Just a Sprinkle

This is what we woke up to this morning, just a sprinkling of snow. We’ve been told it doesn’t snow very often here, so it was a lovely surprise. Not enough to do anything with, so no bonhomme de neige and by lunchtime it had all gone :(

Snow (6) Not much news here this week. The house was closed up while we were skiing, so the walls in the lounge and hall still need more drying out. Because there’s not much we can do while this is happening, I’ve been continuing to paint the hall ceiling and the side of the stairs and Roger has been Mrs Mop in the lounge, cleaning the floor which has a lot of render stuck to it. We didn’t have time to clean it before we went skiing as the last of the rendering was finished minutes before we went on holiday. We have a long DIY shopping list for Friday which includes such delights as copper tubing for the radiators, 3" nails, wire strippers and wood filler. Hopefully we will also get fun stuff like curtains, poles and new tiles for the floors.

  1. We don't usually have any snow either, just a smattering like you have had, and then gone within a couple of hours. But not this time!

    Your place is looking good. Looking forward to seeing how you get on with it.

  2. Good luck with the DIY shopping. I find it is the one shop that brings Tim alive. He loves it; me less so! However for you it will mark another phase of your renovations. Bon courage... ;0)

    1. It must be a boy thing Gaynor. I can put up with DIY shops for an hour or so but Roger loves them.

  3. The snow makes it look very pretty, I expect you cannot wait to get your radiators back on. And we are sure you will enjoy your shopping, we cannot wait to see the results of all your hard work. xx

    1. You never get snow when you need it, at Christmas time when the lights are up. Would make a lovely card though x
