This morning as planned we took the pigs to the abattoir in Dunblane. Everything went extremely smoothly, thanks to some help with loading up from our friend Brian, and the benefit of experience having done this once already last year.

Rosemary shed a few tears, but to me they've been dead since the day they arrived - we looked after them and kept them safe but their fate was sealed back in March. It is kind of quiet around the place now without them, but there'll be more next year no doubt.

We should get the biggest pig back from the butcher on Saturday, so I'll be looking out some curing recipes over the next few days.

PS: Sorry for the lack of updates, we've both been laid low with the cold and Rosemary's done her back in!

Sorry to hear you've both been unwell, hope you get better soon :-) Debbie's had cold for weeks now, I've somehow managed to evade it, but now I've written this I'll be sneezing before the day's out lol.
