Springing into Action? Oh yes please!


There is movement. Apparently work is about to commence on the roof, and not just sometime soon, but this Monday. I am as astounded as I am excited. Hard though it is to imagine the house without the interior waterfall, I also wonder if this might run for a while yet – I mean, it’s all very ‘sudden’ in contrast to the frustration of the last few months. I am not complaining because this is the beginning of the rebirth of the house

Coincidentally I was given an unexpected opportunity to get some more of my junk down there if I had it packed by yesterday, so this was Thursday’s priority, and I have booked a flight. It all fell into place rather well. Baz is understandably jealous and he feels more than a little second-best to my the house. He noticed that I labelled all the boxes with my name rather than our names. I didn’t mean anything by it!

Instead of sleeping in a roofless house, I have succumbed to Plan B (the very comfortable apartment I rented last time) because I can claw back some money by eating in and on heating. And because having a bath and the privacy of a working toilet is just irresistible


This time next week I intend to be knee-deep in wallpaper strippings and I can barely wait

  1. This seems to be the French way – total silence and then a message to say they are starting immediately. Quite disconcerting but in a good way 🙂 Enjoy the trip – I look forward to your updates. And enjoy that chambre d’hotes too …. bath and loo is absolutely essential for keeping a clear head for work 🙂

      1. She’s fine – basking in all the attention she got for putting paw to keyboard! I should think you will be fully occupied with the house but if you get a chance to run too there’s a double excuse for a wallow!

  2. That’s so exciting, something positive happening and a chance to really get stuck in. I am so happy for you

    Perfect timing too, the sheer heat of the upcoming summer will dry out everything beautifully.

    I empathise with Baz, it must be tough for him ; Trev went to Campagne once without me and I was quite put out…and I am ashamed to admit it, but each time he suggests hopping over without me I get JEALOUS
