Symi Dream - Living on a Greek island

Heading into the weekend with lovely warm weather but not a lot of news. Anyone following the waterworks debacle at our house will be interested to know that the leaking tank is now fixed thanks to Symi Property Services. I won’t summarise the water problems as they’ve been going on for nearly a year now, but this (hopefully) last one concerned the ‘temporary’ plastic tank the landlord’s ‘mastoras’ had put on the bathroom roof. He’d put it straight down over water pipes that were themselves over a concrete trough. The bottom of the tank had been pierced by one of the pipe’s connecting nuts, and the bottom of the tank was bowing under the weight of water. Anyway… SPS were here yesterday and sorted all of that out, and now, we are leak-free for the first time since sometime in the summer. I’ll celebrate with some random photos from the other day…
