Fi had a late flight so Breezy and I decided that we may as well tie in shopping in St Girons with dropping her off at the bus.So an afternoon of chores in town after a morning of small jobs in the barn for me.
I drove Breezy and Fi up to the old mines from where they planned to walk down into Salau and then headed back to the barn. Managed to wire in another lighting circuit so that you can see into the fridge, fitted 3 wall lights into holes in the front wall and start making 3 posts for the balustrade round the stair well before the ladies returned for lunch.
They got down to Salau without incident where they seem to have bumped into the entire village. They managed to avoid aperos with Adam on the way to the church to see the exhibition before trundling back up the valley to the barn.
Pate salad on the top terrace.
After lunch we hitched up the trailer and set off down the valley. First stop was La Forgue to take back the balustrade posts that we bought last week. Pretty simple 3″ square posts but at 30€ each we decided that we would make our own out of spare wood. Clothes into the washing machine and off to fill up the trailer with sand for pointing; back to collect the washing and drop off Fi; then food shop.
Back to the barn for 6pm to hang clothes on a line inside the main barn. Salad and cake making in preparation for BBQ Saturday. Simple prawns, bread and aioli for sups before reading and bed.
