Om Bull on the Beach
"Pep and the Scotsman are standing in the kitchen - my kitchen - creating mayhem. For the last few months, these two overgrown schoolboys have been gathering ruby grapes from the vines hanging in heavy clusters from the pergola just outside our kitchen door. Now the Scotsman is sifting through piles of grapes which are strewn all over the kitchen table while Pep stomps up and down inside an aluminium container."Having settled in a Mallorcan mountain idyll, Anna Nicholas, her husband the Scotsman and their son Ollie want to become as self-sufficient as possible. Anna teams up with organic farmers and smallholders to learn how to tend sheep, make cheese and honey and grind flour while the Scotsman creates havoc with his friend Pep in an attempt at winemaking, and tries to fathom what's troubling the wriggly inhabitants of his beloved wormery. In this latest adventure Anna links up with a unique Angus cattle farm on the island and is persuaded by her former PR client Greedy George to create a media storm for his new Spanish leather store, involving an elderly bullfighter and a gigantic bull on a Barcelona beach.
