Obviously i will be gushing about him endlessly for a few weeks, so do bear with me! He is only 4 weeks old at the moment so we cant colect him until 21st of november, 32 whole days away(not that im counting!), i fell in love with him as soon as i saw him and cant wait to take the girls and Mr P to meet him.
If you could help me out with a few name suggestions id really appreciate it? I do have a few names in mind but you ladies always have fab ideas, so let me know!

After spending the afternoon with Mr P senior at the big farm(as we shall call it, just so you dont think i mean our farm) learning how to dress pheasant and partridge, he kindly gave me two brids and some pheasant breast to bring home for tea!

The girls and i have been out and about on the farm today looking at the the amazing colours of the trees, they were fascinated and are now pointing out pretty trees everywhere....its nice seeing things through their eyes, the appreciate such tiny things, like silver birch bark peeling and holly berries starting to appear....(which reminds me i must go and gather some this week to put in my enamel jug in the kitchen diner.
Crazy as it sounds i got a fab Joules sweater in a charity shop in Romsey this week, and a lovely Jager shirt to wear on shoot days...
I thought id include a couple of photos if the afore mentioned Romsey show, we have special members passes every year so we get to use the posh loos and eat and drink in a special sectioned off area!
Back to the here and now, yesterday the girls and i ventured onto the farm to take a look at the bird pens housing the shoot birds, these partridges were so pretty, but very very nervous. Ruby was a bit shocked when they all started flapping! Notice how she stands well back, i think she's also avoiding the electric fence!
I'll leave you with a couple of photos of the cheeky girls playing hide and seek and feeding the ducks in Mr p's mum's garden. Please excuse any spelling mistakes, its sooo late and i cant be arsed to check this post through! Whatever you're doing, have fun xxxx
