Not long now!

Hi there!

I want to let you into a little secret!

We going to be back in Brittany very very soon!!

Here's some of the things we are hoping to achieve this visit. We're not necessarily expecting to complete all of them but it's good to have a few goals!

We are borrowing those sweet little goats again! They are going to be busy doing some important munching on the brambles at the corner of the barn..........

 .......with the added benefit that this will hopefully discourage the snakes from this area!

We want to clear the branches from the side of the barn:

Install a permanent electricity connection, a 'branchement définitif', with the help of our electrician....

Construct and install a new sink unit in the kitchen so that the washing machine can fit against the wall:

Fit our new outside light:

Re-plumb the sink into the downstairs cloakroom (toilet):

Paint the living room ceiling and walls:

Insulate the roof in the smaller bedroom, add panelling, decorate and add laminate flooring:

Of course our fur babies, Max and Spencer, will be with us too!

I can't wait to be in the beautiful French countryside!

See you soon!
