About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Warmer Weather

well its almost dry ... most days, we've had three nice days now, its still rained at some point every day, but inbetween times its also been sunny and warm... at times well into the 60s good working weather! Which is good as Rik moved the kitchen range a couple of days ago so we've had no heating or cooker since... Oh joy, hopefully by the time I get home today , he'll have lit it and the place will be warmer.... he's building walls, and knocking holes all over the place.. it is getting a little better though as I can see the kitchen I want taking shape now. Its going to be VERY rustic, all made with wood and stone and very old fashioned... but just what I want, our house is 250 years old... ish, so a modern fitted kitchen would be a crime in there... this is meant to look like it was always there....
Running water would be nice though hehehehe
