Give a man a pink job

Well spotted, after many hours of discussions and a lot of lost sleep we have put our house up for sale, I am both sad and excited by the prospect. So anyone interested in a lovely five bedroomed four bathroomed barn conversion with some land in a fabulous location get in touch!!

We currently rent the bulk of our land and we have decided that in order to progress our business in the way we want, and need, we really do need to move and find more land - not an easy task without a large lottery win.
After a busy morning with a photographer from the local paper we decided to give Loki a birthday treat, he is 3 today and we were hoping that he would be interested in mating either Mary or Kate.
Mary made it clear in no uncertain terms that she was not ready to be remated yet. In the past she has wanted a six week break so this didn't come as a surprise, Lucia is only three weeks old. Kate on the other hand was flirting away tail up cluck at Loki who was only interested in eating the girls grass!
Hopefully he will get the hang of things when he watches the other boys on the job, however he watched last year and it didn't seem to help, so time will tell.
I treated myself to a couple of hours off this afternoon and took my niece swimming with Sarah, my sister in law. We had a lovely time, but as I went out I asked Paul to peg the washing out. This is what I returned to.............

Nice one Paul, I couldn't have screwed that job up better myself. You'll never be asked again ;o))

Good luck with the move, very exciting news for you.

What's wrong with that?
Looks like a good job. Nice work Paul. Women are sooooo fussy.

Good luck with your move! How exciting to find the perfect spot for your farm. We've dreamed of doing just that. Just not practical in our area to sell right now. Someday!

Good Luck with the move! Very exciting!
Carl used to do that with the washing and I know it was because he thought I would not ask again!

I take it the washing line is not included in the sale? Good luck with selling and hunting.
