I'd like to start by saying a big thank you to you for following my blog and all the supportive words. I love reading your comments and I love the thought of you being alongside us in our adventures. Sorry if I can't reply to the comments individually at the moment but our internet is very limited.
My early morning routine at the moment is to set the alarm for 6.45am, get up and put the kettle on, put the water heater on in Harvey J, have a cuppa back in the cottage whilst the water heats up, have a shower in Harvey J.....by then it's nearly 8am and the roofers are arriving. A shower usually makes me feel ready to face the world!
We awoke to heavy rain again this morning. The roofers arrived before 8 am today. I assume they wanted to get a good start. Unfortunately the rain delayed them slightly. It wasn't long though and they were removing the felt shingle tiles from the cottage roof.
After lunch, our English neighbour Gail popped by to see us. We had a cup of tea and a chat although it was slight chaos with the electrician threading cables through the ceiling and the roofers hammering on the roof! She invited us to a barbeque on Sunday evening that was being held by an English couple we hadn't met yet. I checked with Chris and said we'd love to go. Even though our wish is to be part of the French community here, it's always good to meet new friends whatever nationality!
By the end of the day, the waterproof membrane had been completed on cottage roof and the whole roof had been marked out with red chalk ready for tiling.
