Firstly here is an update on Peaches who likes trees. She also likes sofas.
And here is the picture you were meant to get last week. I am pleased to say that Patrick has done a few more sheep now, he is probably about halfway through the flock. The lambs were a little confused afterwards whilst they tried to track down Mum as they all look the same with their coats off so the farm has been even more baa-ry than usual. I had thought that this year was a particularly vocal batch of lambs and my suspicions were confirmed when our lovely neighbour down the hill Mr.Lansmarie also commented on the fact.
We, the girls and I, have just returned from the butchery after a long afternon linking and packing. I admit that in an effort to pander to number 3 we allowed her to select the music of the day and we have just boogied and sung our way through "Barbie Girls 2" the CD. It has pink CD cover and is inappropriately named as there is not a single Barbie or Ken song on it (huge sigh of relief) I think most people need bit of "S Club 7" in their weaker moments. On our return home we remembered there were no biscuits in the house so we have just eaten half a bar of cooking chocolate. Things were desperate.
For those who would like an update on last weeks misery in total 15 lambs died and there are still 18 (I think) being treated but they are looking like they will make it. For those who know me this is not something that I will dwell upon, although the bank manager might, I will put it down to "character building stuff" as my Dad would have said and move on.
Ok, so, I have tried my new Hot Chorizo Sausages today and if you like a bit of fire with your barbecue (ha ha) they are really very good.
Patrick goes on holiday next week lucky thing, to the beach, and Gavin will spend the week dreaming about the beach I suspect. We did have Sunday off last week and left the big children to fend for themselves and look after the sheep whilst we relaxed next to a friends pool and had the joys of experiencing a fast connection to the internet which meant you could watch a whole film in the alloted time and have no buffering. Wow what an amazing experience that was. I am now researching satellite internet so that we can live in the modern world.
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
