Bob stands in the library and alerts me to the fact that the ladies from the Women's Cooperative are at the front gate. Having made little progress this week they have opted to work on a Saturday morning. It would have been helpful if they'd let us know.
The Old Farmer spent yesterday tinkering with the venerable Ford Transit motor home. His central heating still isn't working so he's planning to drive down to Perpignan where he hopes it will be warmer. He is rather unhappy that the village cats have discovered an open skylight in the roof of the old Ford and have been 'sheltering' inside.
Aude, the bipolar decaratrice, has failed to bring biscuits. Aude is glared at by Sophie. There is some consolation in the fact that Loic the heavily bifocaled gardener shows up to blow leaves. Loic is oblivious to the presence of two shaggy companions who follow along behind him redistributing his handiwork.
The cake display at the bakers still unexciting. However, the croissant is exceptional. There is little point in commenting on this as Bob and Sophie think all croissants are exceptional.
The apple tarts look OK. It's the red fruit ones that seem to be lacking in finesse.
There are Brownies !
This Scottish hotel has reopened. There are 70 different wallpapers. The bar looks like a great place to spend a wet highland afternoon : https://thefifearms.com/
