A wonderful winter surprise
Who would have thought, that in the depth of a snowy winter, a glorious sunny day would break through to help create a magical birthday surprise for a group of friends from London. I was honoured to be part of this special celebration called ‘Together at Last’. The bunting was out, the cakes were baked and hay bales surrounded vintage crates for a relaxed gathering on our smallholding. How romantic of a husband to come up with the idea of a Kentish county walk whereby his wife and children would ‘stumble’ across Bessie. Tears of surprise on finding Bessie, friends hiding inside and a specially comissioned cake were soon replaced with lots of laughter. Children wandered to see the ponies and the little dog enjoyed the freedom of a 10 acre field. Here are just a few photos of that special day in January.
