We did. First overnight stay away with new baby: at Mum and Dad's so not really pushing the boat out I s'pose. Totally, totally lovely.
What's not to adore about the farm?
:: Mum and Dad's tradition of putting out your particular family flag when you come? This is ours. My sisters and brother have theirs too. Christmas time was flag central. I love our flag.
:: The chance to hug trees that I've hugged since I was knee-high?
:: Hanging out in beloved violet patches that have been growing on the front driveway for about 150 years?
:: Enjoying those two smallies of mine as they play, utterly fascinated, with Mum's music box collection?
:: Enjoying the garden?
:: Playing hide and seek with Gran?
:: And if all that wasn't enough to love, Dad grows coffee. Great coffee. Hand harvested, processed and roasted on the farm. And now has an awesome new espresso machine.
