I like to try and paint animals with character and I hope you think my piggy has character. I love pigs, Gary and I went to our local farm shop today to photograph the pigs that are normally there but they had gone - I asked the assistant where they were and she told me they were in the sausages!! They are getting new ones in soon - it's sad I know but I would much rather see pigs have the life they had, free to roam around than the intensively farmed pigs who have a very sorry life cooped up in pens where they can hardly move. And all to save money - it's so wrong as are many things in this world :-(
Anyway on a lighter note we celebrated Gary's daughter's 18th birthday with a meal in Chester last night - an all you can eat buffet and boy was I stuffed!!
I painted a Nike Blazers birthday card for her as she wears pink ones.
Today we went on our usual Friday walk, nothing too strenuous, just a walk up on to our local Moel Famau and we visited one of the hillforts in the area Moel y Gaer.

Gary also took some gorgeous photos of Holly who was looking glorious in the afternoon sun. Isn't she a stunner? Love her to bits!
For photos from our latest walks pop over to Two Pairs of Boots.
Have a wonderful weekend
