We had to get up several times a night and pump it back up again. Since my DH is heavier than I am, his side of the bed kept going down, and he would wind up on the concrete, while my side went way up in the air. Then, our biggest Newfoundland jumped on the bed in the middle and catapulted me up into the air and over to land on top of my poor husband, who was already flat on the concrete floor. So, we built a bed, and with a bed, a shower, two bathroom sinks, and four toilets (one in each bathroom, and two for the dogs water bowls) we are pretty much okay. I do wish we had a stove...

    OMG I just laughed my arse off at the mental images I'm having of this! We moved into our house when we had a kitchen, 1 toilet, 1 shower and we used a dreaded inflatable bed as well! Not such a clever idea when one has pets :) Like yourself, every night was a struggle and DH always ended up closest to the ground. Although, he would sleep through a hurricane, so it was up to myself to pump the bed back up since a pin would wake me!

    I'm loving the pics and stories, my jealousy levels are at a serious high

    Add Wales to the list, and I'm right with you! Incredible places and amazing people, all.

    I just wanted to add a bit about our friend who broke his back by falling off the staging. We just went on a dive and he came along...

    Here is our boat captain; a bit long in the tooth, but experienced....


    ...and here is our friend, stepping into the water to go diving in the cold North Atlantic. He says he is 100%, but we think he is more like 99% back to normal.


    Really good to see him back!

    So glad that your friend is recovering so well
    How could I have missed Wales off my list - I'm best part welsh by ancestry though I've never lived there myself!!!

    See? Now do you understand why I leave Spain each year to summer in Maine?

    Captain Evil, just came across this thread. I have loved reading about your house adventure. Whereabouts are you? We summer in the Kennebec county lake region (think On Golden Pond) at a cottage that's been in the family for more than 100 years and 6 generations. Maine is definitely a special place...
