Well hello!

I hope you had a smashing weekend. 

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?

:: 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.

We could move in, surely? Reckon they'd notice?

Wow, they fly your flag to show you’re in residence? What a hoot. Your parents blow me away, Fi. We may be back for a visit in December- aching for grandparents!
Hope you’re around.

Hey Fi
I’m with you. Time to move back to the farm. Whats not to love. Sorry Gay and Malcolm but its the most awesome place to be. Its the insertion of that amazing expresso machine that was the clincher.

As my fella would say: that’s not a coffee machine, it’s a space station! Excuse the Star Wars reference but really, how shiny is that? And how many buttons/levers/dials? Having said that, it’s getting a bit rainy here, and the days are slowly shortening. Maybe we’ll come back too! What do you reckon. Rock paper scissors for the loft?
