the new year





We haven't been doing much on the house over the past few weeks. Oscar has been rendering the can parapet wall and we started work on tidying up the front face. The opening windows are due to be installed next week and then we will get on with the bathroom and end walls I think. Things get a bit hazy around now because we haven't got the faintest idea about plumbing or electricity. Have to study up a bit.

Those of you who have been to our place will remember our mud oven - here is a picture of it in action on New Year's Eve. It is pretty cracked and blackened on the outside but still works really well. This time it was roast organic chicken but we have also got into the pizza swing and get that really thin Italian base perfect every time. Yum.

Here you also have our front doorbell, two of our cats and last week's sunset to contemplate. More soon.
