An early start in Bonsal, Derbyshire in order to drop off a car in Wirksworth and then get to East Midlands Airport for 6am. Ken is a star and gave us a lift. Made the flight by the skin of our teeth to get to Carcasonne where we had left the van in the driveway of some friends.

Having collected the van in glorious sunshine we trundled our way through the French countryside to reach the barn. Stopped to stock up on food, fill up a gerry can with petrol and fill up water containers for drinking water.

The grass was waist deep at the barn so we picked up some food bags and waded our way up the hill to open everything up and start getting organised.


Breezy emptied out the outhouse where we live and brushed down the walls. It was quite damp from the winter so a good airing was needed. I set about reconnecting the batteries and getting the fridge going then picked up the strimmer to make some pathways for getting about.


Much easier getting sorted when the sun is shining hoorah. Had a simple fish dinner for supper with some cous cous and then to bed.
