Week 30 #Project365 – 2014

This is a dual post for #365 and #Countrykids

We didn’t do much at the start of the week.  Just pottering about in the garden and the house.

Monday – Started on a summer selection from Hotel Chocolate – review to be done next few days. – So far very nice!

Tuesday – #Countrykids We had Ashley for the day and took him to Greenmeadow Community Farm.  We used to take our boys there when they were younger. We had a lovely few hours  there. As we went in there were bags of food for the animals so we bought some for the chickens, rabbits and goats.
Our first stop was the Cwtch Corner where Ashley got to cuddle a small chicken, he didn’t like it very much! We went on to feed some chickens and rabbits which he liked better as the animals were enclosed.
Next up was watching a cow being milked, followed by a short tractor ride. When we got off the tractor we walked through the main barn to look at the cows, pigs and goats. Ashley loved looking at them but didn’t like having food put in his open hand to feed them.. although he doesn’t say much he knew how to say ‘ they bite me’!
We then went down to the picnic area to have our lunch, making sure we all thoroughly washed our hands first!.  After lunch we walked around the bottom pens where there were pigs and sheep. Then back up to see the Dragon, the water gathers in it’s mouth and tips open to splash you a little. (this used to be an open area where kids could get wet but the H&S police have arrived now!!)

Ashley was a pleasure to take, he’s so calm now and prepared to still still while things are going on.

Wednesday – Orange Wednesday – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. We hadn’t planned on watching it but the previous film – Rise of the Planet of the Apes had been on TV earlier in the week and we watched that thinking if it was good we’d go to see Dawn.  Must admit it was really good and Andy Serkis is phenomenal as Caesar.

Thursday – Pottering about the house – Hubby’s idea of watering the garden – sitting on his sunbed and aiming the water – he makes me laugh!!

Friday – Hooray the new window panel arrived. For those that don’t know – they made a unit that bore no resemblance to the original so they took the old one away and used the glazing bars inside it to make a new unit.  Only took 2 weeks!!

Saturday – Nothing going on – sitting here doing this post and baking in the heat!

    you tease with those chocolates at this time of the morning too! i tried to stay up to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes last weekend but failed so i must try to see it all next tiume as what i saw was good, so i can imagine that the follow up was good too especially at the cinema.
    it must be lovely to take Ashley to the places you used to take your own children too xx

  6. Erica Price says:

    We had some of those chocolates too – all gone now (funny that). Must write mine up too. What a shame the children can’t go in the water with the dragon.

  7. Jaime Oliver says:

    you have been super busy again this week! .. gad they finally sorted the window out lovely x

  8. I do like the look of those chocolates and the last photo of Ashley is very cute! What a shame they have fenced off the water dragon – in this heat I’m sure the children would appreciate some lovely water play. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
