The remains bright and sunny has it has been since mid November and it's set to continue until the end of the month at least....a small chance of some snow flurries in 8 days time but no other precipitation. Ruby and Jasper headed back to the UK on the 28th.
Still mustn't grumble. The weather is allowing progress to be made on the gite. The stove is installed and working, the window reveals and cills are installed, upstairs is decorated and a start has been made on the plumbing.
The pig arc which I built on timber runners nearly 10 years ago, was moved for the first time without a hitch. It's now down in the spinney of birch trees where we plan to put the pigs in the spring. The last part of the big field in front of the house is also finally ours!
New Year was celebrated at Justin and Emily's where a soirée was held. We dined alfresco and boogied to DJ Max (Max Tenuta, Thea's other godfather who is visiting from Otsuni) until the early hours, despite the sub-zero temperatures.
