We found the brick paviours. They will work in kitchen and the cave.

We are NOT going to conveniently drop on the 34 square metres of reclaimed floor tiles or brick that we need, within our budget, the minute we are back in France. Trust me I’ve been looking for eons & I also need something that is not porous

Aside from that, it’s all still up in the air here in UK.


Hopefully big news sooner rather than later. Cross all your fingers and toes for me and whilst you are at it, pray to any friendly deities you may have a hot line to.

I really need some good news.

Thanks for sticking with me blog-buddies, let us hope that the end justifies the means.

    In an old sci-fi novel I read about how some people (in what was the future) had home altars with a Lares & a Penates. I thought it made sense that one could sort of create a small ‘d’ divinity that would help you with your life and home.
    I mean no disrespect to anyone’s faith or beliefs, just speaking theoretically…so here’s the background on them:
    I mean the Romans got along very well with their system for a long time and they weren’t really dummies, were they. Some madmen (and women) but every century has those.
    (for the book-minded, it was John Brunner’s Jagged Orbit–like many of his books, almost prescient, unfortunately.
    In some ways, with all you’ve rescued, reclaimed, renewed and semi-restored, you’ve offered your devotion and labor to the as-yet-named goddess. Hesta was the goddess of the hearth so perhaps she’s not a stranger to what you’re already doing.
    Congratulations on the award and on having such a wise son!

    Fabulous. As always. Practical and aesthetic – that’s you by the way. And the pavers too. Hope all pans out in a jiffy and you are here to join the party before party politics are the death of us all xx

    Sending only good wishes, because you deserve them!
    Just curious, but once they are set can’t you use a sealer on them to make them not porous?
