Went to see this grange across the valley in Pentussa with Sandra yesterday. Its one of a handful of thatched buildings in the ariege. Although the detail at the junction of the stepped gable and the thatch is a bit odd, I've decided to replace my roof with thatch rather than slate (it was thatched until about 30 years ago). Stage one is to move the Rayburn chimney to outside the starts soon.

Spent today recommencing the clearing of fields 3 and 4. Back to a regime of 2 hours scything a day until the weather deteriorates.

Talking of weather it was 34 degrees a few days ago.
