It’s nice it’s nice to see the pigs legs after so much time in the deep sticky mud. They can clean up now ready for “bacon time” !! These bloom in’ pigs have already cost over £400 each to get this far. Now I love bacon but not that much ! Still a very rewarding experience & one we shall do again

As soon as the ground was firm enough to bring the digger in we built a hard standing for the pigs. Thanks to Colin& Andy once again. Getting the pigs out of the mud & onto dry land was fun ! I went splat face first in the thick sloppy pig poo filled slurry - nice :-{

Right. As soon as I can get a digger in we’ll make a hard standing. It’s just SO wet we can’t do anything but give them plenty of straw in their house. This photo sums up a miserable wet winter

It’s lovely now the children are old enough to actually help rather than hinder the planting of seeds for this years crops. Such events make for wonderful memories !

I wonder what the pigs think of the wettest winter on record ? It’s just miserable :-(

Our 13 foot trampoline was picked up & thrown over 50m into the neighbours garden by a mini tornado during one of the many storms during this awful wet winter

Mummy & the children getting the Christmas tree decorations sorted out. We had a lovely bushy tree this year, the best yet ! Photo taken from the garden. I love how open the lounge looks from outside whilst also being so airtight, cosy & light - still lovin’ it 5 years on :-)

The garden is settling in nicely. Copious amounts of watering courtesy of the new pond has ensured that we’ve kept 95% of everything planted in tip top condition during this hot dry summer.

Camping in the garden last weekend, lovely ! The view from the roof is great, I love coming up here occasionally.

The porkers tucking into their breakfast. It’s surprising how much they’ve grown in the month we’ve had them. The white one shoved out as usual by her bully sisters. Leader of the pack definitely Big Red in the foreground

The 45’ bouncy castle & assault course kept the children busy at the party - thanks John at Weald bouncy castles ! Freddie’s 10 second pop-up tent ironically took 10 minutes to fold back up ;0) and great to have the Carters in da house !
