Settling in......

The littlest piggies on the farm are settling in nicely and have made their home very cosy, with straw piled all around the edges and little pockets for them to curl up together and sleep in. They have the polytunnel as a windbreak (and a convenient source of fresh food), and the old tumbledown wall on the other side to mooch about under. ~

I have had to re-install Mr Hawk Eyes on the edge of the chicken enclosure as the Rooks and Magpies were taking the proverbial and pinching all the chickens food. It's nice to have a farm hand that doesn't need paying or feeding!!

Talking of farm hands, son number two is coming home tomorrow to look after the farm while we zoom up the motorway to visit Lovely Mum in Law, she's been quite poorly and we're looking forward to seeing her again.

~ I'll be gone from the Blog for a couple of days, as soon as we get back from Scotland, I'll be taking Jason back to Preston and then stopping over at my diet buddys' (Mum) for a day, to compare notes and healthy eating plans, and lots more girly talk......poor Dad!! No wonder he takes refuge at the allotment!

I miss girly talk here on the farm, although most of the animals are girls, it's not quite the same!!

Back next week with more pictures of my cuties!!

  3. Lovely to see the little piggies settling in.

    I will be weighing in on Wednesday & am thinking that after three days in Barcelona I won't have done well ! I had plenty of girly talk with my daughter & it was fun.
    Joe wasaaway on camp & hubby left at home bonding with my hens. Last night he said how lonely he'd been - bless !
    I've been tickling Pepper - do you mind if I borrow her to keep an eye on my virtual fish ?

    Have a great break xx
