Today I spent time cleaning as the change in rooms yesterday had created a lot of dust and much grass and mud had been tramped indoors.
Later in the day I baked some ginger fairlings.
Chris got stuck into making a cover for the well to make it safe and secure.
Wednesday 5th August
From the cottage bedroom window I could see a beautiful sunrise this morning.
This pic shows the three crops in the field next door....maize, barley and wheat.
We went out and popped in on our friend Henri. We said Bonjour to his wife and two young grandsons. I gave them a plant and some ginger fairlings. Henri cut me some artichoke flowers and dug us some potatoes.
He also gave us some fresh beans which we had for tea later.
We then went to Quimper with a long list of things to buy/investigate at the DIY stores there. We managed to get some of it and came back with some ideas too....mainly about the wall in the downstairs toilet and the sink unit in the cottage kitchen.
Thursday 6th August
Today I gave the kitchen wall its third coat of paint.
Chris worked on the wall in the downstairs toilet. It needs replacing so that the hand basin may be fixed on the wall.
Here you can see the stone wall revealed.
Time for a cuppa!
Friday 7th August
We went grocery shopping in Gourin followed by a quick visit to the notaire's office and the post office. We saw our lovely roofers working up on the town's pizzeria. We then went into Carhaix Plougher to check out Monsieur Bricolage DIY store and then into Brico Marche. Chris managed to get the panels and wood he required for the wall. I did a lot of mooching and looking at kitchen sinks.
Thanks for visiting!
