Just the colour yellow makes me smile!
I am in love with our Yellow Farmhouse here at Borga Nari in Piedmont.
It’s strange to see the news about the heat in Australia when we are all rugged up here and have blankets up to the chin at night.
Luca is constantly rosy cheeked.
It’s a bit hectic here with all the rush to finish off the house before Sam’s parents get here.
Nobody in our yellow farmhouse wants to be first to get up and light the fire. Luckily I’m pretty good at lighting it now and even use the machete to break up wood into kindling.
I’m also getting better at making the Italian coffee but always fill the glass too high as they only drink about a cm of the stuff. Mind you there is no problemo swigging down half a glass of the Sambuca.
The guys have just come in and there is lots of Italian flying around and arm waving I think they are going to tile the floor.
Yep they are going to tile the floor and I’m told I have to clear these rooms out to downstairs ASAP.
Peppe is about a third the size of Sam but very loud and it always makes me start to get the giggles. I call them the Dynamic Duo!
Our Pete the log guy (Alfredo) started chain sawing up the tree after much aimless wandering around for most of the day. He’s loaded up his little blue tractor with the door frames and given us all a toxic cough from burning the rubbish out front.
He hasn’t been spotted since but Peppe reassures us that this is quite “normale” and he has to come back for his chainsaw and scaffold sooner or later.
We finished the gaillo (yellow) on the front of our Yellow farmhouse, I think you’ll be able to see it from the moon. People from across the valley are coming over to have a look at what the Australiani have done to the house (of course it should be white!)
