Sunday 10th May – Hayloft Refurbishment Completed

          OK, so I was planning to post this blog last night. I had started to write the text yesterday morning and had every intention to upload it in the evening when we had updated some photos on the website. However, as the weather was so fantastic mid-afternoon we thought we’d…

Sunday 26th April

Happy Sunday all. Sadly, the amazing weather we have enjoyed for the last couple of weeks has finally broken and it has been damp and showery for the last couple of days. While not as appealing for BBQ’ing it will be great for the garden.   It is amazing how quickly things grow here with the…

BBQ

Sunday 19th April – Week 12

The end of another busy and productive week when we have achieved some real successes and not just in the redevelopment of the gîtes. Firstly, we have received a Certificate of Conformity for our car from VW France which allows us to progress its registration here. There was some discussion as to whether a Certificate…

Sunday 12th April – Week 11

I can’t believe Easter was only last week – so much has happened it seems like it was weeks ago! I know I posted last week’s blog on Monday evening but I purposely left out the activities we had on Easter Monday.  You may remember the ladies of the Comité des Fêtes asked if we…

Sunday 5th April (I know!) – Week 10

Well my wish for the weather to improve at the end of last week’s blog has come good and this Easter weekend has been bathed in wonderful sunshine. Apologies (again!!) for not posting this yesterday as I usually do on a Sunday but, as it was Easter and today is a public holiday, it’s sort…

Sunday 29th March – Week 9

So, as suspected in last week’s blog this week has principally been about painting – lots of painting. Dave has continued to focus on his gym completing the ceiling in white and wall panelling in a dark grey. It looks fabulous but he won’t allow me to post a photograph until he has it ‘furnished’…

Sunday 22 March 2015 – Week 8

Sunday again – the weeks seem to pass incredibly quickly and this week, despite working hard every day, is the first I look back on and think we haven’t achieved much – mostly because we have worked on the same things we had started before.  We completed the first coat of paint in all rooms…

Sunday 15th March 2015 – Week 7

  Firstly, apologies for not posting my blog last week and to the, literally, ones of my readers who seemed to miss it. I’m glad there is someone who looks forward to hearing about the goings on at Kergudon 🙂 The reason I didn’t blog is not, as the more cynical of you may believe,…

Sunday 01 March – Week 5

Happy March! So it is now officially spring – on the meteorological calendar anyway – and we are having some very spring like weather here with a mixture of clear sunny days and warm wet ones. Progress continues much as it did last week (are we getting into a routine at last!) with dry days…
