Keeping warm in the south of France

23 Jan

The climate here is interesting. In summer it can get quite hot but in winter it seems to vary a lot year to year. Last year it was quite cold in December and January. img_3802This year, apart from one day of snow, it has been quite warm although dropping to 1 deg C at night. Tomorrow they are forecasting 15 deg C and sun!

To help us keep warm, we have had double-glazed windows fitted in our apartment. Well worth the money – no more draughts and no more water running down the windows in the morning!

We’ve also been kept busy fixing a water leak in the main water supply. This meant clambering up a muddy bank at the back of the factory, plus multiple trips to the track which runs way above us, to turn the water on and off.


All well in the end. So on to the next job – stopping rainwater running down onto the second floor of the factory!

And finally, what could be better or more cathartic then a visit to the local dump!
