Here we are on a grey and showery November 1st truly entering into the rhythm of late autumn. The colours of the leaves changing this year have been exceptionally beautiful and the temperatures have been quite mild with some glorious sunny days. We have been busy with preparations for the Christmas period and also the extension for the butchery.
There is still a bit of work to do repainting the old room, and finding the right sink units and tables to install all the equipment on, but we are up and working again. Many thanks to everyone who either did, assisted or cheered on from the sidelines. I can honestly say that my working life has completely changed. Below is the view from the butchery window. Project rose garden I think I will call it 🤣🤣🤣. I will add it to our list of things to do, definitely after Christmas
Patrick has been busy with a little project that we may soon be able to sample... answers on a postcard 😉.....
Our middle child has returned to France with her boyfriend and they are currently emptying boxes and moving furniture around. Back to work for them both tomorrow. I think they are enjoying the fact that there is less distance to travel to get good bread and wine. They even enjoyed a few moments sitting in the sunshine today. I am a lucky Mummy for a bit with all 3 children 20 minutes from home.
