Word of the Day...

Today I learnt a new word – FOUINE – while discussing chicken rearing with the neighbours! At first I thought it was a weasel, but after checking with Jean-Michel (and then google) it seems that although they come from the weasel family, they are actually cat sized weasels found across Europe - eek!

However, the story brought back a fond memory of when I was a child and was known for some considerable time as Claire Weasel because one of my siblings couldn’t pronounce Claire Louise Hall. I wasn’t terribly amused at the time but today it brought a smile to my face!
