What a day!

It’s glorious here in le vrai sud de France weatherwise; perhaps not the ideal day for running around.

Down to the dechetterie with renovation detritus, all super-heavy. Then had we to get three big solid twelve foot roof joists down two flights of twisty stairs to the cave.

Answer? Tie a rope around them and lower from second floor into courtyard. Avoiding windows of course.

Then race to Carcassonne to pick up chest of drawers that is in a blog-buddy’s way and as she was kind enough to save it for us for weeks, we needed to pick it up asap.

Then back to move stuff around in cave and check on whether shower room door is “setting”.

Handy  hint- Trev experimented with biscuits rather than wood dowels/pegs on his second hand-made door. Unsuccessful so all had to come apart and be drilled and dowelled.

Just use pegs, guys
