We escaped the snow up country; in fact I think we fared better than most with some beautiful April sunshine and glorious evenings. OK there have been a few hailstorms in between and it has been chilly at times, but it has also been properly warm in the sun. I think the farm agrees, we have had two sets of twin lambs born this week, our little pet goat came off the heat lamp and the farm is finally greening up for summer.
Photo highlights from the week:
I’m starting off with Clio on the evening train ride just to prove we did have some truly beautiful warm days.
We even took advantage of the last of the April sunshine for some Maypole dancing in Activity Hour and made maypoles and bunting for a fairy party. More of this to follow on next week’s #CountryKids, but if you crept back to the fairy Gardens at dusk you would have seen the gnomes joining the dancing.
The week was totally blown away for me on Friday discovering I was shortlisted in the BIBs for Social Media and Readers Choice. Thank you if you voted for me, it really means the world. Of course that means the next round is up. There are some great blogs in all the categories, do check them out and please vote for your favourites. If you are one of them good luck!
Happy Bank Holiday Weekend, I hope the April sunshine stays for May
