Yes school holidays fnally began and with that everyone disappeared from the markets to obviously accompany my girls and their Grandma to Rocamadour for a brief foray into historical real-life education. The weather has been quite chilly so sadly whilst they were away the pool was not well used at the campsites where they stayed but otherwise a good time was had by all. I on the other hand was left at home to entertain Peaches, our delightfully placid bundle of fluff always ready to settle for a cuddle and a sleep!
The girls of course were mortified they had missed out on this little stunt and astonished that I had not video-ed it, however they were quite happy to have not been included in the eyelid pouncing contest in the morning at 6.00. So if I am less than full of the joys of spring at the markets this week my sincerest apolgies.
We are experimenting with markets this week and trying out Coutras market on Wednesday and hopefully St. Seurin-sur-l'Isle on Sunday morning. Obviously Riberac and Ste-Foy will be attended as normal. If anyone would like a pork roast with crackling I have a few for the markets this week so let me know.
Patrick has been assisting our friends with their very hairy sheep this week having a warm up ready to face the main flock. His reward was food in copious quantities and a swim. Funny I don't think Gavin and I managed to strike that deal for the home flock.
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
