I've got the weekend off this week and this morning my intention was to get up, let out and feed all the various livestock, and then head back to bed with a magazine and enjoy a lie in. Well it's now 5 hours later and I am still wandering around the house from job to job no nearer to heading back up the ladder.
Neil is working in London today on a bollywood set - breakfast for him was a jalfrezi wrap at 8am. He says he can't wait for lunch now. He is a complete asian food nut, fuelled by several backbacker trips in his younger days and loves the opportunity to sample authentic dishes.
The pigs seem to have settled in well, and are becoming much more animated and playful, much to Tess's amusement
What isn't amusing me is the return of the blasted flies - There I was thinking that the cold blast we had in winter had killed off the little buggers and that perhaps filling in several of the holes in our walls and floor had made a difference to the fly population in our house, but this morning there are loads of the little swines flying around the house.
Several people have different theories on reducing the fly population. Some keep all window and shutters closed, others keep them all open so they can go in and out at will. I did try hanging a little clear bag with some centimes in which is supposed to be a failsafe remedy but didn't seem to work at all. Has anyone got any other ideas.....
For the moment the horses are taking respite under the apple tree and I can't say I blame them.
