The agent’s photo of our back door, 2007. This is the picture that was in the shop window.
To my absolute relief and delight I recently found a CD with the original immobilier’s photos from when we first viewed the house in 2007.
I have hunted for them many times in the last few years and thought they were lost forever. I was very annoyed with myself for apparently having deleted them from the computer.
Then I was very pleased with myself when they turned up in a tidying-up of the study a couple of days ago. ( When I was hunting for something else, that didn’t turn up!)
I can’t explain why I felt it was so important not to have lost them. They have no value, even though they’re interesting. But having looked through them I am reminded that we have in fact made quite a few improvements to the house in the six years we have owned and loved it.
It was when we were standing exactly where these photos were taken from that we decided “this is the one”.
How many changes can you spot? I think I can see six. Plus one that is a change but you can’t tell from the first photo. (That’s a clue.)
(And the fact that the château does not seem to be peeping over the top of the kitchen in the second photo is to do with the angle the picture was taken, not a genuine change! The château is definitely still there. If it ever falls down, we’re in trouble !!)
Bon weekend !!
