So it's been a pretty busy past two weeks with two trips to London with the little man, lots of adventures outside including a jaunt to Castle Coch, flying paper planes outside and playing ball games but unfortunately nearly all of these adventures have been lost due to my phone being stolen and a fault memory stick - a big boohoo but no worries we still have the memories in our mind to keep and with the sun finally showing it's face on friday we headed down to what I would term our "comfort" place and somewhere we have mentioned in Country Kids a few times - St Fagans. I think everyone has a place that is simple, comfortable and stress free and to us it's this, I think it's a combination of farm animals, beautiful ponds, vegetable gardens, forest areas, hidden paths and birdsong that make it such a hit.
It felt like this weekend was finally the start of spring and with it being the wettest winter on record it's so refreshing to feel the warmth of the sun on the wind and too see new lambs play in the fields. It's such an exciting time of the year, so much change, so many new and beautiful things coming into the world, with buds starting to show and flowers soon to bloom it's like those who have been hibernating are finally starting to wake up, long live warm days I say, we all need it.

Even though we visit this place regularly we are always discovering something new, especially since they are changing a few things around, with new sections being created. This week we discovered a new bird hide down a little hidden path. We could hear so many different birds in the trees and spotted some Blue Tits and Blackbirds, such a simple pleasure and so relaxing.

Even if summer turns out to be as wet as winter, the one thing I am looking forward to is it being a somewhat warmer experience, so we can jump in puddles without freezing.
