Just look at them they're so small and safe on our family holiday to Featherdown in Wiltshire. Loving every minute of it. Keep these memories forever my cupcakes, I hope we've made them happy ones.
After a fabulous time visiting family and the gorgeous Anna at No.9 cafe, wonderful to see you sweetie-pie, look forward to next time. Can't wait to have another one of those yummy vanilla lattes, they tasted great and do some real chatting lol Thank you for the cute card I found on our door mat when we got home. It was a nice surprise. Big hugs x
So we arrived at our home for the next 4 days very happy and excited of what lied ahead.
The inside of our tent looked just like the picture in the brochure and there was the cutest vintage tins on the kitchen top and sweet hearts on the loo and cabin bed doors. Enamel mugs, pots, pans and utensils. Wood burning stove, gorgeous wooden floors, table and chairs. And a huge double bed for Ben and I to snuggle on cold nights.
Look at the view from outside of the tent, wow! amazing. Can you see the chicken houses? I think the girls and I spent most of our mornings up there lol (more photos to follow over the week).
The skie looks very grey doesn't it and it was the worst first night, rain, gale force winds, more rain and did I mention the gale force winds lol The girls slept through it all. And the next morning we woke too bright skies and warm air. And had a yummy breakfast of bacon butties and cups of tea. This set us up for a fab ride on farmer Joe's tractor, he took us around the farm and talked about his life running it the organic way. We have a lovely photo of him and his wife Izzy with Daisy who was so taken by him and would call out "farmer Joe!" everytime we went for a talk, (photo will be on the next post).
No fashion wellies here lol I tried so many on and they all fitted but I couldn't get my jeans down inside them. Thinking I'd have to put bags over my shoes and feelings a little silly for leaving the wellie hunting a bit to late, I'd almost given up on finding some. But thanks to that fabulous man of mine taking us to Bath before we went to the farm and letting me lose in the Cath Kidston and treating me to a yummy coffee from Costa, we found our self's in a Millets shop and upstairs there was two pairs of wellies one lot for Ben and one pair for me. I love them and the sage green colour they are. And miss having to put them on every morning to walk up and let the chickens out lol. I think I might just have to put them on ever now and then and maybe find a pretty floral farmers wife looking dress to wear too lol
It's lovely to be back in the land of blog but I'm missing my chickens, wellies, fresh air, the smell of burning wood and well everything about it all really. (Even the nightly bug hunt before bed lol)
And I didn't miss the cars, noise, chav's, smokers, telly or my mobile. It's the simple life for me and the country heart is beating out loud. Roll on next years holiday when we return for more fun down on the farm.
Many hugs everyone and thanks for all the lovely comments you've all left while I've been away. Keep the things that make you happy coming, I'll choose my favourite this Friday.
Ps: more photos coming this week, we got a little snap happy lol as you do on hols.
