FIRST DAY WITH PIG HEADS. I got up at five and after I had made some lunch and had breakfast, I set off in the dark to ride to work. It took 40 minutes as I had found out yesterday afternoon when I cycled in to see how long it would take. The trip home had taken a bit longer as I had had a puncture and after going to every garage in Warminster looking for a spare, I ended up pushing the damn thing home and pouring rain.
Anyway, when I arrived at Wylye Valley Meats, the boss, Tony, gave me a blue coat and a little white plastic hat and I was set to work picking up pig heads and putting them down on tables to be boned out. What a job!
It seemed to take forever for the day to pass but eventually it was home time and I biked home again. I arranged with a bloke from Sutton Veny to get a ride into work from now on until we can get a car.
In the evening we went into Warminster to the Rose and Crown pub for drinks as it was Alan‘s birthday.
