My name is Paula. I'm a full-time mum and homemaker. I live in Staffordshire with my wonderful husband Mark and our four delightful children Tom (12 years), Lily (11 years), Emma (8 years) and little Alexander (3 years). A cosy home, good books to read, access to the countryside, tea and flowers. A little time for some needlework, a little baking, time to play my piano and my family nearby...that's me happy!
Life is good!
On Sunday we took the Podlings to Amerton Farm with Mark's parents and my mum. It is a great place to take the family and isn't at all expensive (unusual for family attractions these days). The Podlings had a wonderful time in the play barn and completely wore themselves out on the bouncy castle. We enjoyed seeing the animals and Lily was rather excited to discover that one of the goats shared her name! Strangely, I think she was rather more taken with the animatronic cow in the play barn than she was with the real thing! We all had a wonderful afternoon. It was a lovely way to spend Father's Day. .
I can't believe how adventurous Tom is getting...he used to be so cautious! Both Tom and Lily loved this enormous slide and the very kind lady who was running it let them have a few extra turns each. .
Tom and Lily enjoy a ride on the merry-go-round. .
Mark has as much fun as the Podlings at these places! .
