Haven't had time to come here today, until now.
We had to leave here at 10am to get to Riberac to meet friends who live 1h30mins the other side of Riberac, then we were all meeting other friends who live near there and going to a restaurant for lunch.
But I had to do Archie's 2 big penicillin injections, the oral anti-inflammatory medicine and clean up the wound. Archie wouldn't keep still, then the 2nd injection site bled, although I'd made sure the needle wasn't in a blood vessel. At least I managed to squirt the oral medicine down his throat.
Then the farmer arrived with hay, big 200kg round bales. I had to take all the string off it. By then OH appeared looking anxious as it was time to leave and I hadn't had breakfast. Had to rush in, wash and change, then drove like the clappers to arrive just in time. But our friends had arrived early and hadn't realised the car park was a pay in advance one, they rarely are in France. They went for a 10 minute wander and got a parking ticket.
Then we went to the other friends, but I had an elderly moment and couldn't remember where their house was! Found it in the end. Had very nice lunch on a terrace overlooking the Dronne river.
