Wow, wasn’t the Bodyguard good on BBC1 last night! Let’s hope we can continue to watch the rest of the episodes wherever we are!
It’s a good job we’re not going anywhere fast! Got up and ready at a reasonable time. Took a while to empty and fill Dave (slowly) with water. Drove only about 15 minutes to an Intermarche in Elven. Shopping takes a while too, firstly because the stores are so big, and secondly because we need to understand what we’re buying! Forgot to pack can opener, and of course packed some cans that don’t have a ring pull. And yes, the tins we brought with us are new and not some out of date relics from my cupboard! Shopping was €69. So far, can’t see that food shopping is any cheaper. Also disappointed with fresh fruit and veg - definitely not up to Mr M&S standard! Just one yellow pepper was over €1 and lots of the stuff wouldn’t even go on the shelves at home, as already overripe and some a bit mouldy.
Tintin thought we’d fill up with LPG - well, it’s all a bit cold and hasn’t gone well yet when filling! This time some gas was escaping, but when we tried to carry on topping up, we couldn’t - went to pay, and started again, and then paid again - however, now full for less than €10 - which should last over a month!

En route drove over a bridge across the river Vilaine? In Marzan - looked very pretty.
