Guests for our Guests

Our esteemed Guests –

that is, Thistle, Tango, Babe, Pudding & Brian – had a lovely surprise today; as their faithful friend Kay accompanied by mum Joan, came to the Ffarm to visit them.  After a tour of the new Dairy Complex Kay & Joan joined the ladies on Parc Dyffryn, where Kay was delighted to be reunited with her caprine friends – whom, she said now all look very grown up: afer all Babe & Pudding are now mums themselves & Thistle & Tango, veritable matriarchs being grandmothers at the ripe old age of four years old!  Kay & Joan then met their lovely little kids – Bryana, Bedelia, Blaise & Balan – before we briefly visited Brian, who was contentedly munching hay with his pals Merson, Woody, Ginny & Zuschie. 

After saying our farewells Tony & I visited our intrepid friend Iwan, following a ‘phone call advising that the second ‘Non-Op Reefer’ (stainless steel-lined 20ft container) we’ve purchased, has arrived.  Currently residing in the eerie quiet of Plasderi’s long-deserted quarry, we were pleased to find the container is in excellent condition although the freezer unit no longer works. 

Back on the Ffarm I undertook the evening chores whilst Tony luxuriated in a well-deserved bath & cooked us a simple supper: herb-enriched baked potatoes & fresh peas from the garden, served with select slices of gammon I’d gently cooked in the Rayburn, overnight.  And even though our work didn’t end until long after twilight – around 9pm – it proved a rare treat to relax in each others’ company for a few snatched evening hours, at least.
