We’ve spent another week with Marian at ‘la petite maison de bois’ in Cahuzac. We’ve done various tasks this last week including tackling the leylandii hedge between Marian and her neighbour’s garden, painting another village bench, varnishing another side of the cabin, wood shredding, weeding, walking the dogs etc.
Marian has had a house full with various family and friends staying.
We had a very pleasant afternoon and evening at the lake at Lougratte a few miles away which has a small campsite attached to it.
I brushed up on my basketball skills with Marylou but alas I’m not as fast, or fit, as I once was!
We also spent last weekend at the campsite by the lake at Lougratte which was great as the temperatures have been in the thirties and too hot to do much other than swim, read and play petanque.
We have come to the end of our three weeks here at Cahuzac with Marian and her fur-kids and it’s time now to take the van in for the repair to the wing tomorrow.
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time here and it has given us a glimpse into village life in France.
We’ve also met some lovely people and felt part of the community here, even if for a short while. Last night Marian’s neighbour, Frank, invited us all out for a meal with him, his brother, daughter and son in law to say thank you to us for tidying the hedge up which was very kind and we had a lovely evening in Villereal. Alas I forgot to take the camera though!
Whilst ‘Ollie’ is in for the repair, which will take 3-4 days, we are doing a bike tour around the area. The forecast is for the temperatures to be in the mid thirties so I’m not sure how far we’ll get but I think we need to make the effort!
