So the weather has taken a turn for the worse and it's suddenly quite wet and miserable here. The canadian girl who was staying here with us, who by the way, was like Sheldon from the big bang theory but without actually being funny. She is being taken onto her new place this morning and it is too wet for us to work so thought id write a little update.
Not a whole lot has happened really. On friday we asked if we could buy ...
... roses I think. They have 50 different types. Digging up roses is tough and thorns are slightly annoying but compared to the last place, this is easy. I have also been cutting down tree branches and putting them through a wood chipper. Put on my ear protectors and just push the branches down. Something new for my resumé! I just made a fire in our place so hopefully it'll be a bit warmer ...
... On top of all that, I stood on a toad! I came outside carrying a bag of rubbish and stood on what I thought was a shoe at the time, until I walked back and Carl asked who stood on a toad? Was pretty horrible. It hadn't quite died either so fran and Maria tried to scrape it up with a dustpan and brush which took ages and was hilarious.

So after a few days of hard work, we got a day off today! Carl, the man who is hosting us, drove us to a small quaint village near by to have a walk around. It was beautiful, with a harbour and nice rivers running through it, but it was dead. As its no longer summer, and the tourists have gone nothing was really open. Struggled to find anywhere to eat, if you didn't want a crepe! which i didn't.
The work so far ...
