Yes, a lot of chat while we've been eating dinner and watching TV.
Hello and welcome Fire Lily. I, too, had a smallholding when I was a lot younger. We lived in England then, now I live in Dordogne, France. I had a couple of Jersey cows that I milked by hand and a load of chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, quail etc and a huge veg. garden.
Good to hear from you, DD. French employers tax is a nightmare. I think that is the main reason there is so much unemployment in France, people just can't afford to employ anyone. I have read about Le Chateau de Gateau from time to time on Facebook. It looks so welcoming, full of smiling faces.
