This weekend we have been putting things in the cabin and having our first sleepover there.
Books which I want to mull over while there are no other pressures to do anything else.
Books for gazing at clouds, naming wild flowers and fungi, a recipe book, musings and maps. Both bloke and I always like to dream about self-sufficiency too.
We had jobs to do.
Mixing wildflower seed with grass seed to sprinkle over the mound that was left after we had made the base for the cabin.
There was the dreary but essential job of waterproofing the building... so much painting.
The nicer job of putting all the things in that we have made, begged, been gifted or have a special meaning to us.
The girls were just so smitten with having bunk beds.
Picking flowers, drawing and colouring in.
The obligatory marshmallows.
A strange nights sleep, with sheep roaming around outside, owls hooting, dogs barking in the distance - you wouldn't think there would be so many sounds to be heard.
Some pond dipping on Monday, catching Mayfly nymphs, tadpoles and a waterboatman.
A walk in the woods. So many bluebells we could smell them.
They are pretty fond of a stick, my girlies. What more do you need? Thanks for stopping by and looking at our adventure.
Hope you had a relaxing time this weekend. Jo x
