I have to say that when it comes to Father’s Day I am a little selfish with the plans I make!
My husband doesn’t really share the love for the great outdoors as much as me, so when I announced we were heading off to pick strawberries his face didn’t exactly light up at the prospect.
The children however were hugely excited as it is certainly a highlight of the summer for them.
Sadly it seems that PYO farms are few and far between these days but we are lucky enough to have one right on our doorstep.
Flower Farm in Godstone is a small farm that has very reasonably priced PYO strawberries and raspberries come July, with the great addition of a well stocked farm shop and lovely tea room where you can grab light bites and of course a delicious afternoon tea.
The sun was beating down on us whilst picking but this didn’t put us off, even my husband got stuck in and said he was throughly enjoying it.
I love activities like this that cost very little money and bring us all together as a family.
It actually gave me time to reflect on the fact I am incredibly lucky to have my husband who always goes out of his way to make us all happy, and maybe this should be reflected in my choice of activity next year!
