House Update

What a difference a month makes! Over the past few weeks we have watched the walls go up, been able to walk around upstairs and enjoy the view from our windows, and now the roof is going on.

Remember those wildflower seeds we scattered on bare earth? Now it’s a sea of green punctuated by bright poppies.

And the fruit trees? Cherries. We ate the first ones off the tree last week.

The only problem has been the transport. The train strikes got so bad that we had to abandon a planned visit. We found an alternative route by bus, only to have problems with the car hire. The trains are supposedly back up and running again. Oh, I hope so! I want to be able to focus on the house, not how we’re going to make it to our next meeting.
