Well our eldest has finally been released into the world of responsibility and money mangement and we are getting used to his absence. There is significantly less washing, cooking and cleaning to do and even more hot water in the tank at the end of the day. Interestingly he left with 6 packs of sausages stuffed in his suitcase I wonder if he will return when he runs out. I am now waiting for other 2 to get to the 10 days after rentrée obligatory temperature/fever day.
I was out delivering in Lamothe Montravel and St Méard de Gurçon today enjoying the sunshine and noticing the seasonal drift into autumn with the colours of the countryside and gardens in the area.
It is quite a relaxed time of year everyone seems to be recovering from the chaos of visitors and gite cleaning that accompanies July and August. I am recovering from an August feeding frenzy (thank goodness) after a quiet July.
For those of you who stumble on this blog from DVN then whilst Annie is offline I will keep you up to date on deliveries and markets and this weeks special sausages and burgersfrom here.
See you at the next market
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
