Doors.

Three New Doors I got today. And what a revelation that was. I have never seen such superb workmanship before. And that was just the installing of them. The Doors themselves are bloody lovely.

After long hours of discussion about this and that and what price anyway, I got to choose. But since I was always going to be paying the bill, why should I not?

But this sort of thing can always be a bit of a chance. Although quite possibly not in Brittany.

At the time of discussing this my French as ever was not all that good, but I have got exactly what I wanted. Despite everyone telling me that I didn’t know what on earth I was talking about.

I now have three really lovely new doors that look nearly as good as they would have done 100 odd years ago. Which is what it was all about for me. I never wanted to change the face of my old house.

And such power to the man who knew how to do this. I am incapable of telling him of what it means to me.

Meanwhile the ghastly Dachshund nearly had a fit and tried to beat up the new door. No, I mean really. O’Connor got really upset and growled at The Door over and over? I have told him that it’s really okay and I sat on the floor with him to make him feel better. Yep. I am nearly as daft as he is. Poor little boy. He didn’t understand the smell of a new door or even what it looks like. But even that was a revelation. There are more things in life, Horatio. That dreadful little dog has taught me a thing or two.

The new door of my house is exactly what I wanted. It is North facing and not much to be done about that beyond a big window and an opening. I have no idea for why this house was built facing North when I get no natural light from the South. So it has always been a bit of a battle to get some light into here. 30 years and six and a half thousand Euros later I might have half managed it. But only half. The house is as it is. Like I said there is always something to be said for Dirt Floors. And O’Connor got a bit upset.

I have just seen the very best of Breton workmanship that anyone is ever likely to see.
