We are pretty sure we can count so, We are informed that a pig takes 115 days from conception to birth. Well WE are convinced pigs cannot count. As We were there to see gyorgy “doing the Deed , so to speak” we made the stupid assumption that 115 (Give or take) days later we would be knee deep in piglets. No .. Not yet So either we got it wrong or No one explained to the pig. Anyway She is the size of a house and fidgety as hell so I hope all will be sorted soon. It has just made for a stressful holiday period as we have been running up and back to check every few hours only to be disappointed every trip.
Back to the other stuff , As with that at least you get an end product. We have acquired some scaffold boards which we have utilised to tidy up around the entrance road. We started by making some steps up to the barn and then used some more to “Edge” the road on the opposite side it should stop the gravel rolling off down the hill at least.
Practical Christmas present.. Not very sexy BUT defo practical ..
It was really cold and dank most of the holiday period but it makes for great pictures
Eric and Ern can cope with the cold its Rain they hate still when cold they dont leave the warmth of their shelter until they are sure there is food available and apart from the offering of Rolled barley , I had cut down the remaining Brambles and Soft rush for them to chew upon
As we have a multitude of Willow around the place We decided to have a bash at a Living arch up by the entrance it was a bit of a palaver working out how to do it with different lengths of branches but its seemed to turn out ok . We shall keep you updated with its progress ( in both verse and Pictures )
fog is great WHEN YOU ARE ABOVE IT 🙂
Right till next time . And once again I hope everyone has a great 2017
