Listening to: Seldom Seen Kid (Elbow)
Today's recipe: pig's liver pate
Weather: Dull, overcast
Next project: dig out kitchen floor, lay a damp-proof membrane and slabs on top
How: hard can that be?
I finally plucked up courage to go over to what was Eric and Ernie's paddock yesterday. It was eerily quiet.
I assessed the damage to their hut and dug out all the old bedding straw, the aim being to get the place ready for when the sows move out there in a few weeks.
You'll be pleased to know that the lads had one last jape prepared for the unsuspecting sort-of pig farmer. Under one layer of straw outside the hut was the spot where their water tub had been.
I'd forgotten that regular spillages had left the going a little more than heavy and inevitably put one size nine foot down only for - in finest cartoon style - the world to turn upside down with me ending up on my hands and knees, realising that it wasn't just water that had been spilled there. Still, it'll be a great spot to plant potatoes in a year or so.
Very funny, boys.
