Daddy finally managed to complete the restoration project of our home in Thessalonica, unfortunately with a few obstacles. I did not install a new air-conditioner as planned because the surface outside of the building must be maintained, but the building administration shows reluctance to this serious issue. Daddy also didn’t have the time to connect the radiators, which needed to be maintained.

A few days ago, another issue popped up, the Jacuzzi Cabin is leaking, and Daddy must change the applied silicone on all the joints. Otherwise, our neighbor, Mr. Andreas, on the fourth floor will have problems, and Daddy doesn’t want that to happen. I will not do it this time because I am exhausted and the time is not enough.

All the work took much time and effort, and often, Daddy was on his way to giving up because there was always something new popping up, but Daddy was thinking about you both, and that gave him energy and inspiration to continue……..

I hoped I would have plenty of time to go on holiday to some beautiful Island in Hellas to rest and recharge my batteries. But not this time!

In any case, Daddy is pleased and satisfied with the result because I did it for you, Anthoula, and Alexandra so that you will have a decent, modern, and clean home to visit in Thessalonica when the time comes. I also promised myself never to buy furniture from IKEA again. They are made with saliva and paper, and the quality has become terrible! Therefore, next time I visit our home in Thessalonica, I will order handmade quality furniture.

I hope the building administration will soon start to maintain the building because it was many years ago. Otherwise, there is a considerable risk that all the work Daddy did will be destroyed again.

Finally, I received the last items for our home on Wednesday, 10th of August, which were not from IKEA. It was a bed sofa, dinner table, and furniture for the bedroom balcony where Daddy was sitting in the morning and drinking his FRAPPE with great pleasure.
