A Day on the Farm – The Ordinary Moments

It’s February. In England. A day on the farm isn’t usually what I’d be typing, but when it’s just a fiver for all three of us to go then how could I not?! On Wednesday, I met my friend Sam & her little girl and we visited a local farm. I had somehow managed to get lost and rocked up half an hour late and despite it being freezing, drizzly, muddy and really grey the three girls absolutely loved it.

We saw owls, sheep, reindeer, chickens, geese, ponies, donkeys, a pretty peacock, pigs and some incredibly cute baby goats, which were incredibly cheeky. I know I keep saying it, but I really want to force myself to do more each week with the girls because school is creeping closer and closer and soon I won’t be able to take them so easily for days out when it’s lovely and quiet. Not only does it get us out the house, but they adore going on days out. Granted the weather is pretty crappy sometimes you have to pull on your big girls (thermal) pants and get out there.

The girls were happily feeding the incredibly cute baby goats when the larger female decided to nab the bag of food and promptly run off to empty and eat the contents, much to their dismay (I had to try not to giggle!) There was also a lovely indoor soft play area where we could warm up as the girls ran riot. It was weird as I had taken the girls when they were about 14 months old and they were struggling to climb up, whereas this time round they were leaping off the top!

The girls had the afternoon off nursery to go and it was lovely to have them all day with me. The middle of February is almost upon us and another page down on the calendar. My girls are going to be four before I know it and I’m aghast at how the years have slipped away. I need to start making more of the afternoons we have and will add some ideas onto my next monthly bucket list to ensure I’m more focused and actually have a plan. But for now, I am all about celebrating the ordinary moments and making the most of them.

    I still remember the junior school trip we had to a farm. This, coupled with my my granddad keeping chickens and having a largish vegetable garden, makes you very appreciative of where food comes from and how nature works!

    A trip to the farm sounds like loads of fun for kids I wish I could take mine for a day trip but there’s nothing like that here in Glasgow where I live.

    This looks like such a nice day out. I like farms in winter as they’re so much quieter than usual and a fiver is an absolute bargain! x
