Roger the Roofer returns!

A neighbour popped by today. She seemed a little bemused. ‘Was that there when I came the other day’? she asked….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…indeed it wasn’t!  Roger doesn’t hang about. He has reused the old beams that came out of the barn (which were originally earmarked for firewood!) to make a little house over the wine press. The laths have gone on today, next step the tiles (again reclaimed from the farm). In fact the only thing that has cost any money in the whole affair is the paint (and being french paint it is expensive!). Here is the R-t-R himself in action…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It has been a beautiful day today. 23 degrees in the shade – not bad for October 5th. I took advantage this afternoon to get out on my bike and enjoy the warm autumn sunshine. And this evening we sat out ’til 8.30 supping a glass or two of wine with neighbours…without being cold! Un ete indien it is indeed!
