All to bed by 9.30 (your choice whether that is AM or PM)
Bedroom windows open at night , please, at least a little bit to listen to the night passing by
All out of bed for family breakfast and no-one to eat until the last is pulled from bed
You are expected to get up later and later each morning; the peace of this place is the cause.
At least part of each day beside the pool
Into the pool everyday, once at least in the morning and once in the evening: no exceptions! Consideration of charging for the non-use of the pool is on the cards!
Buy fresh bread daily from a local bakery. Assign the job of “baguette fairy” the night before to a driver to bring back bread and fresh croissants for everyone.
10 minutes weeding and 10 minutes watering of flower beds each day and then each hug a tree
Walk down to the corner and back each evening after supper. These walks are to be extended further and further during your stay. Alternative routes are acceptable. Stars, glow worms and fireflies can guide your way after the sun has set.
Watch the TV weather forecast on Channel 3 at about 7.20 pm or 8.00 pm. It is sometimes more-or-less accurate.
All lights in the night sky count as stars, comets, satellites or aircraft. Keep a count. Bats, owls, etc count as other identified “beings”.
If you hear bleating or sheep bells, count yourself very lucky: they are about a kilometre or two away to the south and west on the other side of the valley. You will hear a donkey sometimes from about a kilometre away to the northwest.
Sit quietly near the pool without moving, or making yourselves obvious, may result in the deer and/or wild boar appearing at the bottom of the field.
Grumbles to be left here and good memories to be taken home at the end of the stay here: no exceptions!
