I have decided I am just not tech savvy enough for modern life. I may revert to mud pictures on the wall as quite frankly that looks like all I can manage. I have just written this entire blog and then I pressed the delete button so it all disapeared. Clever hey. But that is not the end of my ignorance, I discovered a funny picture next to the google bar on my smart phone last night and wondered what it was, so clicked on it. To my horror a list of titles of windows I had open on google appeared. It was an epic quantity and took me some time to delete. On completion of this task the little picture on the google bar became a number one. And then incredibly I managed to download meteo France in a record amount of time. So having fessed up to the kids, who rolled around on the floor laughing (ROTFL, I believe), I am completely humiliated.....again! Welcome to parenthood.
So back to life down on the farm. 78 births since last Saturday we are definitely lambing, and as usual a week earlier than anticipated. I wonder if Gavins adding up is as bad as my use of tech. We have about 130 lambs in total now including the ones from earlier on in the year and in the picture is Patricks pretty sheep from last year who had to have an asissted birth courtesy of the aforementioned shepherd Patrick. It has been a very busy week, helped along by me deciding to do a third market in Saint Astier. And also a huge thank you to the sausage stuffer, which officially contributed to 1 and a half days of time lost going backwards and forwards to Perigueux in search of a machine that had enough power to actually produce a sausage worthy of eating. This was a very stressful, finance draining experience for all of us, and I hope one not to be repeated in the near future. I cannot thank enough our industrial kitchen utensils man in Perigueux for being eminently accommodating about the useless, couldn't stuff a turkey, first purchase and finding us, hopefully, as
I was going to take a photo of my 2 sleeping boys but that felt a bit mean. The work load is quite exhausting this month.
See you all soon
