we usually let the pigs out of their pen at the weekend so they can roam (and try to trash) the field that they are in. The dog is a bit of a pain to begin with, nipping at them to try to get them to play. They don't play because they are usually too busy rootling around. As you can see Myrtle has just been having a mud bath.
Graham's trip to the dentist for root canal ended very unsatisfactorily yesterday. No matter how much anaesthetic the dentist injected she couldn't numb the nerve so he nearly went through the roof every time she started to drill. She thinks that she has killed enough of the nerve to have another go next week. His gout is still terrible so his dentist trip was followed by an emergency appointment at the doctor's (he NEVER goes to the doctors.). He saw a different doctor who put him on a completely different regime but using the same medication as the original one. Makes you wonder doesn't it?
Angus exam's yesterday were 'fine.' So, last week they were 'OK' on Monday, 'alright' on Tuesday, and 'fine' on Friday. I did ask him if he could rank these gradings in order of 'alrightness' but he didn't indulge me. Don't blame him really, I was being a bit of an arse.
