I read another depressing article in the Daily Mail Online about how women ‘can’t have it all’ when it comes to career and motherhood. I find this kind of article the worst, probably worse than seeing the streams of airbrushed models strewn across the pages of glossy magazines, beacaue I know that is unrealistic…I am old enough and wise enough to know what ‘real’ women’s bodies look like, but there is nothing more crushing, or more negative to portray, than telling women they simply can’t ‘have it all’.
The nights are drawing in, the days getting cooler, the seasons are changing and it's time for the last farm event of the year - Apple & Pumpkin Day!
Come along with your family for a delightful autumnal event:
Carve pumpkins grown on the farm in preparation for Halloween.
Help us bring in the apples and press them into delicious sweet juice.
Clamber on the straw bale den.
Explore the farm trails on foot or by tractor trailer.
Weddings can be expensive. Only recently I saw a blog from a bride-to-be in distress who'd been up all night decorating invitations by hand in an attempt to save money. Her mission, to stick to a wedding budget of under £5,000.
