We found some…..

Woke up to lovely blue skies after a bit of a lie in. The blue skies did not last for long and we had sunshine and showers on and off all day.

We decided to make a start on the ceiling in the bathroom, so first step was to make it bug proof. We found the mesh and staple gun again and got all the areas between the beams protected.

A quick measure up and we realised we did not quite have enough insulation left over from the outbuilding to complete the ceiling so we thought we would leave that until we can do it all in one go as such.

Al made a start on clearing the ballast from the front of the barn and I cleared all the tin from the back of the barn so the place is beginning to look a bit neater.

Run out of bread so we had omelette for lunch and as it was drizzling we sat inside, had very few lunches inside this time which has been lovely.

Determined to find some cepes we set off again into the woods for an explore and towards the end of our little wander we came across them…and they were in reasonable condition too. Did find quite a few Death Caps on the way which we left behind!!!

On our way back we bumped into 4 oldies who had been walking and wanted to have a looking at what we had in our bag and they were great and proceeded to tell us all the names and which stems to eat and which stems not to eat etc etc. We would not have had a clue before our outing with Lee so we have found our first little place to look for them hoping for many more.

A little mushroom starter tonight I think.


Donkeys still here and determined to get into the outbuilding for fodder..so we took them to the other side of the river hoping they will take a while before heading across again. Hope to see Olivier the donkey man at the market tomorrow and see if he would like to move them!!!!

Seems to have dried up so blogging outside before pasta surprise for tea, down to the last of our food. Hope the sun shines for a good trip to the market tomorrow.
