Eggy bread for brecky and real coffee again (we ran out a few days ago).
Last night we talked through Ski Breezy and the coming winter at the chalet in Chamonix coming up with a plan to start organising things so the morning was taken up on the web until we both had enough of computer screens and keyboards. Then off to Ian’s.
Lee was there already with a charming couple of his house guests so it was a great time to catch up with everybody and see Ian’s house and lathe work. Thanks Ian, good food and great company.
Back at the barn by 5pm and the cloud was down and drizzly. No great motivation to start anything so in all a chilled evening ahead with good old chicken supper and a fire.
