Well, tonight it feels like we've had her for years!
|My handwork almost done|
During the hours of carting bags of rubble, ripping up floorboards etc I was thinking that we certainly are not 'all there' as we say in South Africa.
And the schedule is tight - the roofers want to do the new roof in just over 10 days time
In that time we must finish all the demolishing inside (2 walls must come out) put up the scaffolding and take off the old tiles.
The one thing that has been with us so far is the weather. Almost spring weather in autumn! We've had the most beautiful days so far and we lunch outside in the sun every day.
Making all our aches and pains worthwhile.
And our little hameau (hamlet) is really pretty. Only 6 neighbours and plowed fields around, it nestles between 2 small rivers, the Andelot and the Ancoutay.
We even have a distant view of the Puy du Dôme - our local volcanic mountaintop that is a landmark to many.
