Chasing Cows - 20 Sep 2010
  It is not just me that lives a self reliant lifestyle in my village. In fact compared with some of my neighbours I really am only playing at it. Or at least they find it very amusing when my attempts at food production go awry.

As of yet I don't have a cow, although I do intend to get one it is not high on the list of priorties. Every other household however in my village does. Every morning after milking they sent on there way out of the village to fend for themselves. Again each evening they saunter back to there owners house to be milked and get there head down for the night. Or at least most of them do.

Unwelcome guest!

Unfortunately the cow belonging to the village mayor(Kmet), has decided that it does not want to return to his own house but would rather come and visit me. Now I don't mind cows, I really do like cheese, but this cow is not keen on giving me its milk, and after breaking through my garden fence this week destroyed my cabbages and finished off my peppers before demolishing my second lot of french beans!

Not pleased does not cover it! I was seen chasing his cow through the village and lucky enough no one here speaks English as I was using some quite sharp words!

The fence has been fixed, this however has not put off my unwanted guest and for the last three days at about half past six in evening I am now seen escorting the kmet's cow back to his rightful owner. All this without even a pint of milk!
