Hello Dear Reader,
We cut the grass today and finished taking the laurel mountain of cuttings to the dechetterie. It’s totally free, at our version of this in Cornwall, you have to pay to take certain waste, such as rubble. You don’t pay here. We must have been to dechetterie five times but it’s all part of getting this place habitable.
I must remind myself that all this work will be worth it as when it’s done, we can come here, or even you might come here and just enjoy the place. It’s a lot of hard work at the moment but one day, it’ll be done.
DB has been amazing. I’ve painted the windows and frames again. It takes several coats of paint to get a good finish. I’ve also repainted the walls and skirting boards. DB is constructing the stairs and has made it to the turn in the stairs…..the complicated bit! He powers on.
Here’s another photo from Monday of the bike race around our village.
Apparently, we’re set for warmer weather. I’m just loving having time off with DB in this beautiful place, enjoying fresh food, walks with the dogs and putting my feet up in the evening.
Love Froogs xxxx
