On y va (aka time out)
Well, a break away in France has just come at the right time. We lost another wall this week when Darren suggested rebuilding one which wasn't very straight. So yet more brick dust. As the photos show, the shower room and bathroom are one with a bath and basin, just not yet plumbed in! Also part of the floor is up again but one day, hopefully soon, they will be 2 beautiful rooms.
Then on Friday morning, Steve (the man in charge) had a call to say that the kitchen units had been dispatched. This was an error as we are not yet ready for them but nevertheless we took them so, as you will see above, we have a kitchen but it's still in boxes in the lounge. This has reduced our living space to a very cramped, extremely dusty dining room. So it is with great relief that I am sitting in Phil and Shelagh's lovely house in Boissy, nursing a sore throat and a hacking cough. But it's lovely - no dust, no work going on, hot water, central heating, a lovely view of the garden with a dusting of snow and peace. Don't get me wrong, I am delighted to be getting all the work done in the house and the builders are a great team of nice people. It's just lovely to be having a break away from it all.
Back home, everything is under sheets, hopefully the plasterers will be in soon and the door from the kitchen to the lounge will get knocked through while we are not there to experience yet more dust. In the meantime - Vive La France!
