La Belle Vie en France

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

This week has been much slower than normal here in the sunny Correze. The weather has been glorious considering that it’s the end of November and beautiful clear skies plus nice and warm (15-18℃). But looking at the weather forecast it looks like this may be coming to an end as we enter December! I am sure there will be some more glorious winter dates to come……this is the Correze after all.

It’s been a busier week in the workshop than normal after installing the cat flaps and making signs informing the locals that there are kittens about and to drive slowly. The garden got a new bench and makes a great addition especially when tea breaks come. We also have been making bird boxes for the local wildlife. Mandy’s new roses also arrived which meant four new planters had to be made. The wood for our shutters has finally been milled to the right thickness, however work on them might start in the new year. Our friend Steve who owns a campsite with his wife Sharron (which we stayed at before) kindly agreed to mill them for us. Check out their website if you are thinking of visiting this part of the world, you won’t be disappointed we weren’t! For those who like workshops, you should check out Steve’s! Workshop envy.

The cat flaps are in and it has taken the cats a while to pluck up the courage to wonder out, today they ventured into the pig style (Man Cave) and the barn and had great fun running across the roof (attic) of the house. This was somewhat confusing for the dogs who could hear footsteps above them but couldn’t understand what was making the noise.

The three dogs and cats are getting along very well together and are often found snuggled up on the sofa or in front of the fire. They have really taken with each other. The animals are all over our Facebook page so why not go and check them out.

As is customary in our bloc, for now it’s time to hang up the keyboard, sit back, relax and have another bottle of my favourite beer. 

We can also be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. So, if you like what you read and see, gives us a like, follow or tweet!!

Thank you
