Country Kids 3rd June 2017

 Half term fun from the farm 

We began our half term with the most spectacular overnight Thunderstorm I think I’ve ever seen. It was great right up until the point I released it had taken out the WiFi in time for changeover. Thank goodness for paper back up or I’d have had no idea who was arriving or where! We were back online late afternoon and since then we have enjoyed a mostly dry and really quite warm week here on the farm. Our chickens are back free ranging with the ducks ( more about that tomorrow on the blog) we had an unexpected new born lamb and my own children have been hanging out down by the river with the older guests staying.  I hope your half term has been a happy one with a few adventures to share on the link up below.
