We got up early and set off for Ikea in Turin, calling in to see Lin and Chris Davison on the way, a lovely chalet they’ve bought!!! We filled 2 trolleys with kitchen equipment and a table or so, the only hitch being no birch tables to match the chairs we are getting delivered tomorrow, I’m hoping the choice of oak will match the kitchen cabinets and not look too bad. Still we can cover it with a cloth for now. Dodged the Italian traffic on the way back, and went out for dinner, the Bellotte in the village, which does an excellent Fondue Bourgogne. The dog thinks France is wonderful (Woof !), and the French think Meg’s lovely too. Everywhere is quite happy for her to sit under the table .
