Family Visit Round 3
Family visitors departed this morning, it was only a short visit but an enjoyable one.
A trip to Llansteffan, it was overcast but warm
walking on the mud flats there was lots of laughs as they got stuck in the mud
Sol and his new friend Indie had a great time in the sea, it was Indie's first visit to the sea and she loved it.
We finished up with fish and chips followed by ice cream, before heading home for a movie night with pop corn.
I now have a few days to myself, then Martin will be home and Saturday we have friends arriving they are tagging on a stay at the end of the holiday in Wales, Martin will be home for the week as next week I am away for a couple of days at the International Quilt Festival at the NEC with a friend.
Then we have more friends coming for the week end.
On the home front the mushrooms are growing again, the chicks are having there first night in the chicken house with the adult chooks,
And we have our winter hay, Martin has bought hay in Bedfordshire, and has it stored at his unit he will start bringing loads back with him each visit, I wanted hay in small bales easier for me manage and it will be easier for us to store than the euro bales, Hay at times is difficult to find locally in small bales, around here the farmers tend to do haylage or silage, the Alpacas prefer hay. Speaking of which its Kara's 1st birthday tomorrow, on the day she was born last year it was blowing a gale and raining and it looks like the same again this year.
