After delivering Maud and her little rabble of unruly offspring to their new home at Fallowfields Country House Hotel this morning we drove home in the clearing rain to enjoy some breakfast and then the real work of the day started.
We have a couple driving from Wales tomorrow to pick up three of our pig arks. It's nice to be able to help someone setting up for the first time in pig keeping with some very good price pig arks. As we wouldn't dream of letting things go to a new buyer in the state they were in, we have had to set to with shovels, spades, rakes and brooms to clean them all up. This would be easy if they looked like they did when they were new just over two years ago......
... but now they look more like this.
Of course by the time we had finished our late breakfast the big black clouds had rolled back over the farm and although Lovely Hubby promised me they wouldn't, they distributed their heavy loads of rain all over us as we toiled and sweated, covered from head to foot in straw, dust, webs and well I'll leave the rest to your imagination!! The farm has had heavy rain all through the night and the place is a mud bath, I'll not complain though if the weather takes a turn for the better now, it's Bank Holiday Weekend, come on whoever up there's in charge of the weather we need a bit of sunshine.....please !!
Tomorrow we set off again to deliver Martha to meet her new beau....Thriller the Tamworth boar, I hope she'll be suitably impressed.
Have a wonderful weekend whatever you're doing.
