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
