Week of December 12, 2021

Updated: Dec 19, 2021

On December 13, 2021 - This is a picture of the petite salon in Le Chateau Du Domaine. Seeing its beauty and its similarity to our ballroom is what made me reach out to Peter Stoff. I wrote to him asking for advice; one chicken dinner later and I convinced him to do our ceiling! Still can't quite believe it!

Voici une photo du petit salon du Château Du Domaine. C'est en voyant sa beauté et sa similitude avec notre salle de bal que j'ai contacté Peter Stoff. Je lui ai écrit pour lui demander conseil ; un dîner de poulet plus tard et je l'ai convaincu de faire notre plafond ! Je n'arrive toujours pas à y croire !

On December 15, 2021 - Just a little update on our trophy panels!

What do you think?

Juste une petite mise à jour sur nos panneaux de trophées! Qu'en penses-tu?

On December 17, 2021 - When we first started our DIY journey we really had no idea what to expect. It was a rapid decision, without a fixed strategy and so far out of my comfort zone.

Everything in me said “ I can’t do this. I don’t know how.” I’ve never been handy. I still don’t understand the metric system. I cut before I measure. I’m clumsy. If ever there was something unsuitable for my skill set, this was it.

But I have my husband. And if ever there was a time to believe in his drive, passion and ability; this was it.

So I let go of my fear and let go of all of the doubts and decided to follow his lead. And it was the best decision outside of moving across the world and marrying him. And the fact that you are all interested in this journey makes it so much fun and sometimes scary.

I am not equipped, but he is. And we have met some amazing people who have decided to help us. And now we get to share it with a few more people.

We've got your Christmas telly covered! Stream our episode of @chateaudiy on @channel4 . I can’t believe this is happening.... story of my life since I met Ben x

Til next week!
