A week ago I did something very stupid, I went outside, in the dark to close the shutters, very tired after a day of painting. I didn't have the torch with me, and I didn't have a phone in my pocket, which I am under orders to have at all times. The result was to trip over this

|It was much worse than it looks!|
More interestingly, lots of things have changed over the last week. The electrician, Jeremy, has finished for now. Just a few bits to do when the roof at the back comes off later on, and of course, the gite when that's ready for him. It is going to be very quiet in the house without his radio and singing! We now have lights everywhere, switches in sensible places, hot water, tv, and more sockets than I'm ever going to need. (Not really - give me a socket and I can find something to plug into it! I've almost finished putting French plugs onto all our appliances) Just a little grouting to do in one bathroom, and two days of plastering to finish off bits here and there. So I'm all on my own now with a paint brush and roller! Acres of white emulsion to be applied, which doesn't show up well in photos. But things are being boxed in and covered up...

Having finished inside the house though, Russ and Alex have moved outside to the renovation of the gite.

So we're on track to be up and running as a business by the spring, providing I manage to avoid any more accidents!
