One cupboard is already full, we are now using a cupboard in the utility room. I made a batch of mincemeat too as we enjoy mince pies all year round. Still need to top up the oils and make some jam but tomorrow is another day.
Whilst away we spent a lovely day exploring Ampthill park which has three Trails to walk a short trail, heritage trail and a long trail. It is on the site of one of King Henry VIII's favourite castles sadly it is buried underneath the ground but you can still enjoy the views from the top of the ridge.
We also had a wonderful day out to Herring Green Activity Farm and Bird of Prey Centre. Bertie and Honey love a farm and both like their Grandad love a tractor. It is certainly something we will need to start looking around for. They are both so good with animals and never tire of looking and petting them.
The highlight of the day was a falcon display which we all enjoyed. I had mixed feelings about some of these magnificent birds held captive but there as no doubt about it they were well looked after.
Bertie read all the signs to Honey and told her what each of the birds were and where they had come from. The highlight of his day was to actually put the glove on and hold one. The staff are wonderful, so kind and patient with the children answering all their questions.
Another job Bertie is considering for when he is a big boy.
We also took time for ourselves and enjoyed a stroll around one of the Antique Centres. Sadly the park was been refurbished but the children still enjoyed the old water mill and we had lunch out for a treat there.
As always I do thank you for your visit and for your comments.
See you soon.
