A Leisurely Day

A very leisurely start after the party the night before. Weather still raining and dismal. Chris wanted to go to the market so we headed off there and got caught in a huge downpour running from shelter to shelter. Not the best day to see the market, however, we bought a few good cheeses. Chris was starving so we had a quick bite to eat before locating the local brocante that Murray had told us about. A huge warehouse with everything you could imagine being there. Had a good browse and will be useful at a later date we think.

Chris went to bed in the pm and Al and I had a catch up with Annie (who had given us so much of her old slate last Oct) she is lovely a lecturer at Toulouse Uni and is retiring next year. She showed us her wonderful flowering Wisteria in full bloom. We hope to catch her and her husband Jean next week end for an apero.

Al and I have wanted to do the little walk along the other side of the river back to Salau for a while so we continued up to the barn on foot and back down the other side of the river seeing the other little properties tucked away. We bumped in to Annie and Jean who live near the beginning of the 4×4 track en route. Annie showed us around the garden and is very pleased with her Wisteria which is in full flower. On the walk we tried to find out where the nearest phone line is to us. We reckon 400-500m away so now we need to get in touch with France Telecom and see if it is possible to get a phone line installed at the Bergerie.

We had invited Peter, who was on his own, over for a BBQ and luckily the weather held so we could have a couple of games of  boules before a meat, salad and cheese; even if we did have to eat inside due to the thunderstorm that descended upon us.

A leisurely day!
