Happy Bank Holiday Weekend
After a shocking week in the country with the horror of the bomb at Manchester Arena , I am ready for a little fresh air and family time this weekend. Manchester seems to have touched everyone’s life in someway, even here in Cornwall I can’t help but reflect on the fact that two of my own boys were up at a concert in the arena just a few weeks ago. A sunny weekend and family time is just what we need.
On the farm the chickens are back out of their winter chicken house in the field with the ducks and our ducklings are thriving. It’s lovely to see the guests enjoying feeding them all and searching the field for the eggs. Whatever your plans this weekend, I hope you’ll pop by and share them on the link up below.

I’ve never been to the Isle of Wight but Mummy Travels makes it look very appealing
Forest Schools sounds so like my Activity Hour here I can’t help but love what they do. The Helpful Hiker went along to a taster session to see what it is all about.
