When We Should Becomes We Must

Time tends to fly when you keep putting something off. The more you say to each other "we should do that" without actually doing it, the faster the time seems to go. Suddenly, you realise that you have been saying it for years.

During the school holidays we FINALLY made a trip to the farm where my husband spent many of his holidays and weekends as a youth. He can tell many exciting tales from his visits.

It had always been our intention to take the kids for regular visits, so they too could have their own experiences to tell tales about.

Time got away from us, and before we knew it, we realised that Master 5 had yet to stay at the farm, and Miss 9 could not remember her brief visit at all.

How had this happened?

Even before the kids were born, hubby was excited at the prospect of our children having the joy of visiting his old stomping ground. He wanted to show them how the sheep run through the race ready for shearing, the deer as they run together, the way the land is worked, the full day of a farmer, how a fence is twitched, how to drive a tractor, and the wonder of baby farm animals.

Somehow, there had been so much other stuff that had to be done.

Weekends and holidays had been taken up with chores around the house, the weather was either too hot or too cold, one of us was unwell, blah, blah, blah.

Sometimes, there comes a point where you just need to say, ENOUGH!
When you really want to do something, you need to make it happen.

Plan it, write it on the calendar, moves others things around if necessary.

So, excitedly, I am drafting a post all about our farm visit.

It went so well, that I have a feeling we will be going back to the farm soon.

Stay tuned.
