Yippee!

The last strokes of the roller were applied this afternoon. After two and a half months, 230 litres of paint, 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 2 kitchen/dining rooms, 2 lounges, 2 landings, 2 ‘celliers’, a toliet and washroom the painting is done! I do enjoy painting, but there comes a point…and the point had come! Yippee.

On a less positive note, the prospects for our apricot harvest are once again not good. Our 2 trees are always the first to blossom and with the fine weather we’ve had they are bursting into bloom. Only problem is that we had a frost this morning and are likely to have another one tomorrow. As they say round here, the apricots are probably ‘foutus’…

  1. That’s a whole lot of paint! Suppose it’s time to start from the beginning once again?!! Well done to you both – I bet it looks stunning.
    As a reward to you self-sufficiant people, do visit our friend’s Gourmet Touraine site http://frugalgourmet.eu/?p=733 where you’ll find how to purchase inexpensive vanilla pods and associated recipies.
    Hope to bump into you both in April.
    Warmest regards,
    Jim & Sandra

  2. PS I forgot to mention that Sandra and I (along with our daughter and her fella) went to see West Ham v Boro on Monday (1-1). It was great fun sitting amongst the West Ham fans an cheering on the lads. We’d gone to defend and get the draw after two bad defeats – and we did that very well in the 1st hald (though the Hammers deserved to be in front). In the second half we played a lot better and a draw was a fair result – the young acadamy players we are using are maturing, surly we’ll make the play-offs?
