Today being Monday is when we look after the littleLeamans and, sadly, it’ll be Esme’s last Monday as in September she’ll be at Big School. Already she talks of Rocco and Tove as the “little kids.” So, having clinched a double-glazing deal with Graham, we set off to Hayes Hill Farm to celebrate both the new windows and Esme’s coming of age. Hayes Hill Farm was once Sheila’s family farm and her great grandparents had 24 children and they all lived in the tiny farmhouse. Sheila’s family also at other times occupied Woodside, Holyfield Hall Farm and Fisher’s Green Farm – all nearby. This story did not however cut any ice with the reception and I duly paid £28 entrance fees.
