The Jack and Jill shower room, half grouted.
Just the walls to be tiled here. Russ assures me he'll be finished in a couple of days.
The next photo is of our unexpected visitor a few evenings ago. Nicole and I were watching a DVD (still no TV!) when this little chap appeared from nowhere. He had to be caught in a bucket and returned outside. Still, he was a lot easier to deal with than the mice that appear from time to time!
We have been shopping at the local market, this lovely basket is one of our purchases. We have another similar, full of drying walnuts, hanging in the kitchen.
We bought lots of onions, from which we bottled a batch of onion marmalade,
and we have been drying orange and lemon slices to make mulling spices.
Today we managed to change the headlights on the car to French ones - not without bloodshed and swearing!
Now I just need to get it to a garage for the 'controle technique' test and we'll be closer to getting our French plates.
I'd like you to know that I took my turn lying on the floor under the car too! But I may not have looked as elegant as Nicole does!
