First part of my new blog
Well, I have been wondering for some time how I could allow you lovely people to reply to what is on my website. Then it occurred to me how others do it and here we are! All of this techie stuff is a big learning curve for me.
This came about when a forum I used crashed and did not look like being fixed. There were several regulars who missed the daily chats. So I set up my website and attached a forum. That has grown well and we are all together again.
Then I thought about my blog and how I always enjoyed writing it and here we are!
Life is predictably much the same here.
This is our one new addition this year. No idea if it is male or female but time will tell. The hen was sitting on 9 eggs but only this one hatched. I think the weird weather had a lot to do with it. It will mean I finish this year with twelve chickens.
I have now enclosed them in my back garden which I am not happy about but it is keeping them safe from the fox. I have lost rather too many chickens and ducks to the fox this year. This means my back garden is less than pretty as they scratch about and create dust baths. I have plans to acquire some more tractor tyres to create flower beds. I want to use one as a herb garden too. I currently have courgettes growing in one in the veg patch and they have done very well! The good thing about the tyres is they are free! I like to upcycle when I can.
The first of many I hope
I have lived in France for almost eight years now. In that time I have gradually simplified my life and worked at improving my carbon footprint. On a world scale there is little I can do but I can make a difference in my corner. I welcome comments but would ask all to maintain the peace that I work hard at promoting.
