Look what we had for lunch. Along with the Italian meatballs I even managed to coordinate the colour scheme to match the Italian flag. Green, red and white (ok the spaghetti is kind of beige) for those of you not up to speed on flag colours.
Above is Mummys version.
Left is Number 3s version as you can see with a slightly more vibrant red. Possibly a little truer to the Italian flag however.
Well once again we have been outfoxed by the weather, so with all our well laid plans weaning and moving lambs out of the shed into the freedom of outside where they can gambol and eat green grass like all good lambs should, we did it and then the poor little mights have been rained on practically everyday. Thankfully the temperature has not plummeted as well so they are soldiering on. I feel sure that the weather will change soon and then I expect we will all be moaning about how roastingly hot it is and how we have no energy to do anything.
Then I suppose we will all want to do a bit more of this. Thanks to Bluey for providing the suitable pose. Which is exactly what I looked like on Saturday afternoon/evening when I returned from the second day at Ste Foy la Grande market. I obviously need more training to cope with this 2 big markets a week I managed a whooping 14 hours recovery sleep during the weekend so the theory is I am full of energy this week. Hmmm......
Number One is conspicuous by his absence from home currently. I am sure that he is working very hard towards his final exams for the year in the centre of Bordeaux where he is surrounded by peace, tranquility and no distractions;-) (In my dreams)
Number 2 has less than 2 weeks before she finished for the year and then she will be able to recline and do nothing but laze about all summer;-) (In her dreams)
Number 3 is being creative as already demonstrated and having just lost signal for most of our telly channels (the dish needs maintenance and chief maintenance man is otherwise occupied) has rediscovered the ability to talk incessantly about anything and everything and is just generally the happy smiley number 3 she always is.
Anyhow I will see you all soon somewhere....
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
