Reclaiming space and porky pig

We were awoken at 08h00 this morning by the delivery of our new fridge/freezer. Since we started work on the ground floor, the old under-counter fridge and separate freezer have been cluttering up the 'living' area so I had been looking forward to the arrival of the new f/f with anticipation. And even more so seeing as we are taking delivery of half of a Gascon pig's carcass which will need butchering and then freezing tomorrow. The old freezer is now settled in the upper barn and will soon be filled with porky products! I collected the offal this afternoon and Andy has already made a lovely big terrine of paté using the liver and heart.

Today is also our neighbour, Claudine's birthday, so we made her a scrummy chocolate and ginger cake this morning and were invited round for cake and Champagne late afternoon.... which was jolly nice!

We have had torrential rain and low temperatures today which means snow on the mountains. We will have to wait until tomorrow to see just how much! Winter is on its way.
