22 Feb 2012

So, we went off-farming for a week.

A much needed dalliance;

a celebration of sorts.

With the team at home looking after the cows, chickens and renewables,

they graciously sent us on a journey down to the Costa Del Sol, Spain…

Where there was an endless blue sky

brimming with sun every day.

We feasted on food fresh from the sea

And shared tiny, creamy, gooey, exotic cakes for two each afternoon

And then,  early one morning…

We crossed the Strait of Gilbraltor

over to North Africa

Landing worlds away

in extraordinary Morocco

filled with sights, sounds and colours

that linger on in our senses…….


still make us smile.

We have come home to a busy farm

Spring calving has begun

And, there is a bucket of catching up to do.

Promise a farm fresh post next week, but until then…

The winner(s) of The Slugs and Snails tights are:

Bec Hem and Evin O’Keefe

Thanks to everyone who submitted a lovely comment.
