Hello Dear Reader,
We’re back in beautiful blighty, had a Sunday roast, plated up meals for tomorrow, picked the chicken clean and made a pie. Ironed clothes for work tomorrow.
Huelgoat can wait for a couple of months. When we return, we’ll have a fully functioning wood stove and we can finish work on the downstairs. Our next economic target is to save up for a set of stairs with a right hand turn and some walling material including insulation. It’ll then join up the three floors to make it into one four bedroom house. It’s a big challenge but we always aim to complete the big structural stuff first and leave the pretty things for another day.
For now, here’s some Huelgoat photographs. When you visit somewhere, you get to see the main stuff, the money shots you’d find on postcards but it’s only when you live somewhere that you get to see the workings in the backstreets.
Let me walk you around my village. Chapel on the hill….at the end of my rue.
Eyes left, the one way system we drive round.
Parking for the locals.
Road of heaven.
Chapel of our lady in heaven.
La Poste. They love my dogs! When we walk them in the mornings, the posties are arriving for work and they’ve all snuggled the dogs.
Back to money saving normality, small budgets and big savings. It might seem like a big sacrifice to plan for retirement now but it’s worth all the work to us.
Love Froogs xxxxx
