Grahy 2011

Some thoughts about, and pictures from, 2011, our first full year of owning our French house.

750 metres


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.
