Hello from the New Forest!!

Postby emilyjane » Thu Jun 24, 2010 10:01 am

Hi there. :idea:

I have just stumbled upno this site whilst looking for a second hand Mei Tai to buy! I love what I have seen so far!

I wish I had found this site when I was pregnant. I could have done with some sensible advice! Ho hum. Better late than never.

I am 38 years old and am married to Matthew. We have 4 children, J who is 10 years, T is 7, H is 6 and E who is 16 months. We like on the south coast near the New Forest, on a dairy and arable farm, where my husband works with his Dad and Step Mum. We live in the main farmhouse which is lovely! It has been dated back to 1548! We are so lucky to have the lifestyle we have, although, it can be tough at times, what with working hours for Matthew and the tie with the animals. I have a horse, which we drive with a cart which is big enough for us all to fit in! We plod off around the village a couple of times a week. It is lovely and peaceful. I also have 3 doge, 4 cats and various chickens, ducks and geese! I also have a large veg plot, where I try to grow a wide selection of veg so we know exactly what we are eating. Providing the slugs/ducks/hens etc don't get to them first!!

I hope to be able to gain advice from this site and you never know, I may even be able to offer some too from time to time!

Big hugs,

Sarah. Breastfeeding, cloth using, babywearing, veg growing Mum of 4! xx :wink:
