Our Holiday Adventure Part 2

and T stands for Toys and Treats

long, picture heavy post
We left Crewe train station on another Pendolino and headed for Manchester Piccadilly where we were due to meet Lynn Holland for the very first time. We were both very excited.

When we got off the train, we saw that Lynn's husband, Phillip was there to greet us as well; such a lovely surprise. It was so nice to give Lynn a hu-uge hug at last, and Wee Man was a real gentleman and shook their hands. And in Wee Man's own words, "It was very nice to meet such a nice lady with a beautiful smile." Awww

Wee Man was very eager to show Lynn his toy car that is the 'exact' replica of her own beloved VW Beetle, affectionately called Frida.

When we got to Hindle Pastures Barn, where we were going to stay, we saw that Helen was there and so was her husband Richard, our friends from Cardiff that we met last October. It was so nice to see them again and give them hugs.

Helen showed us around the huge house and we chose which bedroom we wanted. 
Wee Man 'made it our home'
and declared the bathroom, with it's shower 
and a big jacuzzi bath, big enough to have a party in, haha
We all ate together and Wee Man enjoyed his first jacuzzi bath then went to bed a little later.

On Monday we went to Lynn's and then we went to Animal Quackers Petting Farm
Lynn said that the goats were very gentle when they took food from her hand
and the wee lambs were very cute too.
Later on we went to Falinge Play park where Wee Man had lots of fun on a metal digger in the sand pit

Back at 'The Hindle' Wee Man enjoyed talking to the people looking after some horses there. He learnt several of the horses names and found out that a couple of them are over 25 years old.

On Tuesday we went to one of Lynn's favourite places, Park Farm Shop & Tea Room for lunch.
We all had different things and it was all perfectly cooked. 
Wee Man enjoyed a banana milkshake in a vintage style milk bottle.
I bet my T on Tuesday friends will  like this image.
Look girls, no cake!! 
Then he went out to play whilst Lynn, Helen and I had teas and coffees and chatted, (still no cake. weren't we good?!).
In the evening we all went for a walk across the moor.  
We fed the fish in the Hindle pond and laughed at the ducks chasing each other around.

Thanks for sticking around if you've reached this far, I honestly hadn't realised how much there was to tell you, I do hope you aren't bored with this long tale. We've only ever had adventures 2 and 3 days long before so 8 days has made a big difference, and we do thank you for staying around with us {{Hugs}} :-D 

Part 3 coming soon

Love from Wee Man :-D
