House-sitting in Burgau

Little villa at the bottom from the top of the hill

Belated Happy New Year everyone!

Well we have been busy – not. Winter descended upon us for one week before Christmas, with torrential rain and storms. Good job we were now established in our housesit. Using Workaway again we found a lovely lady named Jutta who was in need of someone to look after her house and dogs over the Xmas period. Step forward ladies!

The fire was stoked in the evenings and after the initial week the sun shone upon the righteous. We are now here until the end of the month as Jutta has kindly agreed for us to stay parked on her land. The days now consist of dog-walking along the coast and sunbathing on the loungers whilst attempting some amateur twitching or reading.

It has been lovely staying in one place for the last 4 weeks, and it has given me a chance to carry out some Gurty love. The cushion covers are now complete, a combination of hand sewing and using Shar’s hand Singer sewing machine. We are now on the hunt for some material for the bottom cushions to complete the look. There is lots of elephant material left and the creative juices are flowing, so watch this space.

Elephantastic – love it!

  1. Good to see you enjoying the Algarve. We have walked along the cliffs from Praia do Luz to Burgau lots of times. Had coffee in the little cafe on the beach.
