Progress

A couple more days progressing the bathroom and entrance. Beam and posts are now up to support the covered entrance and the window opening over the bath is formed...next the roof.

Holidays

A couple of blissful weeks of glorious sunshine with Susie, Jasper, Ruby and Susie's sister Jen, her husband Andrew and their daughter Rosa.

Mostly relaxing, a bit of swimming in the local river, a trip to Turguilla and swimming in the Etang de Reglisse, shopping at the market, local walks, some mushrooming, spotting glow worms and toads and a bit of scything.
Ruby's underwater pictures of fish in the lake

Onions and leeks were harvested, and the first aubergines are ready.
Jasper and I built the start of the next part of the extension for which he received a Djembe drum.

Blog views into 6 figures!

Another lovely break in Totnes with Susie, Jasper and Ruby. Managed to buy some bikes for £10 each from the local dump and after a bit of maintenance we all have fully functional bikes for some family excursions.

Susie and I got away for a day trip to Bath and visit to the fashion museum, calling in at Glastonbury Abbey en route.
The weather has been good and we've managed a few trips to the beach as well as decorating our bedroom.
We're all back to the Pyrenees shortly for some home building and more holiday!

Phew!


Some very long working hours but finally before I left, everywhere was (more or less) watertight. Works continue whilst I'm away with a friend doing the floor slabs and foundations.
