazebo.
BED BUG UPDATE
For those of you who asked me if contacted anyone about the bug
problem, this is how the correspondence to the letting agency went.
I emailed them to confirm that I had no problems with the apartment, every thing was clean, but I thought they ought
to know about the bed bugs as it might cause them a problem if someone else made a fuss. I also said that they are on the increase due to people travelling and staying in hotels, etc, so it wasn't a criticism I was making. I wrote to
them in French via google translate, double checking it back in English to ensure it read right. I google translated their French reply in to English.
Thank you for this message and its terrible pictures.
And I am
EXTREMELY sorry for this problem encountered during your stay in Nice, and indeed, there never had this problem in this housing .
But what I do not understand is that it has been, since
you left , two other locations, one for one night , and a second 4 night with two people, left this morning , which I ' I personally am departure. And neither of these tenants has had this problem or not told me .
Are you sure this comes well this home, this bed? Not in business or in the plane that brought you to Nice?
Because I 'd really like to understand indeed.
And it's strange because the mosquitoes are still present either at the moment. So between bedbugs and mosquitoes. It's really weird .
The general sincere pleasure to read .
No I was sure I hadn't been bitten on the plane before I got there. The bites would have been around my lower back and bed bugs do not get through clothing. It was definitely
while I was staying there. Also research shows that the bites don't always come out immediately.
I assure you that I called this morning guests arrived yesterday in the apartment for me assurter
their comfort , and they have not spoken of any sting . I am disappointed, soincèrement .
I am not telling you this for compensation or bad publicity, I have told you the truth of what I know. What
you chose to do with it is up to you. I'll say no more on the subject.
