Summer Time

No real blog tonight, I’ve just run out of time.

Over the last year I had the luxury of not wearing a watch and for most of the time not setting an alarm for the morning. Since the hour change here, last Saturday, I’ve been totally lost, my internal clock thinks I have an hour to spare when I don’t.

Generally it wouldn’t matter, but tomorrow, the electrician and plumber are due back to finish plumbing in the water tank and immersion heater and I know they will be here before I would usually be dressed.

So tonight really needs to be early to bed and I will have to set the alarm, but my body is telling me it’s only 8 pm while the clock is saying 9 pm and I still have to clear the surfaces in the kitchen so the sink can be plumbed in too and I have bread to make.

I expect I’ll just about get my body clock sorted by the time we have to switch it all back again! But I do love the longer light evenings but then as I said in an earlier post, ‘I don’t do mornings’.

You are brave - but happy - and that is all that counts in the end.

I admire you greatly - taking this on on your own.

Waiting to hear how lovely it will be to have running hot water and a few more things done around the house...

Hi Deborah, I love this warmer weather and we can leave the shutters open. That way I can wake up in a much gentler way than when the alarm goes off!! You are doing brilliantly and I can't wait to read the next installment. All of us bloggers in France have been renovating, and can appreciate the frustrations and triumphs you experience.
