La Belle Vie en France

Our journey into purchasing and rennovating our fermette in the South West of France

Well that was a really quick 17 days! So much has been done around the house and we have seemed to lost track of time. So where to begin, well let’s start with the weather. The permanent sunshine and hot sunny days now seem as distant memory after the last week of cold weather and rain. Autumn has definitely arrived in France and is looking glorious in all its autumnal glory despite the rain, which makes the area we live very muddy as it’s a rural spot we have chosen to relocate to.

The last of the boxes have finally been unpacked and the contents have found their resting home for now, until we decide that they need to be somewhere else. So, we have now officially move in! As all is unpacked. Out in the garden, some more planters and an herb planter have been made and planted up, the garden is starting to come along nicely with a beautiful mix of plants flowering throughout the year. That’s the plan, let’s see what mother nature decides to do. The front of the house has had a small make over with some azalea’s (beautiful white and pink) along the fence line.

Meanwhile in the barn, the mezzanine floor has been replaced. Now we have a more stable area to store garden furniture etc without having the gauntlet of standing on a floorboard without going through it. This has also generated some extra space for storage, which I am sure will be utilised at some point. Underneath the mezzanine, in the old piggery that is half way through being cleared out so the man cave come workshop can be fully set up. Which I am sure will be put to good use.

So, for now it’s time to hang up the keyboard, sit back, relax and have another bottle of my favourite beer.

    Wow, you’ve done so much already. But make sure you don’t maintain this pace and take time to relax too – we don’t want to hear that one or both of you has burnt out. Take a leaf out of the dog’s books and pick a chair to curl up in xxxx
