Hamish says its snowtime.......

Hiya All
Sorry about the lack of blog yesterday, Montcuq and indeed most of Europe was in the throes of a Great White Snowstorm. I believe it has been much worse in England in particular Kent. Where the grandma (Gina's Mum) and several siblings of hers (Gina's ) are located.
But have quite a good list of news from the nether regions of Lot in South West France.

1. We have an egg. I consider this to be the most important piece of news as my patient readers have had to bear the brunt of all my wailing about a certain lack of them. They had a fight about who was going to have the egg and she started crying so, of course, she got the egg. Lots of uming and aring going on so guess it was OK.

2. The local bird population. They have been feeding relentlessly at our bird stations, we have three located all round the house. But it was so COLD and the little tinker on the left and all his friends have been chucking out all the sunflower seeds on the floor till they find one that qualifies as good enough for a goldfinch! So we set up bird feeders on the window sills and this enabled us to take pictures like the one on the left.

3. This picture is to illustrate how much snow we had. You should have heard her going on about it being just like living in Buxton again. Never lived there myself. Buddy has. He reckons it was great in the winter you could see a rabbit on Axe Edge from Solomn's Temple. Must say it was mighty cold and Buddy and I only ventured out when it was absolutely necessary.

4. Now this picture deserves I reckon, not least because I managed not to step in it, an award of some kind. It is a genuine Snow Angel !!!!!! I think that is the prettiest thing I have ever seen. Let us hope it is an omen of some kind.

NEWSFLASH. Jim has just handed Gina ANOTHER EGG.

This is more than we could have hoped for. They are real chickens laying real eggs. I though maybe this was some kind of hoax and these chickens were the non laying variety. What's that written on it. Wowwwwwwwwwww let battle commence. Think Jim won this round.

See you all tomorrow keep warm and safe - no just egging you on.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
