Concise Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary © 2009 Oxford University Press:
fêlé (familier), ~e /fɛle/
  1. adjective (fou) cracked (familier) (jamais épith).
  1. noun, masculine, feminine loony (familier);
So here you go - I found the word that you can apply to us - in French - Fêlé ! English translation - cracked - loony! (en vir my Afrikaanse vrinne - sommer mal man - in die bol gepik)

This must be it as nobody in their right mind will be chipping cement off walls 6 hours per day !
Wednesday was exactly 2 weeks that we've started on Ugly Betty's renovation.

It actually feels like 2 years!

Every morning we start with one hour of carting all the rubble we've chipped off the day before to the trailar - this allready is quite an excercise!

And then we just move in and chip chip chip, or as O has been doing the last few days, taking a couple of century's old wall down stone by stone. (I then of course cart all the lime sement and stones out into the garden)

But the new open plan lounge, dining room kitchen is slowly but surely taking form - kind of a new space being born out of 3 poky rooms. 

And this adventure will continue......

  3. Lynn,
    Fêlé? Non! Vous etes brilliant! You and O are artists. This is just one more creation. It's the music of your life my friend and we are so happy to a part of it.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Amazing - your energy and drive - doubtless another triumph looming. Can't wait to see it in June.
