|Easy peasy - the LGB upended it..........|
|Stood and scratched his |
|Et voila!! All in place|
|And a close up of his handy work!! Bravo!|
Thursday the floor joists arrived nice and early. I had a close shave when the driver was taking them off the lorry. Brendan and I were placing blocks down for them to sit on. The driver bent down to move a block and hit the lever on his controls and the load jerked down hitting me and knocking me sideways. I escaped with a grazed hand and bruises on my arm and shoulder, although I can feel I have been bashed!
We're moving our belongings from the gite over to the garages and caravan. This will be our seventh move in ten years! The next time we move I am taking just a suitcase (and Brendan I suppose). I am planning to sell this house fully-furnished! When it comes to moving our wordly goods from the garages into the house I am going to be brutal. I have already drastically reduced my homes and decorating magazine collection much to Brendan's delight. I have to admit they are a bit of an obsession with me. I am planning to replace them - the LGB will never notice them coming in one at a time!

I know the 'we would like to thank' is usually expressed at the end of the project but I would just like to express our gratitude to all our wonderful friends and family who have housed us, fed us, offered us the use of showers, beds, swimming pools, washing machines and given help and encouragement. You know who you are and we appreciate the huge gestures and the little ones. No-ones offered to pay to have the work done yet though......... Seriously, thank you, we are very lucky to have such lovely friends.
Moving into the caravan tonight. I am not sure when the next post will be.........xxx
