Life in Culebrón is a disconnected series of pieces about the banal and ordinary of everyday life in an inland Alicante village seen from my very British perspective.

Smashing up the house: Part II

I got the silicone so I could fasten the glass in. Unfortunately I stood on the piece of glass and smashed it. I sorted it in the end though.

I sorted the doors too. Two hours of filing, which seems to have damaged my hand quite badly so that I now have no grip and reduced sensation in three fingers, finally removed enough metal for the door to close. I couldn't face filing down the second door and I removed the tape. Then I had a brainwave and put the tape on the other face of the doorpost. It worked fine. What a lot of time I wasted.
