It’s five years this month that we took extended, long service leave and went out to Pierrefeu to paint, build Ikea furniture and get to know the area. The weather was just getting warmer so the Evil Stove wasn’t pressed into service too often. And, as you can see, much of the Ikea furniture work was done outside. Actually, that’s about all I did. T did most of the hard graft with the Allen key while we both donned overalls and painted the house from top to bottom.
It was a wonderful three or so weeks and it was over that time that the house became a home. Albeit a long distance one.
