We did not change the alarm and after a quick breakfast headed off down the valley with trailer, rubbish, recycling and an old sink to drop at the déchet (Council tip). Yup, it’s not a typo, we actually had something to throw away. The article in question was part of the kitchen we salvaged from Chamonix and now is surplus to requirements.
First stop is Cazale to buy a trailer load of Spanish Cement; next Intermarche for laundry and food shop. A quick stop at a jeweller for a watch battery and onto La Forgue for wood, concrete reinforcement bars and a load of plastic drainpipe.
If you are super organised with a list, shopping goes very smoothly!
Back up the valley to the tip. Low and behold having dropped off the sink we picked up a double glazed window and a picture frame.
Unloaded the cement and dragged it up to the barn before lunch of red mullet salad which Breezy prepared.
In the afternoon we did a mammoth internet session and made some strawberry and rhubarb jam. A chilled afternoon and evening with a hot prawn salad for supper.
