Sunday working

In the begining Having arrived in Salau yesterday evening about six, we unpacked the van of stuff for the gite in the village, cooked, ate and went to bed knackered.

This morning we drive the works Toyota over the bridge and unloaded everything else into the barn. No need to do a day of strimming as Olivier has evidently been grazing his donkeys on our land. The bramble cutting from the spring also paid off as there was little clearing needed before tackling the small outhouse at the front of the barn. The wall around the entrance was teetering dangerously, so we took it down to a stable layer and then started digging out the inside. Dug out soil was dumped round the back of the barn to back fill walled areas later. Finished off by searching out some oak beams from the old roof off the barn suitable for a door frame and lintels. Marked them up ready to cut on Monday. A beautiful sunny day, snow capped mountains; an idyllic way to start the holiday.
