I think these two had done their bit

Although August is the month of Fiestas, work on the house is progressing well, thanks to our two super helpers Carl and Lauren, and the window firm from Lugo. We had been promised our new windows the third week in August, and surprise, they arrived on time, so this winter will be more comfortable than last year, with eight inches of roof insulation and the well fitting windows.

The older Galicians are a very hardy lot, they all seem to have just the kitchen with old ranges as their main living area, and windows that do nothing to keep out the elements, but they all seem to live to ripe old ages.

Carl has finished tiling our new kitchen /dining room floor, and is doing a super job on laying our old roofing slates as a patio area at the front of the house, and Lauren has done a brilliant job weeding the vegetable garden, Simon is trying to finish the new guttering, but despite all the work going on, we still manage to get to see some of the Fiestas, and to take our helpers out sightseeing.
