In a short time we've become very fond of our neighbours. They're lovely. 

And as a special treat, one of the four legged kind had babies two days ago.

So we took cookies for our friend the farmer, and took another neighbour and trooped off down the road today to welcome them to the neighbourhood (er, however short their stay… they're looking for homes. And see their Mum? These pigs grow BIG.)
