Marsh Farm……a great day out with my Grandchildren.

This school holiday theme at Marsh Farm is Fairies and Dragons (with Knights too of course). A role for each of my 3 Grandchildren…..perfect!!

When my own children were young, Marsh Farm was mainly animals with a few crafts added in (for an extra fee). It was one of our go to places so we knew it well. It didn’t change much over that time.

Now I’m a Grandparent and there has been a huge change at Marsh Farm. It’s now much more entertaining for the children. A great mix of animals and shows, and the staff are fantastic!!

You need to have children with you in order to gain entry now but you can always borrow one from a neighbour (with permission of course lol).

We had a really fun day. We learnt to dance at fairy school and met a real life knight and dragon!

My eldest granddaughter has shown an interest in photography in the past so I decided to let her use my camera to take “some” photographs. She took over 300!!

Here are a few of our day that she took:

I think she did really well for a beginner! I’m very proud of her. Here she is breathing her fire.

My middle Granddaughter was picked to go onto the stage for the magic show and she loved every minute of it.

We had such a fun day as you can see here.

If you are in the South Woodham Ferrers area I would definitely recommend a visit to Marsh Farm! There is plenty to do even on rainy days.

We coloured Fairy crowns and Knights shields. We played in the barn and had a very reasonably priced lunch there too!

We bounced, ran, climbed, played mini golf, found treasure in the sand, rode a carousel, stroked some goats and horses and all included in the entry fee! A great value day out!

Life is ever changing…….


Do you ever say “this isn’t how I expected my life to be?” I have said that so many times! When we are children we have such an idyllic outlook on life but it isn’t that simple. Life is full of complications.

I have had so many twists and turns in my life but, most recently, it was Morgan who dramatically changed my life. He is my third kidney; the result of my kidney transplant on Valentines day 2017 (Morgan the organ….get it?). I am still getting over the effects of my transplant and will be including those in my blog.

I have decided to journal my life as it takes these unexpected changes that we all experience in this journey called life.

Coming up I will be covering most aspects of my life including; slimming, crafting, ballet, theatre, walking, food, restaurants, pets, being a Grandparent, gardening, gigs, Asperger’s syndrome and my life in general.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Wal
