As a treat for Christmas we flew my mum and dad over for the weekend. Thought they would be interested in seeing what we doing. I think it was a bit of a shock as despite all the Grand Design programmes that they have watched I am not sure that they realised quite what we have taken on. Do we for that matter?! It’s a big place and so could be several years before we are completed, can I cope with the disorder????
The weather was glorious that weekend, except the day that we went to the house. We drove cross country over the Corbières hills in thick fog! The rest of the time it was 16C and we were eating lunch outside.
