My Perfect Day
The builders have left. They were a great bunch of guys but it is so nice to have my home back. I can finally relax.
The kitchen is ready apart from a few finishing touches. I am chuffed to pieces with it. The building inspector came today and couldn’t keep his hands off the oak island worktop. “Lovely - needs another coat of oil” he said.
The weather is perfect today. Warm, sunny, light breeze, no bugs. We had lunch outside on the terrace – salad, chilled rose wine, cafe jazz; I could have stayed there all day. Rick had other ideas, he needed his afternoon walk. We sauntered round the village and didn’t meet a single soul. I think they were all having an afternoon siesta. A very sleepy village today.
