We’ve arrived to gorgeous weather. It’s going to take us some time to acclimatise, although we have been having a bit of a heat wave back home in Blighty too. It’s all hands on deck today with the building work as we have friends coming to stay for a week on Thursday. We need to be sleeping in the new bedroom in the extension. So it’s a case of the loo being fitted now, painting being done and then a temporary wash basin going in as well.
We’ve been madly mowing and strimming. My son spent most of the first day we were here mowing the lawn as he was so board. The minute we arrive he’s like, “what are we going to do” and we are like “we’ve just driven for 18 hours we want to snooze and do nothing”. Bit of a miss-match going on.
All the plants that I put in at Easter have died and gone from this:
We will probably have to invest in some sort of watering system if we want to plant again or make sure we plant in October/November. Although, the garden centres don’t have the same selection of plants at that time of year.
The exterior of the extension is now completed apart from the crépi. The interior is still a work in progress.
Paul is enjoying the new view from the bedroom window.
Now we need to choose flooring and tiles. Allons-y!
