John`s open day postponed and a lovely tattoo !

After checking the Met Office Weather forecast today for this weekend John has decided he has no other option but to postpone his open day-the forecast is for rain all day with blustery winds-not good for an outdoor event ! It is such a shame-he had a lovely write up in the local paper [which came out today ] giving him some great free publicity [thank you to Rhian for that by the way ]
But the field is rather exposed to the elements and he didn`t want to lose [or damage ] any of the borrowed gazebo`s-also he has an army of villagers making over 50 cakes-not fair to them if there is a poor turn out due to bad weather -Still , it has only been put back a week-to the 24 th !
Thank you to everyone who has entered into the spirit of things and made a donation to save little piggy`s bacon here! We have been very touched and delighted with the response we have had so far and are having a great time reading all of the suggested names as they come in - You have given us a few laughs along the way too-I have a few favourites -but I`am not telling ! Have you got a favourite [scroll down to read them all ] ?
Finally , thank you to Sam McDonald for sending in this photograph -I thought it was lovely, so I just had to share it. Sam lost her brother to MND and she writes this tattoo represents my 2 brothers and my sister in law, there is a dragonfly , a forget me not , Ivy for everlasting life and 3 stars. What a lovely way to remember someone- thank you for supporting our awareness campaign Sam -we really appreciate it x

I'm hoping for a good day too! Wouldn't want soggy cakes and skirts flying!

That tattoo is beautiful.

Don't count me out for the 24th yet, I'm working on it! I REALLY wished I'd have gotten one of your bands for my other half. He has been filmed for a Police series, and on one episode, all you could see of him - for ages - was his "help for heroes" band. xxxxx

So sorry about the bad weather this weekend, and I hope you have nothing but sunshine next time. What a very special tattoo.

p.s. I should have also mentioned I adore piggy. That's beautiful picture and he is so photogenic. I love him and all his kin and cousins over here.
