Strawberry Picking Saturday...

Hey Blogland, 

So today after I had my antibiotics my big sister rang up asking if any of us wanted to go strawberry picking with her and my oldest nephew Jaydon. I decided to tag along because one I'm a little bit in love with strawberries at the moment because my tastes buds are little bit out of sorts what with me being on all these antibiotics still, and strawberries are one of the few things that still taste the same. Also I'm trying to rebuild the strength in my legs and a walk round a few fields would do me some good. 

The place we went was really cute it did lots of different things, so you could pick strawberries raspberries, potatoes, carrots and a bunch of other vegetables and fruits. There was also a little farm bit where they keep goats, alpaca's, turkey's, horses and other animals which if you felt so inclined to could actually milk. 

They also had a little shop with lots of homemade jams and cream and lots of other cute farm things that you only ever find in farmers markets and places like that. My highlight of the day was however something completely unrelated to any of this really but my favourite ice-cream or should I say favourite Magnum ice-cream of all time is the Double Caramel Magnum. Now this ice-cream is a childhood favourite and I haven't had in years I don;t know what they did to it, whether it was a limited addition or whatever but whatever the case is I haven't seen it in a very long time. Then I happen across it in this little farm shop where I became a child again. It was so good classic dairy milk chocolate shell, gooey caramel layer, thin layer of dark chocolate and then yummy vanilla ice-cream. It's really hard to explain exactly what it is I love so much about it but it really is amazing!

Also some amazing news from transplant community today 2 people got their calls for new lungs one was Kirstie and she is 23 years old and it's actually her second double lung transplant. She went into chronic rejection and alot of other complicated issues that I can't even begin to comprehend but she was only given a few weeks left to live and it really is a miracle that they found a match for her and I'm so unbelievably happy for her! Then there was Katie who just tweeted not too long ago that the lungs were a go and she is a 14 year old girl who has been waiting for quite a while and I'm so happy for her too. It's been a good day for the transplant community. I felt like for a while it's been a bit doom and gloom but this has perked me right up :) So hopefully their transplants will go smoothly and they'll both be on the road to recovery very soon :) 

Here's a few pictures I took from the day :)

    1. Sometimes I think I imagined that ice-cream as a child lol. I wonder why they don't mass produce it anymore? Strange companies :) xoxo
