Breeze blog!

It has been a busy and very noisy few days here with the building work having commenced on the main extension to the chateau.

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!

  1. Hi Shirley
    My Mum was in tears this morning having had a volcanic row with her builder, at least he didn't drive over her marble angels in the garden!
    We had a cup of tea but I think that we would have preferred cafe creme & croissant!
    Lovely to see how things are progressing.

  3. Builders!!! Just hope it doesn't get quite as bad as the lyrics in the song, you have really made me smile!

  4. That song always makes me laugh! I can remember my dad singing it when I was a child. Hopefully it will all go smoothly but I have a feeling the weather is about to turn and may put a stop to the work. Roll on the Spring!!

  5. I love the song! I am sorry about your chimney pots. It is good that you treated yourself to a cafe creme and a warm croissant. I would do the same.
