A busy week

 

What a busy week we had…

Our dear friends Paul and James popped over to see us, flying back with Kev from London for the weekend, bless them i think they were heading for some sunshine, but unfortunatley our weather has been very similar to the UK of late, rain, rain and yes more rain. But that didn’t stop us getting out there and showing them around.

Wellies are our staple footwear at the moment and we have acumulated a range of sizes ready for any visitors.

Saturday night was steak and red wine night and after a delicious meal cooked by Kev and a few bottles of the local red stuff, we face timed our friend Jacks back in London and it looks like she had already had a few bottles of the red stuff herself!!!!!

After a fabulous weekend the boys headed back to London for a detox and Kev headed for India.

I had a busy few days clearing up and decorating and then on Friday our new windows arrived.

It didn’t take us long to start knocking out the old ones, the first to go in was in Marion and Ian’s spare bedroom.

Give Kev a power tool and he can turn his hand to anything…..

Ta Dah and here it is our first window in place, we loved our original windows but they let so much cold air in so they had to go but they will be recycled as Kev is going to make a green house for me.

The dark grey wooden frames look lovely, and yes the room was so much warmer.

Then on Saturday we headed for the Aveyrone to look at a antique fireplace for our kitchen.

Last monday we had visited Laurent the Mares son in laws antique showroom and fell in love with his wood burning stove, it was an origional Godin Colonial, he told us about a great website a bit like ebay called “Bon Coin” which means good corner. After a bit of searching we found a few of them and the best was the one in the Aveyrone.

Luckily the one we saw was in fabulous condition so we bought it there and then and as soon as we got home it was put in place and a fire lit.
