So, John-Paul the pig breeder rang yesterday and we've come to the conclusion the dates are definitely wrong. It didn't take a lot of working out.
The latest theory is that - despite appearing to be getting it on - the boar didn't do the business when previously thought. That was obviously a trial run. . . foreplay, if you like.
It seems that he was saving the lead in his (corkscrew-shaped) pencil for the big one 21 days later on the sows' next cycle, which means that Kim is due on Tuesday and Molly a week later. Both look ready, Kim's teats are swinging nicely - if that's the right word - and she's about as uncomfortable and grumpy as most pregnant women are shortly before giving birth.
However, I'll believe it when I see it.
* I was sorting out some seedlings in the porch this morning when I spotted this wren in the bay tree. No idea how he/she got in.
