Painting “The forth bridge”……..

Or at least that’s what it feels like and I’ve only done the Kitchen so far or as Steph is keen to remind me, partially done as all the door frames and skirting need doing as well. Lots of training sessions from our friend and decorating guru Mr G are making me an expert in matters such as ‘cutting in’ and appreciating the benefits of clever paint brushes I didn’t even know existed!

Dinner time and the conversation turns to Dulux and Sandtex. No wonder I’m not there!

So we have now been at our Chambre d’hôte to be, La Maison Cèdre, for six weeks and there are still parts of Prayssac we have yet to discover. We are however on first name terms with most of the staff at the local DIY store.

Some interesting visits have been made there….it was quite entertaining watching Mr G explain that we wanted some ‘Chicken Wire!’ I stayed well out of that one as impressions are not my forte. Just as well we found some in the basement in the end.

Steph too has found an undiscovered painting talent and is in charge of returning the terrace posts and railings to their former glory or perhaps even better.

The picture below shows her preparing a small area of fence revealed when the hedge was cut back.

Anyway, I think I will take advantage of some fresher air and this strange wet stuff that’s trickling from the sky and head for the kitchen. Still some red paint looking for a permanent home.

Anyone fancy a ‘decorating’ holiday??

PS…It’s stopped raining. Blink, and you’ve missed it🌦

    Hi Steph. It looks like it coming along nicely. You look really well. The French climate is obviously agreeing with you. Can’t believe it’s 6 weeks already. Time goes so quickly doesn’t it. Caroline said she had a lovely time when she saw you whilst she was on holiday. We would love to come over next year and see you. Keep in touch won’t you.. Kim. X

      Hi Kim, The time is flying by. We are really busy as there is so much to do it can be difficult to know what to do first, but we are certainly working “at pace!”. I think we are making good progress but some jobs have turned out to be bigger than we expected. It would be lovely to see you next year we are on target to open next spring. M et Mme T XX
