The weather here is fab at the moment, hot, sunny, with clear skies and dewy mornings, perfect for my growing vegetables and topping up my tan!
The only things missing are my children who went off at 6am this morning for an extended holiday to the UK where they can see their friends and family members they've been missing. it's really strange them not being here and the place is far too quiet. You'd think there would be constant noise with all these animals around but it's not, well apart from the dogs barking right now and the crickets chirping!
Scruffy or Vasko the dog is still with us and has moved into the yard area, he's mainly quiet and happy to laze about all day. He's now wearing a lovely flea and tick collar and has been de-wormed along with the rest of the dogs so should start putting some weight on and generally feeling better in himself. He likes to follow me about in case I have any food for him as I often sneak him a small treat lol. The pigs are doing great and have also had some treats today, our friend Jordani came round to say he had boxes of free food for the animals and we had to take the ex-camper van-now pick up to his to get it.....we came home with 10 boxes of pitta breads so they'll be shared out between the animals over the next week or so.
Tomorrow we have hay to collect from the field, more chillies to plant, animals to feed/water etc and hopefully there'll be time for a siesta too. With the temperatures rising daily it's now time to adopt the meditteranean (spelling?) afternoon snooze to get out of the heat and save getting burnt to a crisp. At least I don't have to worry about the kids getting heat stroke now or not applying sunscreen. I'll sign off for now but would like to ask if you like my new theme/background. I'm not sure if it's a little over the top and would like your opinion please.
