A long day in Toulouse yesterday getting the last furnishings for the gite and a panic when we couldn't find a door for the shower! Although the websites of Lapeyre and Castorama both showed that they had doors available the reality on turning up was that we would have to order and wait 4 weeks! At last an evening trip to bricodepot in Pamiers saved the day.
Today Susie has started furnishing the inside whilst I built the terrace and installed the shower door.
A rare sighting indeed today as an Egyptian Vulture circled overhead! We also saw a Hoopoe last week which is quite early in the year.

Colours at last...two coats of limewash in the main downstairs room (and some nasty lime burns for my hands). The stairs have handrails and balustrades and cupboards and bathrooms are painted and tiled. A big thanks to Phil who finished the plasterboard jointing whilst I was away in the UK for a few days.
