After a long 6 & 1/2 hour drive south we arrived at the house. Once there we cooked a simple dinner and were pleased with the peace and quiet of the place, only to discover we were sharing the house with a colony of flying ants (thousands of them crawling on the walls and the ceiling). They even managed to crawl in under the mosquito net, warming up the bed for us; gee, thanks ants! There was also a family of bats living in the bedroom but luckily they moved out after the first night. Ahhh, country life! Things got better the next day. One of my favourite moments in the house was when I knitted by the window whilst watching a thunderstorm working it's way across the horizon; who needs a TV?! Happy Friday mes amies!
