The doors have gone on the gite today - a secure, water-tight building at last.*
Jim and his digger arrived this morning to dig the hole to bury the new septic tank - never to be seen again - but very important!
|I hope everything is in the right place!|
|The beginning of the pond - water in it already!|
The trees we planted in the autumn are showing signs of spring now...
Nicole has been busy making croissants- they were delicious! The next batch are proving right now, and look just as lovely.
Another shopping trip to Ikea and we came home with a little treat - solar powered mini-lanterns. I don't know how they fell into the basket! They were a bargain, honest Hugh, and look how lovely they look - AND no running costs!
|Hugh in the bushes!|
|Me with a cup of tea in the sunshine.|
When I said "at last" I mean that I am very impatient to see it finished! It is by no means a comment on how long (or not) the builders are taking! It is amazing how much has been done in such a short time. And I'm very happy with it all. There you are Chris - grovel over - we are happy to see it all take shape, thank you for your hard work and patience with me!
