The lorry arrived to deliver the breeze blocks that will line the inner walls before the old stone is put back in place.
The driver promptly ran over my treasured flower-filled Victorian chimney pots that I have had for 28years and smashed them to pieces!
There is now a huge hole being made in the barn wall that will eventually be our sitting room with beautiful views over the marsh.
I decided to leave them all to it and went off to La Haye du Puits for a little retail therapy!
The fleuristes always lift my mood with their delicious display and Monsieur Brigard at the epicerie has the most enormous basket of oranges you have ever seen! I treated myself to a large cafe creme and a warm croissant amande followed by a browse in the quincaillerie hardware store and felt a whole lot better about the chaos at home!
You can`t make an omelette without breaking a few oeufs!
