Off to the 12th Century

Medieval medicines are made, bags packed, trailers loaded and tied down. Our car is full to bursting with medieval weapons and furniture, food and boxes, and we are finally ready to head to Abbey Medieval Festival.

It’s the event we look forward to most all year. The one where all of our medieval friends gather for 5 days of camping, cooking over fires, sharing our passion for history with the public, and, the best part of all, jolly good visits over cups of mead and spiced wine.

Leaving the farm for 5 days is no easy feat, but we’ve been working hard to make sure all the animals have plenty of food and water, and we have wonderful caretakers who keep an eye on things to make sure the farm and animals are safe.

As much as Bear and I love our farm, it is pretty darn exciting to think about five whole days without any farm work at all. Yep, we’re just a wee bit excited.

Now I’m off to bed to catch a few hours sleep before our 4 a.m. wake-up. Then we will have hot showers, bid farewell to our caretakers, and set off to Caboolture for our grand medieval adventure.

What are you looking forward to most this week? xo

Kim - Liv Life - I hope you have a wonderful time with the event and good friends! I’ve never seen anything like that around here, but I so wish I could attend! Can’t wait for your return with some fabulous stories!

Turkey's For Life - All sounds very exciting. Is this the same festival you went to last year? Not surprised you’re excited about five days away from farm work – nuch as you love it. 🙂

Maureen - I hope your adventure was as much fun as last year. Can’t wait for the photos!

liz @ Strayed Table - I look forward to seeing the photos from your weekend. I have always wanted to get to the Medieval Fair but it always ended up on my birthday and I then end up with plans. I can only try for next year. I totally agree with leaving a farm is hard, when you work every day and have animals to look after people don’t get that you just can’t walk away. Hope your five days off were fantastic.

Nagi | RecipeTin Eats - Your life is one that I can’t imagine!!! So much more responsibility than even being a parent – at least you can pack the kids up with you (or send them off to nana’s). Can’t do that with farm animals! Enjoy your adventures 🙂 Look forward to reading about them!

Anna Johnston - I love love looooove that you go to these fairs. You are so cool. And I have loved seeing your pictures from the fair on social media very much too. Enjoy your weekend lovely one.
