Hello from France

Hello. Just joined.
I'm an English lassie living in the center of France.
I enjoy "natural" things as much as possible and am experimenting with drying fruits. (more of that later)
I have a long-term partner, goats, sheep, 1 cat, dogs, ferrets, hens, ducks & geese so a varied life

Hopefully will chat with some of you soon

Cheers Haz

Hello Haz - And welcome. I'm guessing that for a lassie to be living in France, that you have to like living dangerously
At least you are in the middle instead of the outer edges as I think the people are nicer towards the middle of the country.

Since you have such a interesting set of companions, have you considered a career in writing children's books?

Happy posting!

Bob

Hello again
Thanks for the welcome, Bob.
With all that lot and A Significant Other Half (or so he thinks) you reckon I'll have time to write as well?

MomsKitchen - for goodness sake make sure you have a FORTRESS if you intend having some goats. It's not a good idea to have just one on their own. They pine for other company, even if you have a whole farm full of other animals. They also make Houdini look like a novice (at least mine do)

Cheers all

Haz

Thank you, everyone for the welcome. Sorry I couldn't get back yesterday.
Spent the afternoon picking raspberries and the evening making jam.
Also had tremendous thunder storms during the early evening through to early this morning.
