well no, and i’m not sorry. I’ve had troubles and hassles from the builders bailiff 4 yrs after they FAILED to legally finish the house to correct standard or to the build permit…; he was chased the fuck out of the street and i do SHOUT very loudly. I refuse to have people demand my details at my own frontdoor ‘go fuck yourself’ and anything more to be said will be in court and NOT FRENCH COURTS – untrustworthy and incompetent.
The the tax office using the traditional french tactics to avoid doing anything ‘keep the victim the victim’ they are now passing my refusal to pay land tax tothe courts. I wont pay as more than 80% of the land i own is crisscrossed with public services that should NOT be there! meaning the land is not contructable and should not be taxed thus! Furthermore I demand rental for the use of my land and the removal of the services before I GET BORED one day with a pickaxe!!!! In order to NOT even give a fucking shit about me they have passed it to recovery and bank account siezure ! all learnt lots of fresh new english words to brighten their day!!! I’ll not be bullied and i’ll not be the victim to their fucking incompetences!ù
Thus realising that france really is a fucking crap country full of inert, paranoid, spiteful,jealous, envious, retarded gossips – i’ve had an estate agent here today 🙂 I’m balanced on what to do? he’ll look into if the house can be sold if not it has no vlaue and only the land can be sold, which has no value due to public services!!!!
The deal is I’m gonna try to get out and fast and FUCK FRANCE!
Should I not be able to sell the house then i’ll demolish it and leave the remains to rot!
I’ll have to abandon my lovely garden, and I’m pulling my hair out what the hell I do with my animals? They have to come with me, and I do think I will have to return to England.
We see, I just hope the house can be sold. Either way i got a fur family to do something with and this is making me ill thinking it over.
so no updates here, i’m in thought mode.
let you know as and when

I’m asking why they rise? I know small stones rise all the time as the rain washes soil down then they eventually rise. I’ve seen areas close to here where enormous rocks 2×2′ can rise up!!! and in my garden areas i’ve dug over last year, i’m finding stones of 4″ that there is no way where there before.
can anyone explain how or why they rise? and how such big ones rise up also.? areas of limestone i know the rocks of quite big sizes are continuously being dug out of the firlds by farmers…

Nookie is sooosososoosososoos happy !!!! I have started my garden year. Yesterday and today bit cold but S U N la de da de la la…. digging weed ripping and effin oak leaf sweeping. Moved a whole bunch of Bearded Iris that had not been planted in the right place last year, and they are now much better possitioned. (hope).
I saved 300gazillion seeds of all sorts I had in the garden last year, saved, dried, labled and stored. Of course I have now about 300gazillion too many seeds, and nowhere to put them:!! I’m seeing donations happening, and I already know one garden they’re going in by the handful 🙂
Veg plots will be very much toned down from last year. I’d tried to be clever and grow lots and lots of different things. This year (will post plan eventually) I will be a little more selective.

I wish it’d hurry up and change. I’m champing at the bit here to start. Its gone cold and wet again. Last weekend was lovely and hot and I was so gonna do things …. I managed a leaf clear, the garden is surrounded by 4 very big oak trees and every fucking leaf that drops I get. They never blow away they just circle a bit and lodge themselves on my garden. I must have burnt a ton off last year end, and i’m starting over this month the same. Why do we have to protect fucking oak trees??? cut the bastards down, I’d rather I had more accacias than bloody boring oak. Oak leaves take on average 3 DECADES to rot down and are useless for compost.
Anywayz ; I got two nice roses in a promo at the local supermarket and a cherry tree (very small). I’m so wanting to get out there and begin……….. The season is not yet with us ;(
I need to get the soil turned and ready for the Dailia and Canna to go in, but not now its gone too wet again. grrrrrrrrrrrr

<img Here see what -12° looks like my poor garden iced.
Here a couple of day of cold rain. The pond (hole) is about 5’deep and 12′ across at max. Serious concerns its full…. looks great full, but what will happen when i get around to actually finishing it? where will all the excess water go? This afternoon it was past the pond and beyond the grass was a few inches deep already.
