12 hundred sausages, 11 kilos of bacon, 10 trays of sausagemeat, 9 knives sharpened, 8 lamb legs ordered, 7 sleep disturbed nights, 6 o'clock in the morning, 5..... markets visited, 4 large half pigs, 3 meals missed, 2 evenings out and one very tired Franklin Fa...mi...ly .
Well what a busy busy month it has been and I suspect that this picture is a fair representation of me on Sunday. I hope you are all having a good run up to the big day. I am looking forward to not cooking for Christmas and enjoying my take away curry instead.
I will be doing something a little different for the next month not that doing the accounts will be very exciting, but it certainly will be different.
This will be the last blog of 2014 so we would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and enjoyable New Year. A big thank you to you all for your continued support for our little business it is heartwarming to know that so many people take the time to read about our family antics. 2015 will be a
milestone for us in France as it marks 10 years of us running a business here.
I hope you will all be around to share it with us. Hmmm I may have to do something eventful.....watch this space.
Warmest regards and see you all soon
I am farming sheep and goats on the Dordogne/Gironde border with my husband and our 3 children. We have an on farm butchery and sell our meat direct to the public via the markets and delivery points in our local area
