Foxes and owl and good news!


 Hello Friends,

Last night, I cooked a chicken filet with oranges and ninth from the garden. It is a low calories dish from my recipe book.

It was easy, quick and very tasty dish with mashed potatoes.

Not the french “ potatoe puree” with lots of cream and butter.

I only used two spoons of low fat cream. 

Around three this morning I was awakened by the yelping of foxes who wanted to eat the neighbours ‘ hens, then an owl was hooting for a long time… country life!

Then the dog wanted to go out, some cats came on the terrace to see if they could eat the fish in the pond.

This morning I had a good strong coffee to wake up!


And we had a slice of  the date and banana loaf I baked for the breakfasts with an orange juice and home made yogurt.

This afternoon, I am going to the hairdresser and I think I will have a little nap there!

I have just learned this morning by my son, that a baby is expected in Dubai!

  8. Congratulations on the baby! Isn't it great to live where there is wildlife? Well, we don't want them getting the chickens, but it is thrilling to hear the cry of the fox. We often have coyotes nearby and have to make sure the chickens are shut in for the night. :)
