To complicate matters on Monday, Francis Guinot phoned at 8:30 to say that he would be on site on half an hour. We had been waiting for him or someone from Faye's since December to come to carry on with the external work and garage foundations and walls. In the meantime Francis had been elected Mayor of St Front la Rivière in the recent local elections. So I despaired of ever seeing him personally on our project again, knowing how much work being Mayor of a commune involves. But he arrived with his JCB to dig the holes for the septic tank and sand filter, closely followed by another gang from Faye to build the stone wall facing.
