Driza bone – or tiling by Tonto

So Trev went to war on the kitchen floor. This certainly looks like “warpaint”

(PC alert- I hope no one is offended)

In fact its the water/dust spray from his serious tile cutter. He says that the brick tiles I have chosen are made of iron .

All tiles cut ready to lay tomorrow. Too late to change my mind again now…!

So he really had no choice but have a shower and hope that my glass mosaics are fully dry . They seem OK.

AND we no longer have a sub-shower leak on the stairs!! RESult. Though now I will have to go back to mopping those damn stairs again.

    Well, you’re certainly not putting your feet up, you two!

    I’m not showing this to HB2. We have been having an on-off debate about tommettes v wood for the downstairs and it did become a little lively! I’ve won, of course. Wood for the main area (reclaimed Chestnut) and thick tommettes in the kitchen. They will be a bitch to cut 😉

    I love the picture it did bring back memories of when Paul cut our tiles. I have a few flower names for you:-Jasminum Polyanthum smells gorgeous through Spring and Summer. Kletterrose Klimrose is a gorgeous white rose climber. Any Clematis, there is such a variety here from small to large and in any colour. Etoile des Incas produces blue flowers which are great for balcony’s, pots and borders. Lavender, rosemary, in fact any herb grows well. Tomatoes, fruit trees just love the sun. It is best to take a walk around your area and see what other people have planted, or ask the people in your village. Or ask at your local markets for advice. Enjoy planting

    • Thanks Chris. I have just looked at some Jasmine but it had no real scent. For the front of the house, I want a particular old fashioned climber but have yet this see it to buy it.
      There is a small bush of it growing in a neglected garden by river.
      I could go out at dead of night with flashlight and balaclava?

  5. He has suffered worse in the name of French House Restoration , not least having to pander to my whims.
