Hope all is well with everyone and that you are all keeping safe.
Well this week has been full on busy week for Sun-Shine Cleaning Services, we have been just about everywhere this week, we have covered lots of miles but been to some lovely places and met some really nice people.
On Monday it was a Holiday here in Spain so not a lot was open or going on, seems like Spain comes to a standstill on holiday days, this allowed us to spend the day at home. Not sitting idle, doing paperwork and marketing stuff - seems never ending sometimes!
On Tuesday we had to go to Alicante with our friend Ana to complete our residencia. We were told to take a passport size photo with us, Phil tried on the computer to find a template but with no success so we started the day having our photo taken at a post office in Villamarin, after that headed out to pick Ana up then the drive to Alicante! We got there with 5 minutes to spare before our appointment! We were only in with the officers 5 minutes although at first, they didn’t want to accept the passport pictures we had taken for 8 euros due to them being ‘poor quality’! 8 euros for two pictures taken from the guys mobile phone and printed out! Lesson learnt!
On Wednesday we had a job on in La Zenia for a lovely couple with a large villa! Took around 3 hours but we were very pleased with the finished work and more importantly, so was the client.
Thursday we were in Ciadad Quesada, this is a regular booking to clean another large villa for a lovely couple and they’re little dog! The dog is a rescue dog and shy around people, he’s not used to us yet but he’s getting there and in time we’re sure we will be giving hugs and cuddles!
Friday saw us head to Torrevieja to do deep clean for one of our regular customers, We only got half way (30 minute drive) when someone….. that would be Phil, remembered he hadn’t brought the key! Back home then to collect them! It was a long, hard day and it’s still not finished, we’re back next week to complete the job! Looking good though even if I say so myself!
On Saturday we went to another clients to do a check on one of our key holding villas, this involves checking the property, meter readings, water flushing, quick clean and sweep and checking mail boxes. A lovely property indeed…
All in all we have been all over this week. I have even had a go at driving our car today, must say I feel like am learning to drive again! I don’t think I’m ready for roads yet lol…. think Phil will agree too. Just seems harder than it looks driving and changing gear with the right hand! Guess I’ll get used to it in time though!
Finally, We’ve have our fights changed by Ryanair, we were due to fly to the UK on 23rd December to see my Dad, they have changes the flight to the 20th so we have ended up with 2 more days with him all being well and that we can get out there, we just have to see what Boris has to say closer to the time.
Anyway, take care everyone! Stay Safe!
