Just before Christmas we found a puppy lost in the middle of nowhere – the lucky thing! After enquiries we also found the owner, Zé da Choça, one of our neighbours up the track, but he had five others and thought it was a good idea we kept it – so now we’re up to four dogs again!

Of course we had to have The Christmas Swim … well I say “we” when I should say “the brave ones” – personally I don’t go in till the water’s a tad warmer!

And then Daniela transformed our days pickings into the starter for dinner, Wood Blewit and Chanterelle Pasties …. Delicious!
