We are back from the farm stay, tired but much happier .
3 loads of washing done and 3 more to go tomorrow.(why so much washing? Because we had to take our own bed linen and towels to the farm and you have no idea how muddy life at a farm can be especially after a rain! hahaha).
Alhamdulillah, the weather wasn’t too bad. It rained heavily on Friday morning to noon aje but cleared up around 2 o’clock and stayed sunny the whole time we were there which was really good.
We love our stay at the farm and we are already thinking of going there again next year. The Other Half siap dah merancang nak book that place again soon but for a longer stay next time. Such a peaceful and serene place far from the hustle and bustle of city life (Muahaha…macam lah Perth ni busy giler kan ).
Padahal cuma 220kms aje from our house ni but it felt like we were in a different country . Dah lah our mobile phone takde reception kat situ so memang completely cut off from anything lah.
There was only the farmers(husband and wife) and then us on that farm so we could do whatever we want, no one else to disturb us and ruining our holidays.
The farmer left us alone to do whatever we want. We had long walks (The Other Half and I went for a long walk just the 2 of us while The Little Misses were left at the farm playing with the goat), helped the farmer fed the animals, eating scrambled eggs for breakfast from freshly-laid eggs collected by Miss 7, played with the animals, went boating on the dam, spent the nights inside playing Scattergories and just lounging and reading in front of the wood-fire heater.
The Little Misses were so excited dapat berkenalan dengan banyak binatang and they especially love the goat. Siap dah berangan2 nak pelihara goat when they grow up, hehehe. Pastu Miss 7 lagi lah, siap nak ada a goat farm!
And then siap suruh I tanya Nenek and Atuk, kenapa tak nak keep a goat as a pet kat belakang rumah diaorang kat Ijok tu .
I’ll put up a few photos tonight as a teaser ye . Esok I’ll put up some more.
Our ‘home sweet home’ with the smoke coming out of the chimney. So rustic kan, hehehe.
View from the house in the morning. It was freezing in the mornings with frost on the ground!
This was our farm attire, gumboots all the way .
His job was to chop the firewood for the heater, kalau The Other Half tak chop firewood, beku lah we all kat dalam rumah tu, hahaha.
Under the willow tree with our gumboots perasan macam a real farmer and his family, hikhikhik….
Later I’ll tayang our photos with the animals pulak ye!
