A BIT MORE PROGRESS
Another little corner of the house is gradually coming together - the old door to the new bedroom in the attic has been painted (but not the final coat, yet) and the walls have been newly-plastered, but deliberately not to a smooth finish. The best bits of original stone have been left exposed. They will be highlighted with something I've forgotten the name of, and the plastered bits will be painted white. The rest of this landing is in the process of being plaster-boarded. In one of the photos you can see how the internal walls are constructed using steels instead of timbers.
I live in France with my husband who works in construction and renovation. I work from home as an internet researcher and freelance writer. I have two grown up sons; they each have lovely wives and between them have provided me with four gorgeous grandchildren, a boy aged 11, and three girls, one aged 8, one who will be two in August, and her new sister who is just three weeks old.
I am part of an online knitting group which makes items for all sorts of charities, from preemie babies to animal rescue centres. Details of our group - and all the relevant info for anyone who wants to join us - is in this blog.
