The barn smells of mushrooms

Got up, had breakfast and out the door down the valley shopping. Picked up the missing 18cm nails on the way to the laundry. Machine laoded and started gave us half an hour to get some garlic and salami from the market.

St Girons market is lovely at 9am in the morning. Just a few local folk about. Stall holders still setting up and pricing things up. Easy to get up and down the rows.

Collect the laundry and off to the supermarket to pick up provisions. Back up the valley for a coffee with Renee at the Auberge and back at the barn before noon.

Unload the van, laundry out and back onto the terrace.

With a prawn & aioli break for lunch we finished the framework in time for a short forage for ‘shrooms adding another handful to the drying rack.

Baked merlin (fish)  and salad supper followed by a crossword or two.
