Well we have had 55 lambs since last week so life is quite hectic. Gavin has about 4/6 hours sleep a day and I am probably on about 6 which is pretty good or even normal for a lot of people. However, I have a preference for 7 and a half or 8 hours so there is an awful lot of cake, biscuits and chocolate being consumed at the moment to stay awake. Gavin is currently fast aleep in front of the telly psyching himself up for the night visit to the shed.
For those of you who read the blog regularly here is a picture of "A" lamb doing well with her mates at the shed.
Had an excellent weekend seeing a young band playing live in St. Foy La Grande, "Maniard," and the children enjoyed it so much I have decided to make an effort to take them out to see a bit more live music this summer. Too much sheep farming makes Franklins a dull family.
Whatever you are doing this weekend for Easter have a excellent time. Eat, drink and be merry spend time with friends and family, but drive safely as I see from the reports that road accidents are up for the month of March.
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
