The pig is named after my sister, but she doesn't know a little secret we had two pigs one Julie after her friend and one Wendy. We despatched Wendy and kept Julie, but didn't have the heart to tell my sis that we dispatched her so we told a little fib or indeed a porky pie and she thinks that her best friend has been for the chop.

I never just chose the names they both demanded that I call the next two animals after them, I suspect they were thinking bunnies or something on those lines.

Don't tell her will you.smile

Any takers fully trained for those mountains in Bonny Scotland and could be trained to butt the English out, Don't know why William Wallace didn't think of that, just imagine meeting a line of 1000 Goats charging down upon you.cheers

Thank you all I will tell them in the morning, as I am bee worn out. Have been rendering the walls with the traditional sand and Lime that the French used in the old day's. Today they are lazy and go for plasterboard, which looks nice but that modern clean look about it and is very prone to damp here because whilst they use plasterboard they keep the earth floors so lots of humidity coming up.

What to do with the little ones is the bit about small farming that I just don't like, they take them at the local market but I don't like the people much and the price is a mere 3€. Of course my son says's he wants to keep them, but you cannot keep everything can you. The one that is sort of cappuccini colour is female.

 

Ps forgot to ask danst have you relatives from Italy as one of the couples living near he is Half Italian and part of his family is steedman too.
