I did not have a good morning today! Friends who are away asked me to keep an eye on their chickens and cat for a few days. The cat was just fine, but I had a problem with the door on the barn where the chickens are kept, and I had 5 escapees!! I managed to get two back in fairly quickly, but ended up going to find neighbours to help me with the other 3. I finally left with escapees back under lock and key, but it was a nerve wracking couple of hours! Life here is never dull!
This may well be my last post for a week or more, as I pack up the house here in France in readiness for my return to the UK this weekend for winter. David, my friend and neighbour, will keep the house and garden in order until I return next Spring. He also keeps an eye on the weather, and makes sure the heating is on low enough to use little fuel, but enough to stop everything from freezing. He is a very special person.
I will continue with my French posts while in the UK, as I have many photos; enough, I hope! I will probably post a little less often, and as I will again be cooking for two, I may post a few recipes to keep everything up and running.
Meanwhile here are a few pictures of some local barns which I though looked quite interesting and one of our sunsets.
