Les Chambres du Francais

Not sure I have the stamina for a full update so for now I’ll just post a piccie of my latest layout. Enjoyed doing this, I love the colour combo and the overall feel. Made with GoGo’s May kit, I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out.

ETA Ok, perhaps a super quick update on everything.  No news on the cottage but I suspect that’s all ok. The conservatory has today been plasterboarded and will be skimmed tomorrow. The first fix electrics and plumbing were done yesterday and we finalised the kitchen design and paid our deposit. We still need to finalise appliances and the colour for the glass worktops but it’s looking good so far.

We’ve sorted out what we’re doing with cars and it is with great reluctance that we’re trading in the MX5, along with the Mazda 5 for a new one of these:

We managed to get a better price by going to the lady who always services our cars for us and so the deal is set to be struck on Monday afternoon. Pete will be without a permanent car until September when he should have a spanking new, super low emissions Ford Focus Estate as a company car.

Now I just need to: organise a hire car for Pete, organise a hire car for Crete, decide on kitchen appliances, decide on lighting for the conservatory, choose and order the table, plan and order the built in seating, choose and buy a sofa, buy all the chrome light switches and sockets, choose outdoor lighting, choose our seats on the plane, chase the refund on the ash cloud Ibiza trip, bring the accounts up to date and worry how to pay for everything!! As is usual in our lives – we don’t do things by halves!

Thanks for dropping by.
