Shopping and getting organised

Vinnie (the VW) had an appointment at the doctor in St Girons at 0830hrs. We had packed the van with rubbish for the skip and all the recycling so only had to remember the shopping list and the clothes to wash.

After half an our of crawling under the front of the van, the mechanic stated that the claxon (horn) is “mort” and needs replacing. Fortunately he had one in stock. Vinnie now has his voice back. Whatever else is wrong with your vehicle in France, if you do not have a working horn you should not be on the road.

Clothes in the washer, quick dash to Mr Brico, back to get the clean laundry and then off to food shop.

Back at the barn and chilled courgette & cumin soup. We are getting quite creative in the ways of cooking with courgettes.

The floor in the workshop looks great so now it is just a case of building shelving to get everything a bit better organised. Meanwhile Breezy fitted glass to a window in the outhouse and treated the manger bits for wood worm.
