The dogs are howling outside the back dog just begging to go walkies, down to the beach, it's not that they HAVE to go out right at this precise moment, it is that they know l am in the office and a mere hurling themselves at the back door possibly isn't gaining my attention quickly enough. " OK you horrid lot, l WILL be out in a moment but first...."!
My dogs are a bit like me really, loud and unruly though l do not have a penchant for eating well rotten raw rabbit, l leave that to dear Gordon, such a wonderful dog all looks and no brains, the canine version of a male bimbo l guess. Now Lucy-Piglet is more like, well an utter nutter really. She has had 3 close shaves with the grim reaper and is still here to terrify scrap men and any other suspicious looking characters found lurking around the farm. The pair are well trained, they see wellies and coats plus the reaching up for dog leads as the red light to get ready to erupt out of the veranda door and leap down the drive, heading for the farm track hoping to terrify some poor unsuspecting animal to death.
This weekend sees the start of half term, here in the East Riding, so Jenny , our demon baker, is busy in the kitchen, so far we have plenty of florentine slices, crispy doodles and a mammoth bake of caramel shortcake which l reckon must be our biggest seller, we just seem to be constantly making it! Next week, as it's half term, Jenny & Harry will be making ice cream, loads of chocolate and frudge brownie flavour. Fun!
It's amazing, every year we seem to suddenly get into over drive mode about now, new customers making inquires, plans for the coming year and all that, so we should be all fighting fit after our mid winter breaks last month. Farmer and l managed to sneak a quick week sightseeing down the Nile, overloading on all thing Egyptian and ancient whilst Hazz spent 10 days in Nakiski, Alberta, skiing c/o Travis, KT & the team. So, we are now, de-jetlagged & raring to go...................
