The New Look.

We finally stopped eating and Marco has, in the last 2 days, got some amazing photos and stitched them together, 'Putain quelle discipline!' We really like the results so we are going to let him loose on the website. Look out for an entertaining update of the 'House' section of the site over the next few days.

It's been a beautiful week, which is a good thing because the oil for the aga just ran out.

The Grand Anniversaire.

With the renovation of the interior pretty much complete the tallest Frenchman has been here this week celebrating his 30th with his tall father. It has been quite a party (of which more later). We were sad to find that the Wee Spey Dram whisky shop is no more, an event I'm sure was reflected by this incredible apolcalyptic cloud which descended today.

The Home Straight.

The kitchen and the back corridors are finally done, the red lino has come up and gone out through the windows, we have scraped the glue from the floorboards, spent the weekend sanding and waxing and making shelves for the pantry, caulking cracks, polishing pans and touching up the paintwork.

Today we are finally tackling the kitchen, keeping it Edwardian and keeping the chickens out of the paint.
