I wonder how many kilometres a cat travels in a year? Peaches, pictured above sorry about the quality, obviously decided to scan herself so that we would remember what she looked like as her plan was to leave us for 5 days. She has returned tonight, thank goodness, and has had 3 meals and some milk already. She will probably sleep for 5 days now. Oh look she has already started....
We reckon we must do around 40,000km. Is that alot? I think that ought to be a yes, as in theory we work from home. An average month is 3287km which is 109 km/day that is alot of backwardsing and forwardsing in a very small area of France. Working on the theory that an ordinary diesel car with current prices in France would cost about a euro/km We are working with about 4000euros/year of diesel. If Gavins approximate calculations are correct running Electric Kangoo will cost about 2000euros/year. Not to mention the saving on servicing costs (or lack of servicing savings). No wonder the powers that be are not keen on encouraging the technology. How on earth would they run all these countries without fuel taxes.
I took Kangoo out today on a delivery run. That was fun. I have never had a car that is so easy to drive.
Don't panic folks I will stop being a car bore soon.
What to do with your sausagemeat that is super quick and super delicious..... Here is Number 3's holiday offering for our stomachs. And very delicious they were.
We have also been party to chocolate brownies, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate and coffee cake, rolled,stuffed breast of mutton pork goulash and toad in the hole this last half term. And we have finally cooked the Christmas Cake. Gosh life is tough living at our house.
It appears that we have tavelled some way in the kitchen, on the farm and on the road this autumn holiday but managed to end it by only tavelling into the garden to eat lunch outside in the November sunshine. 24 degrees. For us that is quite a treat.
See you all soon
