  • Description

    Description

    I live with a partner in an old house in need of much restoration, with around 9000sq m of land, lots of room for campervans etc. Nothing had been done here for about 20 years. I have 3 children living back in the uk and Annette has 1 daughter. We have been here for nearly a year. We now have electricity and a separate annex, with a bedroom, shower and toilet.
    We have been badly affected by the recent fire, and made more walls colapse, so priorities change, as and when.
    We have no pets, only a varying quantity of chickens
