Another shopping day. A bit of a slow morning with a lie in and then getting emails sorted and the right stuff on different laptops. First stop was fuel for the truck then on to La Forge for materials: insulation for under the concrete floor in the outhouse, guttering for the roof, pipe for the vent of the composting toilet, wire for the steel reinforcement for capping the walls, steel mess for the concrete floor, chalk for the chalk line for cutting lines on sarking, additional parquet flooring for the mezzanine, and a random assortment of fixings.
Them off to Mc Donalds for free WiFi to get the blog updated, send emails, sort out web updates for Ski Breezy receive emails etc etc…
Lee sent though a fantastic photo of the grange from the top of Mont Rouche. See the previous entry.
Then off to the supermarket for supplies for ten days, back the gite to unload food then to the grange to unload materials. Finished off by installing a pipe into the small outhouse for ducting hot air in via a hot box outside.
Finished the day with a bottle of rose at the grange and a chat about next steps. First time this trip. It was great to just stop and talk about plans and priorities. Days are so full and there is so much to do that it is great to just stop and dream and share; share ideas and create a common vision.
Shopping day is always a gauntlet run to get stuff done in the opening hours in France, very tiring but all in all a great day.
