Well I have to admit we have fired up (ha ha) one of our woodstoves. I think it is a little earlier than usual but number 1 child had lots of washing to dry and the weather has not been playing ball.
The sheep were all moved around this weekend into their overwinter groups and we will be trundling the main flock down the hill next to the river this week.
It is the first time in a number of weeks that I have spent any time helping Gavin with the sheep and it was nice to be outside for a change.
Number 2 child is recovered and back at school and number 3 is getting into the swing of all the usual activities.
What a quiet weekend at the markets. I think everyone was put off by the fog. However it was a lovely atmosphere as usual and there was time to have a chat with everyone as well.
Next week on the 24th I will be in Pomport, near Bergerac, in front of the salle for a drop off point if anyone wishes to place an order could they please do so before Wednesday evening this week.
Seeyou soon Helen
