Ok, I know its been a while since I wrote this blog. We have been busy with with lots of little things trying to pull everything together before winter. The roof is finally finished (well all the tiles anyway) It has been totally treated, re wooded, membraned and tiles with sous plats and tige de bottes (under and upper tiles) put on. We are finally for the first time in many many years water tight (hooray!!!)
We have also been back to the UK to visit friends and family before Christmas. A right palaver that is. We went back without a vehicle as it was much cheaper to fly. So to get from France to east London, we needed trains, planes and auto-mobiles! Car from home to the airport, then plane to the UK, coach from Stansted to Stratford London then the underground to our daughters home. Luckily her boyfriend came and meet us at Stratford otherwise I think if left to our own country bumpkin ways on the underground we would of ended up in Edinburgh! The underground is such a maze if you hardly use it and I'm sure we would of gotten lost. But all in all we got to where we needed to be and where much happier when we stopped moving.
The next day was rather busy and we managed to fit in 4 markets in one day. Borough Market was lovely with lots of tempting lovely treats to buy, but as we where flying back we couldn't take advantage of buying anything. We also went to the German market and a pop up street market for Christmas.
