At the end of the day

Phew, what a day today has been. I have been hard at work for most of it, finishing clearing out the wardrobe, sorting clothes, then moving on to crates of bedding to do more of the same – then  washing long-stored items to freshen them before passing them on. Mr L has been painting the front room walls and thinking about the MOT and Vincent’s shock absorbers. He also fitted a replacement for the new fog lamp that he broke in fitting it earlier this week. Now we have two new foggers and a spare to carry with us.

Lots of stuff has gone out of the door today. I even reached the stage of selling some of the crates that had been housing it all. Lots of lovely progress.

Unfortunately our buyers are making less headway and are coming across the kind of snags that lurk there, awaiting the unsuspecting property purchaser. They are keeping in touch though and giving all the signs of being committed. It is early days yet but it does look like dates may slip. This is OK, our solicitor believes that we can go to France after doing most of our end and then any extra signing can be done by post.

After all my hard work today I was able to sit down at tea time with scarcely a qualm as I tucked into my jacket spud with cheese and bacon and ratatouille. I think that I may even have earned the beer that went with it.

Feeling really grubby after all that work. I think that a soak in the bath may be in order. There won’t be all that many more of those to look forward to, I suppose.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
