Another gorgeous autumnal day which made packing up so much easier. the leaves are all really looking beautiful now as they start to change colour every day.
We had a last forage for some bolets for our pasta tonight and we had success a good couple for the pot and then picked loads of brambles to make a tart and to have for the journey. They are delicious and there are so many of them now too.
Lots of tidying up jobs first thing, emptying compost from the toilet, clearing upstairs and closing a few more openings, packing bags and taking them down to Vinnie.
Put down the last few bits for the terrace so apart from the steps it is finished. We have a flat outdoor terrace for next summer.
Ian turned up mid morning on his bike just as the sun was arriving so coffee in the sun before cracking on with the rest of the jobs.
Rest of the day was scrubbing etc so we have a cleanish place to come back to.
We had early hot showers and pasta dinner with the bolets so we could wash up in the light. A few hands of rummy before bed by 10pm ready for long drive tomorrow.
Sad to be leaving especially as the weather has been so gorgeous for the last week but I think we are both looking forward to getting back to the UK and seeing family and friends again.
Already thinking about what we hope to get done next year….
