Much excitement last night when we discovered that we have at least two hedgehogs visiting the garden. G heard their funny snuffling noise and at first thought someone was trying to saw down the hedge (what an imagination!). Any way, then he spotted the little chaps rooting around and this morning the grass bears the evidence where they have been digging up worms. It must be too early or not cold enough yet for them to hibernate.
Success (well in a temporary sort of way)! After trip number 5 to Libourne – 325 km/200 miles, this morning I got a temporary card to authorise me to sell at markets. It is valid for a month and would you believe it, I’ve to go back in a month to collect the ‘proper’ one. C’est la vie française!
