After our Spain trip we decided to pop in and see Clive and Jacqui (Stevie and Dave’s Dad) who live not too far away. We stopped at the border for a little Spanish fodder first though which was scrummy and then on to their lovely house in the Gers area. They had friends staying so the wine and food was flowing from as soon as we landed. Great to catch up and went back ladened with plums and figs from their garden delicious.
Other friends Terry and Ali were in the area after walking the Cathar Way and were ending at Foix so we popped over to see them for lunch. They found a lovely little restaurant and kindly treated us to lunch. Lots of chatter and catch up before we headed back to the barn via the DIY shop to buy a shower tray how exciting….10 years down the line maybe an indoor shower????
We stopped for a quick hello at the auberge and a couple of glasses with Rene and Anouk before heading home for a very light supper as we were full from our lovely lunch.
Garden still brimming with veggies, wild boar have been having a right old time here in our absence, fire on, washing up to dry, internet session with a glass of wine and some thought time about what we need to do before we leave in just over 2 weeks. Time has flown by this summer. So once again the list gets longer as we try and do lots of little jobs as well as have folk over for dinner/lunch before we go again.
