We can hardly believe that it is already time to pack up and head back to Cham and onto the UK again. The summer and the autumn have zoomed by.
Last few days. We have been busy trying to tidy the place up both inside and outside before heading off.
We had all the wood for building stuff on the side terrace and needed to get rid of any wood that was useless and get the good stuff inside. This meant we had a huge pile of wood to burn on a bonfire.
At the same time we decided to get rid of any dead wood from around the back terrace which had come down in storms over the winter. A few hours and it was all cleared up and bonfire was roaring. All the decent wood is now stacked neatly inside in the hallway.
We also managed to tidy up the dead wood and storm damage from the terrace heading to the tree house platform that looks much better too.
Other bits of DIY jobs included finishing off the wiring, plaster boarding pantry back wall so now the pantry is a lot brighter too. Just needs painting next year now.
Then it was the usual pack up stuff, solar panels in, outbuilding locked up, outdoor furniture in etc etc.
Sad to be leaving as it seems to have come around far too quickly.
Had a good night in Avignon on way north. A tour around the papal palace was fascinating plus a wander over the famous bridge (what there is of it) and a fabulous meal in the old cloisters where we were staying as a lovely treat to the end of our trip.
On to Chamonix and a night with Sauze & Patrick before chores around town and a transfer to Geneva to fly to the UK.
