It was Ben's fifth birthday last Friday. He is now the proud owner of a new bike (with the all important gears) and on Sunday we decided to try it out. Tom, Ben Sally & I (and the dogs) went to, what was once, the Vire/Mortain railway line, now a walking/cycling track. It was a great place to cycle with the boys as there are no vehicles and the dogs ran beside us (most of the time). Tom, me and the dogs did 10kms (5kms each way), whilst Ben and Sally covered 6kms. Although Sally said he must have done another few kilometres going round the car park!
This week I'm planning to dig out a herb bed and plant that up. Then I must get on and do some more fencing as the sheep will have soon munched down the existing area. Well that will save me some mowing. Also, I have to keep up the other mowing, trim existing hedges and finish weeding the newly planted ones. Another quiet week at La Causserie then!
