Harvesting garlic

This weekend we didn’t go camping but Friday night we did go up to Pepes outdoor bar for the first time this year, with Cerrie, Sonny and Stuart and Isabele. Just like the good old days, including the walk home under the stars.
Saturday I worked the morning, then Moira helped me for the afternoon giving us time to go the beach, another, for the first time this year. That night was the party for Sant Juan in the village. We made it nail 1 in the morning,but Moira had to get up and do Breakfast for 8 and the music was getting worse.
Sunday was a well needed home day, Moira had 2 changeovers and I had a chain saw to try out, as well as lights to hang.

Finally its hot, but really hot from one extreme to another. I am having to water the lawn, still haven’t been in the pool though, Moira has.
As far as the weekend went, well it was a good weekend, we stayed in Friday night as we had gone out Thursday night for Cerries birthday. Saturday morning I worked then we packed the car full of camping gear and set of 40 mins up the road to Albanya and its campsite Basagoda. Albanya is a small village with not even a shop as the shop owner has retired. It does have a bar so we stopped for a beer. It also has an observatory but seeing as it was overcast and one of the longest days of the year we gave looking at the stash a miss. The campsite was lovely, right next to the river Muga with a reasonably good restaurant.
Sunday I woke up early, to early to get a coffee at the bar so I sat in the sun and read my book. When breakfast was done we went for a walk up the Muga, stopping on the way back for Moira to sunbathe and me to read more in the shade. We got home to Garriguella via a beer in St Lorence de la Muga, watered the garden checked the pool and sat in the hammock to read more.
Back to reality Monday.

it feels like its rained every day for weeks, generally only in the evening and generally only when i havent taken along waterproofs to work.
thinfgs are a bit different at the moment as Pepes is shut, he handed his town bar over to a new couple, and is now when he is not looking after cows getting the tourtoise bar ready for sant Joan at the end of June. not to worry though as Chez Luisette is open, on Friday we went with Inger and her daughter with her daughters sons and Irena. bit more expensive then Pepes, a lot more expensive but we had a really good time, even got shown how to floss and got to pull out of the closet some really old children friendly jokes.
Saturday i worked in the morning then we went to Corca as Moira had a stall selling her jewellery at the anglican church spring fair. No one came, still she managed to sell some pieces.
that night we stayed in to watch Britains got talent
Sunday after doing the washing and the weekly swimming pool clean, we went to Palau to prune a hedge then to Roses as it was the roses fair of Roses, as usual there was very few roses. next week we will not be going to Roses as it was the second week in a row.
