Once upon a time Mummy and Daddy Pig lived very happily in their little house on the hill.
That was until the house next door was sold to Mr & Mrs Rat, who had no regard for their neighbours whatsoever.
The house and garden were in a dreadful state , in fact it was a complete and utter disgrace.
For over four years Mummy and Daddy Pig put up with the constant noise and disruption from the building work next door although they did become very cross at times. ( Well, you would, wouldn’t you?)
Then, one lovely Spring day when the sun was shining Daddy Pig spent all morning cleaning the windows and paintwork until it shone. Mummy Pig was delighted and she opened all the windows to let in the fresh air which was lovely after the cold damp winter.
After lunch, whilst Daddy Pig rested, Mummy Pig hung out the washing.’So nice to let it dry in the fresh air,’ she thought.
After dinner Mummy Pig said – “ Can you smell burning?” “ Umm, I can smell something” said Daddy Pig.
Mummy went into the kitchen, the smell was worse but nothing was burning. She opened the back door to be met by a big cloud of smoke!
The inconsiderate neighbours had lit a bonfire. A VERY smoky bonfire and it was blowing all over the washing and in the house.
TO BE CONTINUED……………..
Mummy Piggy was very, very cross. so cross that she flipped. She shouted over the fence -
PUT THAT BONFIRE OUT NOW. HOW DARE YOU YOU IGNORANT MAN!
"You can’t stop me having a bonfire and in any case the neighbour across the road has them." cried the little rat.
Mummy pig, realising that this stupid animal would never do the right thing as he had no consideration for others, went and got the garden hose and doused the bonfire!
Game set and match to Mummy pig.
