Now for plastering, followed by a willing team of friends for a ' roller party' to do the painting.
Twice we have blown the fuses (so far) once when the plumber drilled through a cable, and once when a power- tool overloaded the system - ah well - we learn!
The term 'Ciga Ciga' - ( slowly slowly) is well used in Cyprus, as work simply HAS to stop at regular intervals for coffee and a chat, and with a coffee house opposite - well, what can you do???
It's truly wonderful to be ' back' in the heart of the village - all the time guys pop in to see progress, offer advice and tell stories about their memories of the old building, which was previously a shop / coffee shop, which some say is over 100 yrs old.
We are receiving lots of encouragement and support from villagers - the gallery being seen as a welcome addition to Kouklia attractions.
There is still much to be done - but no hurry - it's an interesting journey and will be well worth it.
I'm looking forward now to the girlie / aesthetic part - when I can get really involved and stuck in !!!
