A Trip To The Farm

So time for another cross off the bucket list!

Sunday 13th April me and some of my friends and their little munchkins headed off to Manor Farm & Country Park in Hampshire where I was going to be Milking A Cow! My friend from work & fellow blogger Heather also came along and decided earlier this week that Milking A Cow was a rather random thing to do & fits in quite well with her blog (http://hpullan88.blog.com) so she was going to give it a go too!

I made the people at the farm aware that we both wanted to do it and surprisingly it wasn’t the first time that they have had someone there doing in because it was on their bucket list! We had a bit of a look round the farm first then it was the time….the farmer arrived & gave us all a bit of a talk about the cows and the milk (it was mainly for the kids – although we did all learn something!) and then it was ready steady go!

The cow that I milked is a Jersey Cow called Abigail, she is pregnant and her little calf is due in August.

Afterwards we all went our separate way for a while and had a look round the farm then some of us went on a bit of a walk round the bigger fields to see some of the Lambs, Chickens, Turkeys and Pigs!

Piggies!

After all that walking the kids wanted a bit more fun in the park and gave the adults a chance to sit down have a natter and enjoy some of the great south coast sunshine!

All in all I had a great morning at the farm & I am grateful to those that came to share this experience with me, alothough this is MY bucketlist it is a journey we are all taking together & I love that you were there to support and laugh at me today!

WOW!

Hey!

Since weigh in last Wednesday, I haven’t had the best week! I haven’t written in my diet doodle diary at all, I haven’t been to the gym and generally haven’t really stuck to the Slimming World plan! There have been some other things going on that have taken priority for me and I just haven’t found the time to concentrate on me. So at work today when I was eating some fruit pastels I decided that whatever happens on the scales tonight I will just deal with and move forward tomorrow……

Then I stepped on those scales tonight and the weigh lady said ‘well done you have lost 1/2lb’ how my jaw didn’t hit the floor I don’t know! Maybe not being so set on dieting and focusing on other things helps your body to lose weight! That was definitely a WOW moment!

A few weeks back a friend at work started telling me about a show she has been watching called The Big Bang Theory and that she thinks I would really like it. I have to admit I was really put off it when I heard that it was all about science…..but I borrowed the box set of series 1-3 and I think I watched it within a week and half! I am currently on season 5 and I LOVE IT!!! It really does make me laugh out loud, I have been looking for a new show to get into and this was the right thing for me to get into – light hearted and hilarious! I am definitely a Big Bang Enthusiast!

I am signing off now to go and paint my nails, watch some more big bang & do some pinning!

Much Love!
