Our CoombeMill break – Day 3

Thismorning we headed out on the feeding run again with Farmer Nick and the otherfamilies.

K was first to “drive” this time and really enjoyed it. All thechildren have been really good at taking it in turns to “drive”.

We took the same route as yesterday, but today we had an extra stop on the wayto the rabbits as Farmer Nick had to out 2 piglets into the stock trailer. Theyhad already been rounded up, so was just a case of getting them into thetrailer.

Everybody hopped out of the trailer that Farmer Nick pulls with his tractor. Istayed in the trailer as A had fallen asleep on the feeding run, again! Itmust be all the fresh air that is making her so tired!!

It’s been a bit windy this morning, so we decided to head off to a superstorethat I used to visit as a youngster. I would spend hours roaming the books andcraft section whilst my parents and Nan wondered around the rest of the store.My Grandad would spend his time outside with my youngest sister and keeperoccupied by putting her on the 20p machines outside. He would spend monthssaving up his 20p coins purely for that occasion.

We had some lunch, then took a wander around the store before heading back tothe cottage to get ready for Trick or Treating around the participating accommodations.

Everyone who was participating was to leave a pumpkin outside. We managed tograb a pumpkin from town yesterday, but it was rather small compared to some ofthe pumpkins that had been put out!

At 5:30 everyone met at the Reception and Fiona led us all round theproperties. We started off at our cottage. I had A with us, but as it hadstarted to rain slightly I dropped her off with P.

As we made our way round the properties the rain was getting heavier andheavier. By the time we had finished and got back to our cottage we weresoaked! The children enjoyed it though as they have never been trick ortreating before. I normally just let them dress up at home and hand out thesweets to anyone who knocks on our door, so it was a real novelty to actuallygo trick or treating!

    Shame about the rain on the trick or treating, I think it was us parents it bothered the most, the children were preoccupied with sweetie gathering!
    I love the photo of A asleep on P's shoulder, she looks exhausted! (Cornish air)
