After spending our first evening over here trying to heat the place up (in February it gets cold at night – but warm during the day – today it’s been 16 degrees and clear blue skies….) we started the morning surveying the winter damage to paintwork – at first sight, pretty bad… but then I’m a dab hand with a paintbrush and having first put on a coat of PVC to stick everything together, I think you’ll see the place is pretty much back to new apart from the stone you see above which has some pretty bad cracking in it – nothing a good builder can’t put right.
We’re so used to cold weather we could not resist sitting out in the sun, so apart from a spot of painting and a short walk, we’ve not done much today.. and now the bad news… the Curry Cave is CLOSED – not just for Christmas but FOREVER…. Maureen rang them up and that’s all she could get out of them!!
Tonight we’ll no doubt trip down to the local village, our new next door neighbours are in and enjoying the sun – and all’s well.
