On one sunny day in July the men turned up to install the fosse septique (septic tank) for us.
What a job! the back garden had to be completely cleared of all the old tree stumps, brambles and ferns that had been there for I don’t know how long.
They took about a week to do it all. Then we had to have some one official to come and inspect it, and to give us the relevant certification to say that it was all OK.
Bill was in England while all this was going on. It was quite an experience having to deal with it on my own.
