Une belle aventure

Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

Once upon a time in April 2015

Matt regained his beloved garage, he just had to clear it first! lol
Removing those beams by himself took a little ingenuity and planning. Out into the garden they went.

Our favourite builders (which are actually back next week) left us to clear the upstairs. Fair enough guys, we did agree we would do it. Still there were a rather large amount of stones to move….where to though? Well the back garden and as for the rubble, we decided to store it in one of those fantastic orange bags, to be used for hardcore in the floor for the back room.

Matt also found Sputnik-1! 😉

Getting all the stones down ‘Randle’s style’! ….and another trip to the dump.

The stones made their way to the back garden and then we had to think what to do with all of them, they found their place around the bath. Perfect!

Both Saf and Rhys were ill. It is pretty cool though that we don’t have to argue and fight anymore as to who would take time off to look after them as we’re actually both here!

They both caught colds later on in the month, we introduced them to this. 😉

We (well Matt) have started cutting our firewood and will be spending most of May there. Some trees have fallen in some really awkward places and Matt got told off (in a nice way) for not asking for help to move the trees up (as some are in a ditch). How are we to know! Next year can only be easier.

Matt carried on a bit more with some painting.

House-wise we carried on with a few jobs, besides the shower. Since we had installed the second electricity box for the hot water tank, we were also able to connect the radiator and add some plugs in Rhys’ bedroom. We actually finished off that room, all painted and floor treated. I must say that it’s a pretty good feeling to actually finish off a room completely. This also meant that we were able to move in…like the olden’ days…all in the same room. And so far it’s working out fine. 😉
