2011 was the first full year we owned our french house. We had arranged for a local builder to install a fosse septique, a bathroom and other improvements. Which he did during a very cold January through to March. So cold in fact that in February our neighbours contacted us to say the temperature was -18C at midday.

We came over for our first visit after the work had been completed in early April. For a very sunny week of gardening and cleaning.

This was also the visit of the giant hailstones.

On our next visit in September we tackled the overgrown terrace with its grindstone β€œtable”.

Finally in 2011 we had our first Christmas at Grahy with a heavily improvised christmas tree.
