Just up from HQ, on a slate-topped wall in front of a stone cottage, sits a concrete pig. Ever since Coyote and I have lived in the Dulas valley, we've been rather amused by her frequent transformations.
The other night, we thought we'd bring her a little festive spirit...so we crept up the road in the dead of night, armed with a silver tinsel garland. Like two completely inept ninjas, we slipped it around her neck and hastily retreated into the darkness.
The following day, we discovered that the owners had not only left the tinsel in place...but they'd also added a Santa hat to complete the look! This made us smile - it was a little bit of local teamwork ☺
Back at The Ranch today - where there are workmen currently cutting holes in the floor - I decided to search for this pig online. Surely somebody else had noticed this charming little character?
They certainly had...
Introducing our local celebrity: Y Mochyn!

We'll be snapping Y Mochyn in her current festive garb at the weekend. In the meantime, we wish you all a lovely week ☺ xx
