Well, this Monday started out in anticipation !
We thought the delivery of the beams and tiles for the roof will arrive this morning.
Back again at 13h30 and by 14h30 the truck arrived.
Now as this is in a tiny hamlet, with small streets, the only way the driver thought he could maneuver was to put the nose of the truck in the field opposite the house.
The said field is slowly but surely showing signs of delicious green growth.
|The wall after the departure of the truck!|
Needless to say, the truck with a couple of tons on its back could not reverse out of the field - a neighbour came along with his tiny tractor - the truck did not move - only leaned on another neighbours' wall .
3 hours later, he did download the tiles and beams and had to drive through the field to get out and this time the tiny little tractor had to do the last bit of pulling.
So now we have so many excuses to do to new neighbours not yet formally met and repairs - tomorrow we're going over with Bubbly, Red Wine and many a humble bow!
|O happy with everything IN the courtyard !|
This is what life's about - you plan one thing, another happens!
But hey, it's all about sharing and hopefully this sharing process will bring us closer to our new neighbours!
