I was taking a break from the farmy things and was sat on the couch doing Social Media things when I heard a commotion outside.
I looked up and found Poppy, my beautiful hereford piggie looking back at me through the screen door, of the porch. TonTon was right behind her muttering to himself. “I told her – I told her. There is a rule about pigs on the porch. No Pigs On The Porch – the rule says. Don’t think I didn’t tell her miss c but will she listen? O!h No!. Pigs will be Pigs, she said to me and ran up the steps. Ran! UP! The! Steps!
“Then back down the steps and back up again in case she missed something. This pig is trouble, miss c. I knew it from the moment I saw her. There she goes again. Up and down. Up and down. You had better bring Power of the Bucket out here and lead her back to her paddock. Bloody pig.” Mutter. Mutter .
“Just bite her on the arse”, says BooBoo. “Just a little nip to move her along. I’ll do it if you like. I am always in trouble anyway.”
“We can’t. “says Ton. “It is mean to bite pigs bottoms. They are just so .. I don’t know – obvious.. it doesn’t seem fair somehow”
Poppy was escorted by her entourage back to her paddock where she lay down to have a wee sleep with her friends. Can you see Manouchki the kitten?
How about now.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Your friend on the farmy
ps The proof for Letters for my Little Sister is due to arrive today. If it does not arrive my head may just blow right off my shoulders. I have to say I am beside myself with terror. Even though my co-pilot Melissa and I combed that manuscript for errors, I just know something will have got past and will show up in the printing. Too late now for those though. The type has been set – the Proof copy is for colours and formatting. Let’s hope it is all right and I can say GO.
There is a facebook page now just for this book, just for this period.
Pop over for updates if you feel so inclined!
