Back to work

Today the sun has been splitting the paving slabs all day, it's been perfect boating weather, so no small surprise that I have been working away at the vineyard doing tours, tastings, waiting tables in the cafe and washing-up and cleaning in the kitchen.

Jackie, however, has had all day to luxuriate in the surroundings, feed swans, sleep in and finish treating the 'new to us' garden furniture with linseed oil.

And a jolly good job she's done too!

The above picture shows the table half-way through it's first coat of linseed oil. All the chairs and the table were first given a thorough scrubbing with 'Sugar-Soap' which munched through the old finish, dirt and bird poo in no time!
