Look at what Gavin stumbled upon in the wood behind the barn. He took a photo of our new baby whilst Mum was screaming at the top of the tree and then left it well alone. We have no idea what it is and we have loads of birds of prey here so any suggestions welcome. But isn't it the cutest fluff ball. I hope Mum turned up soon as we are also surrounded by foxes lets hope the little cutey made it.
More baby pictures. Twins again this week. Quite a fragile pair these two we will see how they do.
It has been a very busy hot weekend with a very spectacular lightning show on Saturday night/Sunday morning. The end of year concerts for children and their activities have begun so we spend a lot of time runing between A and B fitting it all in and discussing the organisational capabilities of each particular association and how much better it would be if we were in charge. Which of course as we all know ain't never gonna happen.
Number 2 had her last day at school for the school year and has retired to her bedroom to recover from her exhausting life or to prepare herself for the hectic weeend she has planned socialising and partying. Oh the life of a teen I remember it well. Although on the party front I can't say that we middle-aged fogies have been doing badly. Last Saturday I managed a 20 and a half hour day which included a market a baking session a music concert and a birthday party, starting again on Sunday at 8.30am with our automatic alarm clock which goes something like this "ring ring, ring ring, the sheep are out again the b******s see you later click" we have selected the voice as the nice friendly neighbour voice option so that one doesn't get too grumpy first thing. So that was followed by evacuating more sheep from the shed then lunch and then another party. OMG was it warm and airless on Sunday afternoon.
Thank goodnes the orange alert for stormy weather came to nothing in our area as our newly released children would have had an uncomfortable time in their new environment.
For those who are not aware and live in this area there is a British Weekend in Brantome over the 21st and 22nd June where there will be typically English activities and also a market selling British products Gavin and Patrick will be manning the stand on the Sunday from 9am as I am otherwise concerned with girls and ballet for that weekend. Talking of Number One he has exams all this week which will be interesting/boring/tedious/hot/brain-taxing for him. Break a leg.
Anyway hope to see some of you soon at one of our venues.
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
