It's hot. Mid-30's yesterday. More of the same forecast for today. Long haired dogs and their owners are up and about early while it's still cool.
Sophie follows me round the garden as I check that the irrigation system is working. She maintains a healthy.. and studious...distance from the edge of the pool. A girl can never be too careful where water is concerned.
The German billionaire is reroofing one of the outhouses of the chateau. Despite the early hour workmen and a large yellow JCB are already busy when we pass. This is the day of the oft postponed court case so there is no sign of the German Billionaires Builder who is presumably on his way to Toulouse. The Anger Management Mans car is nowhere to be seen which would hint at the case being heard this morning.
