Deafeningly quiet

As part of the agreement with the local Mayor we are in isolation for three weeks. While the rest of the country is still locked down we are in a very lucky position to be living in isolation anyway. Anouk from the Auberge is ferrying fresh water and food shopping to us which is amazing. In the meantime we are pottering in the garden and making odd things for the barn.

One such creative project was to make a cabinet for the gas bottles in the front porch. Four old table legs, some matchboard and the sides of some wooden draws (all salvaged); add a lick of paint and we now have a cabinet worthy of a farmhouse kitchen. We have also repainted the kitchen units, restored an old oak coffee table, and Breezy has finished her heart shaped cork board.

The local wildlife has also been enjoying the peace and quiet. The deer have eaten our beetroot and blet (sort of spinach) and we have seen a wild boar from the bed when having coffee in the morning.
