Our Spanish Dream - Part 28: Keyholders Number 3
The next day the air conditioning engineer arrived to service the units. We told him what was going on and he said his wife was looking for a small job and he would mention it to her. We met up, she was very pleasant, I showed her my check list and she took the job on a trial basis over the winter. Knowing she may not be carrying on beyond that we still met the other lady. She was immaculately turned out and I wondered how she could keep her perfect nails so good when she loved cleaning, she was very professional and we liked her. We explained that we had taken on someone over the winter but would like to keep her details in case it didn’t work out.
Our new keyholder was great for two seasons, but a change in her circumstances seriously dropped us in at the deep end when she had to move on short notice out of the area with her husband’s job in December 2013. She was so embarrassed about leaving us in the lurch she just left most of the keys in the house, locked up, sent us an email and posted the front door key back to us! So in January 2014 we were again keyholder-less with a house in Spain and us in the UK!
