PostSubject: House Finished and Life in General.   Wed Aug 22, 2012 4:32 am

Hello All

Its Darrell, sorry we have not been on here much entering into debates etc but we do keep a close eye on all topics, the reason really for us not being on here is that we have been on the last big push to finish the house of completely.

I have been going back to the UK every year for the last 3 years to do 3 months work, all of this money then goes into the house, as I am lucky enough to be getting an Army pension each month.

I have also taken back with me each year 5 lads from the village to work, this has changed their lives and has helped us to fit into the village even more than normal.

It has allowed them to buy and do things for their families that normally would have taken a long time to save for.

Life is very good for us at the moment and I hope it will continue for a long time, things can be good here in Bulgaria, and you can achieve a lot as long as you do your home work, and are prepared to try and fit in.

I would like to try and put some photos on here of the finished house, if someone could help me do that I would be very grateful, as I stood back and looked at the house and barn today and felt a small tinge of satisfaction and would just like to share this with some of the members if that would be okay.

Hi Darrell

Many thanks for the update.

If you send your photos by e-mail to me or Ashley (Admin), then we can add them here for you.

Congratulations on finishing your house Darrell. We are half way though what you have done and still battling at it every day whilst the weather allows us the privilege of working on the house before the cold weather sets in. You name it and we have done it or it is on the exhaustive list to get done. We arrived here at the end of February and have been working on the house ever since, with short breaks here and there, it will make my day as well to look at the house when it is finished with a lot of satisfaction. Your five lads must have had a shock when they first went to the UK and I am sure it has changed their lives, well done.

Hey Darrell

Good to have you back and well done on finishing the house like everyone else we are looking forward to seeing the photos. Also excellent work with the 5 boys I bet that has really made a huge difference to their lives. How did you go about that, is there much paperwork involved etc as this might be something I could investigate for the older children at the orphanage when you get a moment would you pm the details to me please g Thanks

Don't know you got on with the Bulgarian paint Darrell, but in my experience of painting oodles of windows OH, FOR SOME DULUX GLOSS PAINT. Had managed to get some Dulux when I started the windows, but soon ran out and so did Praktiker and I had to use some Bulgarian gloss paint, but a poor substitute!! Shame.

Hope these come out, we have only a few small jobs to do, hope you like the end product as much as we do.
