Alhamdulillah I had a lovely Sunday morning spent at Barleylands Farm market in Essex. We go there a couple of Sundays's a year and it is a great chance to give your lungs a treat and get in touch with nature. Oh, and to shop for next to nothing. I bought myself lots of plants, flowers and garden accessories and tomato plants for my mum.
The kids have had a good run around and the fresh air seems to make them extra hungry and extra sleepy. Plus they managed to fill our car up with enough toys to last them all year (Little Man is putting his new keyboard to good use by giving me a headache).
I've got toys too; some craft goodies and some boxes to put them in. I also found some good reads. I'm particularly pleased with the Gerald Durrell book which has all of his books in (I read his My Family and Other Animals as a teen and just loved it). Little Lady got some Charlie and Lola books which I have been keeping an eye out for ages as kids just love them.
I would reccommend anyone to visit, Dunton boot market is also very near by and absolutely enormous, although you have to get there for about 7am to get the real bargains (I think I spent about £20).
Now that we've had dinner the perefct thing to do would be to have a nap and then have ago at a bracelet I have an idea for. But I'm going to get the kids to have a lie down and get into the kitchen as we have guests for dinner alhamdulillah.
