Lewis of London Ice-Cream Farm

Sunshine, splashing and London’s Ice Cream Farm

  I feel like we’ve well and truly started summer over the last few days! Picnics, building sandcastles, BBQs, paddling pool, suncream, sunhats and sandals on! Which all feels a bit strange given we haven’t even had Easter yet. Yesterday, we popped to the…

Lambing At Forty Hall Farm

Lambing Weekend At Forty Hall Farm

  I can’t think of a better way of spending a gorgeously, sunny March Sunday than getting out in the sunshine and seeing signs of spring in abundance. We spent yesterday lunchtime (Mother’s Day, happy belated Mother’s Day by the way!) at Forty Hall…

Sunday at Hackney City Farm

For a city so humungous and busy as London, it’s really quite cool that there are so many pockets of greenery and wildlife. From the large Royal Parks such as Greenwich Park to the garden squares to the nature reserve at Camley Street and the…

Seren and I nipped round the M25 for a birthday party at Godstone Farm a couple of weeks ago. Now that Imogen is older, I’m trying to do more things with Seren just the two of us. And as Seren is now potty trained, I think…

Autumn Sensory Tub

After completing our salt dough leaves and handprint autumn trees, I put together a sensory tub for Seren to play with. This was filled with brown rice and orange lentils and we started out by putting in a little wooden farm set, our salt…

The Ghost of Halloween at Lee Valley Park Farms

We headed up to Lee Valley Park Farms again last Sunday, this time with daddy in tow too. After our lovely visit in August, I snapped up discounted entry tickets via Littlebird thinking it would be good to go one weekend. But we’ve been very…

Down on the farm with HUGGIES Pull-Ups

I’ve recently written about our potty training journey and how Pull-Ups formed a key part of our success. We still use HUGGIES Disney Princess Night-Time Pull-Ups for bedtimes (“they aren’t nappies mummy, they are special big girl’s night time princess pants!”) and will do for…

An afternoon at Lee Valley Park Farms

We had planned a get together with some friends for an afternoon in early August. One friend was taking the afternoon off work, so we felt we should do something “worthy” of that and another friend has recently started to drive again, so we…

Willows Farm Village, Hertfordshire

We finally made it to Willows Farm a couple of weeks ago! It’s only a 20 minute drive from here and pretty much everyone I know locally with children has been. The entrance fee is a bit on the expensive side compared to other local farms…
