What's been happening this week? The electrician has finished the first fix.
Which means that we can start wrapping the rooms up in brown paper.
Or lining them with teddy bears. Your bedroom wall has been pointed.
The balustrades have been fitted.
Him Outdoors has been playing with frames for the plasterboard and lining them with cork.
A man came and fitted the only handle that will fit on the tiny space left on the door frame.
And spring has arrived (swallows this afternoon.)
And the neighbour's plum tree.
Yesterday we had drinks with our Parisian neighbours. We had a form to fill in and they spent ages discussing the exact wording necessary. They couldn't decide whether we were doing a 'renovation totale, or a totale renovation'. If they don't know what hope have the rest of us. There was also huge discussion about what a difference it made if you said 'ce matin, il faisait beau' rather than 'il faisait beau, ce matin'. The most important thing comes first ?????????? Beyond me.
