Quick! The camera is here! You do it, Pixie, I’m too small!
It seems I have been voted spokes-piggy so, if we may have a drum roll, please . .
It gives me great pleasure . . .
. . . to announce the arrival of a brand new family member!
Freshly delivered yesterday may I introduce Lady Florence Plimsole!
A grand name for a rather grand piggy, bestowed upon her furry little head by our friend and celebrated writer, Auntie Alden.
This is the bit where we eat our lunch, Lady Flo – tuck in!
Go steady, you don’t need to eat it all! (I can see I’m going to have my paws full with this one!)
I’m sure you will agree her new title suits her most suitably – I think Fairy would approve being such a Royal piggy herself.
Did I do it ok, Pansy . . . PANSY!
It’s the little ‘uns you have to watch, Flo!
We’d better get all this grass tidied away before Pansy finds it – get munching!
If you need a reminder of Fairy’s Royal and Titled connections you can go here, here or here!

Life goes on . . . and it is time for an update.
Welcome to the new arrivals! Meet Poppy and Posy – a pair of proper pirate-pigs, into mischief and causing mayhem at every turn!
And another new guinea pig joined us recently, Big Bear, in memory of our own beautiful Bear.
She is an amazing and very beautiful chainsaw carved sculpture, created for us by the very talented Mick Burns. He also created Big Mavis and all the other ‘Bigs’ a few years ago.
She is a very BIG Bear indeed! We may need to acquire a new fridge to store the vast quantities of salad and snacks needed to sustain her!
As summer approaches, Pixie and Pansy have been enjoying a few minutes in the garden.
And the whole herd went for a ride in Fairy’s wheelbarrow. It was remarkable they all managed to face the same way for their photo – if only for 2 seconds!
