Feeling at home

Although we have the internet, the signal is too weak for my studio. I have to come into the living room to get online.  As you can see, we are settling in. We have furniture, a good French book, a fire that we don't use at the moment, and a small vegetable garden. We are current'y working on the bread oven which was completely overgrown and dangerous.

Bev is proud of her courgettes.

The Bread Oven...slightly over-grown.

And looking dangerous.

 The back with the stack dismantled and back of the fire exposed. It took days to get rid of the bramble and ivy and just a few hours to dismantle the stack and stone at the back of the fire...thanks to the help from David and Robin.

About Time...

In France it's all about time. On their part the more time the better. I guess it's a pace I should get used to.  All these weeks just for full blown internet and phone to arrive.

We did have an Orange Domino which will never receive any awards from me. It was completely oversold and was a little better than useless.  As a grumpy old man I could say they even lied about it's capabilities, but the exceptionally good weather has rendered me mute and devoid of intolerance. Resignation and an understanding smile see the days conclude with contentment and total peace.

We are having the time of our lives.  Looking forward to touching base with everyone.
