Elodie_Caroline Says: Our Bungalow is only a stone's-throw away from a very large woodland, so obviously there is plenty of wildlife around here. The woods can be so scenic during the Spring and Summer, but they are a bit depressing looking during the Winter if there is no mist or snow. I do love...
Elodie_Caroline Says: I make Ratatouille to my own specification. I don't like Aubergine, so I substitute it with Carrots and I use Cayenne Pepper instead of normal pepper for my recipe. It's hot and spicy...enjoy!.....There will be enough here for you to put quite a few portions into the Freezer...
Well, what can I say? Living in a little village, you might as well say that there is no shops at all. For around 9 months of 2007, we didn't even have a post office here! There is a crummy. over priced, fish and chip shop, an estate agents, a hairdressers, a small ironmongers, a small chemists, a small grocery shop, an off licence, a place that sells fireplaces, a Tack shop, and a dentists, if it's still there? These are all a mile up the road in the 'Village' itself. Oh, and we have a Kebab van up there in the evenings. And then there's Roberts shop just up the road from us, this is a tiny grocery shop, the size of a small sitting room.
I've lived here for over 11 boring years now, and yet I have only ever been in the post office around three times, but I haven't even ventured into any of the other shops yet. I would much rather go in the car to Reading, around 20 miles away from our village.

Aw, one Summer's afternoon, my hubby called me out into our back garden. On a plank of wood out there, was a sweet little Mouse. He was just sitting there and was very still, not eve trying to run away from us. "He's not well or something," I said,"He would have buggered off by now." I went indoors, got my camera and took a few photos of him, I got really near to the poor little thing too. In the end, I picked him up; he kind of scrabbled out of my hand and fell onto the floor and I felt really awful about that, he didn't even move. We put some Budgie seed down for him,and then I picked him up again and turned him over, I noticed a deep bloody cut in his stomach. It was obvious that a Kite, our local bird of prey, had gotten to him and must have dropped him out of the sky. The poor little Mouse died about half an hour later, probably from shock... It made me cry :(
