NOW: A very kind farmer has cut the worst of the weeds using his tractor.The place is looking so much better. Had a fun w/e celebrating Bastille day (Le quatorize) locally. No work today as it is Trisha's birthday.

We arrived on the 8th and the first job was to clear the huge weeds that have grown with all the sun and rain over the last two months. They are everywhere and the main offenders are 5 or 6 feet high! It will take us many days, I think. We could really do with some help :-)

We do have a singe bed and a non-tent place for a helper to stay. Do come and help us - Please.

LAST YEAR: we bought a pair of houses and barns in the Charente region of France and have started working towards making it our permanent home.
There are lots of things to do, including put in stairs, make rooms upstairs (previously grain stores), painting, repairing stone work and pointing, plumbing, electrics etc. The roof and walls are sound. There are also good sized gardens to plant an... more inside

Bridget and Neil living and working on 16 acres of land growing vegatables, trees and grapes. In between, a renovation project to the existing buildings and construction of a new timber framed barn. The barn will be fabricated using green Douglas Fir (Oregon Pine). All in the old Charentaise style. We also have a dog called Jack who is probably the best and nicest dog in the whole world!

The highlights of the year are:-
- the fire wook quota (Oak and Chestnut from own woods)
- the vegetable and fruit harvest along with preserving and freezing
- the making of Pineau (a fortified wine approx 17% alcohol)
- last but not least Bridget and I are both musicians playing traditional Celtic music, folk and whatever takes our fancy.

We are an English couple who moved to France 4 years ago because we wanted a different lifestyle to bring up our young children. Our house is still being renovated and therefore is not the smartest place, with building materials all over the place and half started projects surrounding us. We have just less than 2 hectares which comprises the house, orchard area, vegetable garden, fields and lake. Much of this is overgrown and we are gradually clearly, replanting and developing. Please note, we live in a small village, with no amenities close by.

Although we were both experienced with renovating houses in the UK we didnít anticipate how much having children would impact on our ability to get things done and have therefore not moved forward as fast as we expected.

We are smokers, although not in the house and we eat mostly meat orientated meals although are happy to try vegetarian meals occasionally.
