'Where is our lunch?'
'Where is our lunch?' Bleat and Ewe2 worriedly look on, waiting for some feed. They have two homes to choose from: one is a nice little 3 sided tin-roofed house, facing the sun which warms the roof, and the other is more snug - with a double glazed window! Spoilt? Never! They are both in-lamb so need a few little home comforts...
Poor birds - the seed in this birdfeeder was frozen solid - it was minus 12c last night...we dismantled it and re-filled with fresh seed and left some fatty-spread bread out too.
Cat footprints - fortunately in the front garden, but our two cats are too lazy to catch birds at the moment - it takes all their effort to go out when nature calls...
For anyone watching TV or listening to the radio over the last 5 or 6 days, I know I am stating the obvious, but like everyone else, we are snowed in... We're STILL waiting for the snowplough to clear the road between our village and the local town. Of course, the snow fell at the weekend, and as the weekend is sacrosanct in France, we knew that nothing would start to be cleared until Monday morning.
Our son is stuck in Limoges, but staying with various friends around the town and enjoying time off from lycée although exams are soon looming, and our daughter is at home, helping feed the sheep and also with her mock exams already postponed twice.
Our village postoffice is closed due to Madame not being able to get in (although the Maire's secretary can take over ) but the postman hasn't been seen since last Friday...so my Ebay and Etsy parcels will be delayed.
Heigh-ho, we've got lots of supplies in so we will just sit it out and wait for the thaw.
In the meantime, here are a couple of photos of the white stuff.
