A Small Hiatus: It's been rather challenging to finish up the chalet build, host Christmas and New Year and blog about it too. Additionally (no excuses or owt) there's also been a virulent and boring 2 week long flu after New Year, and then the computer refused to turn on. Hard to blog without one of those. Still trying to get the pics off the old hard drive to start a Before and Afters transformation series of posts on here a la Kevin MacLeod. In the meantime - now that the chalet renovation is finished (cue joyful leaping in air), I thought it might be good to set out what this blog is going to be now that the renovation is over. While I was laid up with flu I planned out a few posts that I've been frustratingly not to be able to write due to above reasons. As it turns out, there are a fair few elements still to cover about the final weeks' build. There are also a few exciting new developments to share here, as well as the news that we've already started to scout around for the next renovation project in France. Suckers for punishment maybe? Potentially so…we clearly have short memories for stress and newly formed frown lines.
