Hey it is just like being in Buxton again. When we arrived in Montcuq in Summer 2003 ( the year of the Canicule heatwave ) we told at that Christmas that it had not snowed in Montcuq for 10 years well it has snowed every single winter since. Round and about Christmas time albeit only for a day or two !!!!
Have to confess to not going too far from the homestead it is bitterly cold as well. The chicks are fine and don't seem to mind the snow ( have this inkling that maybe they are just a bit thick at times !)
Apparently it is the Grandmother's Birthday today. 87 years old today and still ruling with a rod of iron. But hey that is not a bad innings is it.
Taken about 1066 I think !!

Gina is still a bit under the weather but I have persuaded her to do a video of the chickens. Apparently if the lady chickens mature ( which ours have ) at this time of year they are not going to produce eggs until the daylight hours get longer. HENCE no eggs yet, really healthy looking chickens - fabulous - but no EGGS yet .
Think you get the message.
Still never mind, won't be long and they should be strong as oxes when they do. Here is the little video.It really is hilarious when you see them running around after each other's bit of spaghetti I have to say we do not serve bolognese with this and it is best Wheat SPAGHETTI. no eggs whatsoever involved.It has also been yet another glorious day in Quercy Blanc, don't you just love that name,and the bulbs in the garden are peeping through getting ready for the spring, so there you go we are off again on another year. Sorry no spaghetti on the video that one was toooooooooooo long this is a little on and with any luck It should load OK.
While the video is loading, I would like to mention that I have not had a walk for 2 days, I have been round that field till I am dizzy - Hope she gets better soon.The video was too long as well so here is a photo or two.
I am not too keen on the new Blog writing facilities why do things always change when you have got used to them? Incidently Ben looks as if he may have a been doing a dance here. Which dance who knows ???

Oh boy is Buddy better. He keeps pushing in at dinnertime and I think all this enforced rest has made him little Mr Pushy !!!!
Jim says he is getting above himself he certainly is getting over and above me.
She went to the hospital today for some Xrays of the breathing appartatus and she looked pretty please so I guess all is OK. She was going on about the Christmas lights in Cahors apparently they are fan dabby dosie. Well I might not be a Crankie but I am a Scot.
