It started off by my heading off to Sarlat for my second Pfizer Covid jab. So hopefully that’s me done and dusted, and I bought my first strawberries and cream of the year on the way back to my car.

After lunch as the weather was so nice I thought that I’d do a flight with my Fimi X8 SE 2020 drone. I’ve only had it back a few days after returning it to China for repair so I’m still not back in the swing of things. After it went out of control and flew into a tree, I noticed that the video image on the right hand side of the frame had become slightly blurred. Fimi said that I had to return it to them and they agreed, repairing it for free and returning it with an extra battery to compensate me for the cost of sending it back. That’s what I call service – kudos to Fimi!

I only did a fairly short flight straight out from my garden over les Etangs de Fongran towards Thonac before swinging right around, heading up towards Fanlac and then home again via Le Bos de Plazac. Here are a few shots that I lifted from the videos that I shot during the flight that don’t do them justice at all, unfortunately.

Then by mid-afternoon I was back onto the floor tiling in front of my new patio door. It’s slow work because it has to be done properly and accurately but today was the end of the tiling proper. I’ll leave them to cure tomorrow while I finish off the new small windows in my bathroom and toilet and then come back to add the jointing in a couple of days. Here’s where I got to at the end of today.

I said to my French neighbour Chantal, that if I’d known at the time that I’d be selling the house I’d have gone for something simpler, plainer (and less expensive!) but it’s too late for that now and I’ve just got to see the job through. So it’s ‘Tally-Ho and on we go!’ so I can move onto the next job on the list – the new large windows in the bedrooms. I have a feeling that they’re going to be tricky…
