My Mummy says patience is a virtue, whatever that is supposed to mean. She has been wait, wait, waiting 15 very odd years for a super dooper bespoke Piggery. Hummmph – that seems like a very long wait indeed, poor Mummy. I suppose you would need to be very patient and very virtuous to wait all that time. Funny really as I have never thought of Mummy as being patient before! For little me, Pixie and Bear, the wait hasn’t been quite so long – just a short week of total discombobulating disruption and it is done!
We’re IN! And about time too, if you ask me.
Muuuuuuumy! Come on in, it’s great!
There’s loads to see.
Hurry along Bear, we’ve been over there, it’s this way next. Keep up, Pixie!
This is our dining room area. Not exactly ample – but it will do!
Looks as if all this salad could do with a bit of a tidy up . . .
That will be a job for me then . . . nom nom . . . mmm. Jolly hard work all this munching, but very tasty!
Hay up Pixie! This looks just the ticket.
Oh yes indeed, some jolly nice sweet smelling meadow hay.
And there’s room for the three of us – just! Only the best for Fairy and her gang.
Now what else do I need to investigate?
Phewee! What a squeeze.
I’ll leave Fairy to it . . .
. . . while I selflessly help tidy up this little heap of grass someone thoughtlessly dumped here.
I really like our new Piggery Mummy.
Is there anymore grass clearing jobbies for me to do?
Yawn, stretch and another yawn for good luck. Now, did I hear someone mention GRASS?
Stand aside – there’s a Bear loose about this hoose!
Let me know when the next grass delivery arrives. I just need to test this bed thingy out for comfiness. Prod, poke, pummel – perfect!
While I am busy doing that, you can view the picture gallery. See how many of our ancestors you can spot.
Everyone’s up there. From Great Great Grandma Mildred Mittens, to the amazing Great Auntie Mavis. And don’t forget those wonderfully woolly twins, Mabel and Wilma. And look, there’s Auntie Matilda, Auntie Mary and dear Auntie Marigold and Mariella.
And look, there’s Big Wilma!
I say, listen up everyone! We LOVE our new Piggery.
Three cheers for the architect (my Mummy), the organiser (my daddy) and the clever joinery type men, Mark and Alan! But a very big thank you to all those Piggies who have empowered us all over the years with their love, characters and inspiration. The Piggery is dedicated to you all.
