What a fun filled weekend was had at the farm, it was my eldest little farmer Tegan’s 12th birthday (shocking I know, I’m old enough to have a tween). So I told her she can have a big birthday bash this year, with all her friends as she’s not having anymore until she’s 18 at least.
So on with the thinking caps and we thought an Emoji party was a perfect theme as who doesn’t love an Emoji?
Ok so it’s the last day of July , which means only one month left before school starts again and oh my god July flew so I can only imagine August will go in a blink. I thought I would compile a little list of activities for you and your family to try in this last month of summer holidays.
Remember at the start of the summer I had the kids write their bucket lists? Well we have been well and truly been ticking that list of one by one. It’s super fun and the wanes are super good as the bribing is fantastic. We have ticked off camping, swimming, going on the ferry, beach days, long nights, shopping trips etc.
I also added my own little things to do and see this summer and one of these to do lists was visit Oakfield park in Raphoe. So on the hottest day of the year instead of heading to the beach (I HATE SAND) I packed a picnic, the kids and off we went.
The kid’s are off for summer this weekend which means two thing’s
A. Long lazy morning’s
B. Bored children (stressed out mum)
I decided this year I would have the kids write down a list of things they would absolutely love to do this summer. A bucket list!
Ok so I somehow found myself following Child’s farm on Facebook for a while (must have been the name attracted me) and I have been reading and seeing all the reviews and pictures that costumers were sending in and the company was posting.
Now I mean 100% positive reviews, so obviously I could not wait to try it out myself, not actually thinking I’d need a reason.
To get to their new home in Katie’s cottage!
Say hi to our new pet’s/animals/food supply.

It was our wedding anniversary yesterday, we celebrated our second year as Mr & Mrs, although we’ve been a couple a lot longer, time does fly. Today as I was driving the kids to school, I started thinking how I married Gavin two years ago as just Gavin, since moving to the farm I found myself married to a farmer. Sounds silly as he’s always been a farmer but we have never lived on a farm, so I thought I’d list out what it’s really, really like being married to a farmer so far that I know. I have a wee list of ten real life situations, give me another ten years and I’m sure that list will grow. Continue reading
