FARM HOLIDAY....

As I was looking through Niamh's birthday photos I was reminded of where we were this time two years ago....Quite by accident while lurking about the web I found a site called Featherdown Farms....so after careful consultation with Allan (I told him that's where we were going!!!) I booked us in for the Monday to Friday of Niamh's birthday week to Manor Farm in Hampshire which had the added bonus of being only about 20 miles from Allan's sister Carol-Ann...This is her on her 3rd birthday!!! Ellie making herself comfortable in her cupboard bed....honestly you have to go to one of these farm experiences to believe it - we had such a lot of fun....

This is snowy....there was lots of animals for the kids to get to know including pigs, chickens and these gorgeous wee lambs...
I think for the kids the most exciting thing was getting up in the morning and going to collect the fresh eggs from the chickens and this is where our love of them (chickens that is!!!) began... I even did a LO using these photos....

This is the accommodation for the week - the most spectacular tent you could hope for - 2 bedrooms, a bed in a cupboard, running (cold) water and a flushing toilet!!!...The wood burning stove was brilliant and we had eggs and bacon cooked on this every morning delicious and the whole place lit with gas lamps....all very Enid Blyton...lol

Definitely an experience the kids have never forgotten and I think a repeat visit will be in order maybe next year...0f to Disneyland Paris in just over a week this year....
