Saturday 27 May

I had a restless night as it rained heavily in the night, so I don’t hear when Sara leaves early to go to Vannes market.

When I do eventually wake up, it’s straight to work with the gel.

The instructions say leave on for 5 mins to remove 3 layers of paint.

Hmm, I try this to start with but have to revert to leaving it for 30 minutes.

I hate to think how many layers are on here!

But I get there eventually!

I’m not sure what I should do about the Silicon though so post a question on Facebook.

I get conflicting opinions, some say take it off, others say leave. So confusing!

My friend Jo advises that I should use Primer even though the paint I have says it’s not needed.

So it’s a trip into Ploermel.

In Weldom, I buy more stripper, silicon gel and primer. This is costing me a fortune.

I also remember to get a set of keys cut for Sara. Our front door one costs a ridiculous €25 as it’s a special one.

I buy a few more foodie bits in L’Eclerc, including just two eggs. They are local ones that cost 33c each.

Back to the house, and say goodbye to Sara who is heading home now.

Whilst I’m going to head to the beach at Pointe du Bil again.

I park my bike and the Gendarmes turn up…luckily they aren’t after me!

When I get back home it’s still light, so I decide to crack on with some more stripping, this time on my bedroom window
