At the start of the summer holidays it was decided that this year everyone would have one official day off a week . The farmers all have their one day a week where they are off , now The farmer and eldest farmer haven’t really taken their days off . This is mostly to do with the weather and there being jobs that just have to get done those days .
I only finished up in school last Tuesday but I took my official day off on Friday . I wanted to take Sid somewhere to have some fun and also we had a few little jobs to do . All Sid wants to do is go swimming in the sea but the most he will do is put his feet in , so of course when I asked him what we should do was he said go to the beach ! . The weather wasn’t that nice here Friday morning it was very dull and a little cool so after a chat we decided we would head to Wells House just outside Gorey in Co Wexford .
We love Wells house and what’s even nicer is its close enough to home . We try to go a couple of times a year and it’s only €8 per car to get in the there is lots to do after that . There is a great play ground for all ages which has been improved since we were last there at Christmas , the Irish wildlife sanctuary is there , there are lots of walks to find the fairy doors and all are on good paths which would be buggy and wheelchair accessible .
There is also a really nice cafe to get food and a coffee and sometimes over the summer they have an outdoor BBQ and music . We got our lunch there on Tuesday and it was really nice and they do good Lattes .
We left Wells just after lunch and headed to town because we had a few little jobs to do and on our way home the farmer rang to say they were doing silage so to finish off the perfect day Sid got to spend most of the afternoon on a tractor and what child doesn’t love a drive in a tractor .
That was our first day off , leave a comment and let us know what you do for your days off 🙂
