It’s a miracle! The last row of insulation batts going under the kitchen floor butted up perfectly against our crazy walls. REE….sult.
The last whole plank of wood under the window is tough to get in as no room on the front wall side to readily lever the tongue into the groove here.
A very red and grumpy Trev has just announced that he has finally finished laying 63 rows of plank floor and he is now going for a lie down.
We are delighted to announce that the only restaurant proper in the village has now reopened following a classy makeover.
The bar cafe does food and rooms on a more modest scale , but not having a full restaurant within walking distance was a pain.
The original owners have come back to revive The Relais de Haute Vallee’s fortunes and the unsuccessful tenants moved on; none too soon as they provided us with a meal so awful Trevor wouldn’t pay; and that’s a first.
On the negative side, our favourite restaurant in Carcassonne has reduced the size of its portions noticeably.
Bad idea at the start of the main tourist season guys…..
