Friday 20 August 2010


This morning it was a bit foggy but it didn't matter because we had to go to the supermarket to get all the things we need at the gite. As well as food and drink we bought some decent sized drinking glasses, a bread knife and a couple of knives for cooking. Not sure how previous occupants of the gite managed without them and why they aren't in the gite already. We'll probably leave them here as they were cheap and we have limited space in the car.

This afternoon it is incredibly hot, windy and there's barely a cloud in the sky. We sat outside under the umbrella for a while but it was still too hot for me. We've had to sit inside most of the afternoon reading. There are lots of lizards on the patio an last night one of them came into the gite. While we were sat out last night there was a little mouse playing on the gravel area in front of the gite.

I'm just a out to summon up the courage to go outside to light the barbecue because it's still very hot out there. Unfortunately there's no thermometer about but I think it must be in the mid thirties and there's precious little shade to hide in.
