It was the first time I have ever picked up kids from school and a first time doing girly things with a 5 and a 9 year old.
It was a delight.
I took winnie with me to the school,so I didn't look like a child molester and after I found the right door where each of the girls were let out we all skipped down our lane to collect wild flowers
Liv ( aged 5 going on 35) told me a long story about how ugly Winnie's bottom was whilst Eve told me what a good horsewoman she was...the chatter came as thick and fast as a machine gun going off.
We fed the hens,
Watered the sheep and the girls chased the turkey.
We collected eggs.
I had a panic attack with them walking too near the main road!
And we laughed about songs in school
They Cuddled the dogs. Ran screaming from the geese and told jokes about poo.
I washed dirt from knees, rubbed dock leaves on nettle stings and showed the girls what an onion plant smelt like......
Mum Claire picked them up at tea time
And I had to take myself off to lie down on the couch in the quiet!
I had looked after them for just over an hour!
