I know, I know, it is still November but last weekend we dusted off our Christmas jumpers and headed back to Essex for the Marsh Farm Father Christmas Experience. This is my most favourite Christmas event of the year and you have absolutely no idea the amount of excitement I felt that morning. It felt like Christmas had come. The air …

IOW 2017 Day 3 – Model Village, Tapnell Farm & The Cow Co.

I woke up earlier than the day before. I decided to have a shower and whilst I was half way through shaving my legs, the fire alarm went off. This woke Hubby is a shock and he leaped out of bed to press the button. He ended up pressing it about ten times but it kept coming back on. So …

It’s Strawberry Picking Season Again

The first time I went strawberry picking was last year and once we’d been, we were there nearly every week during strawberry season. We went to Open Farm Sunday and I’ve sort of got a bug for the whole country living, farming thing. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been binge watching Heartland which is all about the country way …

We’ve not been to Godstone Farm before, …

Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of our body? Did you know that the hair on our head is there to act as a coolant and insulator but also to protect us from the sun’s UV rays? This week our skin has been enjoying lapping up some Vitamin D from the sun that has been shining …

Strawberry Picking As A Family

Our weekdays are so busy with one of the girls doing various activities or blog events, friends and playgroups. It’s hard to keep track of things and so when it comes to the weekend my head is telling me to spend it in my pyjamas doing absolutely nothing. But actually our weekends are precious because apart from the couple of …

Open Farm Sunday 2016

I’ve started to get a bit stuck for ideas when it comes to the weekends when we just have P3. I feel like we’ve exhausted the park and soft play is always packed at weekends. She’s not quite old enough for big trips to the local castles either. I posted on social media that we were struggling for an idea …

The journey really did feel like the longest time. The girls …

Our Weekend At Gladwins Farm

We started our journey to Gladwins Farm after picking P1 up from school. It was meant to take just under an hour and a half but the traffic was awful and it ended up taking nearly three. As we arrived, the sun starting to set, the stress from the journey seemed to just disappear. The view was so peaceful and …

30/31: My Earliest Memories

I have quite a few memories from my childhood. I can’t quite pick one as being earlier than the other. 1) We lived adjoined to a veterinary surgery, the one where my mum worked, and I have so many memories of being there. I remember playing between the big bags of dog food stacked on shelves. I remember watching kittens …
