An early start to head down the valley to go shopping. A little rubbish to bin, recycling to do and stuff to go in the skip on the way. Clothes washing went into the laundrette leaving us 1/2 an hour to get to Mr Brico and back.
More white spirit, wire brushes and some paint later and we collected some clean clothes. On to La Forgue to look for some posts to make a banister around the clothes. Found 3 posts about 3″ square and 120cm long and 30€ each. We bought then but I have a sneaking feeling that we shall find an alternative and give them back.
Food shopping for the week and some fresh fish fillets for this evening and back to the barn and unpacked by 1pm.
In the afternoon we set about finishing and installing the steps in the bathroom and then had a massive clear up on the ground floor, including clearing the front wall for pointing. It is a nasty word but it is not over yet.
