Can Carbo, Figueres

I am at Michael Muldoon's Can Carbo near Figueres which is about 2 hours north of Barcelona. Gavin came over with me and we are helping Michael turn it from a derelict farmhouse into an upmarket Bread and Breakfast. If ever you are travelling in this area next year or later then I strongly recommend you stay for a couple of nights. There's Barcelona, Figueres birthplace of Dali, the Costa Brava (much nicer than it sounds) and Peralada where they have Glyndebourne like concerts. Can Carbo will be lovely and Michael will be the perfect landlady.

Gavin and I got here on Tuesday night and we're staying until Monday. We have been cleaning the kitchen, moved 100 bags of cement into the store room and then cleared stones and rubbish from the stairs up to the private residence. We have got to finish that today.

Why doesn't that surprise me about Dad - I bet he bossed everyone about too! x

For the record, George may have exaggerated on the cement bag front: not quite 100, but 50. Also, he only turned up at the end of the job and then took all the credit.

Say hi to Gavin and Mike from me. Hope the bags of cement were small ones. Glad to see dogs are allowed in Spain!
