Une belle aventure

Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

A little rain….and a fear of heights

Leave a comment

So a few weeks ago, before it all started turning cold cold cold we had a bit of rain…well a lot actually and the area was flooded. It seems like nothing happens by halves here. It’s all kind of “massive scale”.
So the usual happened: Our cellar was flooded. But this time, as we had previously dug a lovely hole, we were able to use the pump. Yay!

And with the help of our neighbours Benjamin and Hubert we finally located our main drain! Hourray. πŸ˜‰

And we also decided to fix the front gutter….However we completely underestimated how high it was and the fact that neither of us was very good with heights….

So we were very very lucky when Hubert drove past and said “Ha the gutter, should only take a couple of minutes”. Well that is if you do manage to climb the ladder I replied. “Let me do it!” He said. So he saved our day and hardly even held onto the ladder!

Definitely needed replacing.

I caught Matt up a ladder the other day conquering his fear.
