Country Getaway

Ever since I was a little girl, I've spent a few weeks each year up on my grandparents farm where my Mum grew up. It's about a three and a half hours drive from the city where I live, and consists of acres and acres of beautiful countryside. When my mother was growing up they had cows, chickens, sheep, dogs, cats, you name it. Now, because there's only my 98 year old Grandma living on it, there's just cows and a few crops but as you can imagine, there's always loads to do.

This past week I've been up on the farm and thought I'd bring along my good camera to take some pictures to share on my blog! I had a really fun week driving the ute, tending to the cattle, mushroom picking and catching up with all my relatives that live in the area. My Grandma's house is quite old and so it felt a little like I was camping but just with a roof over head haha. The toilets don't flush so you have to get buckets of water each morning to manually flush the toilet, the hot water doesn't work very well, there isn't any heating, limited amounts of wifi and reception and more than the odd mouse running around. I must say however, this did make it all the more fun because we had so many laughs and inside jokes by the end of the trip!

Being a country girl at heart, it was really nice to get out of the city for awhile, breathe some fresh air and also catch up with extended family.

When's the last time you had a change of scenery?
