Bit wild and windy tonight!

Oh dear, it seems to be blowing a hooley here in 56. Fingers crossed that it is nothing like last week. Thought I’d take a peek at the weather forecast for next week though and I was very pleasantly surprised……

That’s more like it!

We’ve had a busy weekend here at La Petite Ferme. Lots of painting and sorting out done today in preparation for the opening of the Chambre d’Hôtes, so the guest rooms will be going online very soon! Watch this space!

For anyone who is thinking of buying a house over here and doing some renovation work, a word of advice….bring your paint from the UK! I am all for using French products and buying over here the vast majority of the time…. apart from the paint. French emulsion is really expensive to buy, is not great quality and hence does not cover so well. It has, basically, nothing going for it all….in my experience. However, having said that, tile paint from Bricodepot is one of the best products I’ve ever used! So I guess it’s swings and roundabouts.

I am suddenly aware that it is nearly 9pm and I haven’t eaten. This is something that has to be sorted out!

Bonne soirée and chat again soon!

  1. Hi I agree with you regarding French paint, we have had our house in 56 since 2013 and we always bring English paint if we are doing any decorating but on the other hand we had brown plastic shutters and last summer found wonderful plastic paint in a beautiful Lavender Blue from Weldom the French do some things really well but I still favour the English products when decorating.
