Ok, so number 5, visit a fortune teller. This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time and it started when I was a teen and saw a fortune teller stall on Paignton Pier.
My first and subsequently every trip to Brighton I always seem drawn to tarot card readers or fortune tellers but something has always held me back. I wouldn’t say that I am a really spiritual person, but I have had a reading with a medium and it was something that I would do again. The thing that concerns me about seeing a fortune teller isn’t that they would tell me something bad, but they would tell me things that I would then guide my life around. For example, if they told me they saw France in my future (wow how spooky would it be if that happened!) and then I think I would subconsciously make choices to make that happen!
It feels only right that I make Brighton the place to see a fortune teller! I love its quirky atmosphere and I never feel out of place or judged when I am there, it is home to all different people. One of my favourite places to go in Brighton is the lanes, I love the quirky shops and the fun feel that the pier has!
On the pier, there is what I can only describe as a gypsy wagon, where one of my Matt’s family members had a reading when we were down there for my birthday last year and said it was one of the best she has ever had!
So my plan is when the weather warms and the sun (as my nan would have said) has got his hat on (hip hip hip hooray!) I would like to get a group of people on the train and head down to sunny Brighton, do some shopping in the vintage shops in the lanes, play some arcade games on the pier, have fish and chips on the beach or maybe grab some cake at a tearoom! Then those that wish to can get a reading with me!
So who’s in???
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.

Getting Stuck In!
I Was A Natural!
Even Mumma Gave It A Go!
One of my friends 2 little ones even had a go!
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!
The Biggest Cock I Have Ever Seen hee hee hee!
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!
