La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France at the time. We chose it while on the road, moving house the first time round, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like we did and like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, after yet another stint in Ireland, we're back in France @ Le Mas d'Ayen

Bedroom Makeover - The Finishing Line

I know where we'll be sleeping tonight.

 It still needs finishing touches and dressing up. Blinds need to be made (by moi), but I'm pleased with the result.

 Odds and ends that need a place still, but we're getting there.
The bathroom is only so so at the moment and I'll post a better photo when I'm happy with the result. The ladder in the shower - it was dirty - needs to move over as I am now discarding my paint clothes and letting the warm water drain all my aches and pains away.
