Places we have been and things we have done

Trip to Sylvanian Families Popup shop in Soho, London.

SF is a great shop but they have unbelievable prices. The things I got from there was the Persian cat family, the Persian cat babies which were separate and a blue seven seater car and all of that was like £51.97.

But like I said at the beginning it is a great shop but I think they should lower the prices a bit.
If I had unlimited money I would literally buy the whole shop and take it all home. The shop is amazing, all the characters are so cute and all the cars and houses are really cool. The people in the shop are very nice and I definitely want to go there again. So if you like SF go and check it out.

Pumpkin Picking Patch, Sompting, West Sussex.

On a Sunday morning me and my Mum and my sister Ruby got in our car and we went to a pumpkin picking patch. I already knew that you could get blue pumpkins and orange ones because we have picked them before. We parked in a muddy field and went into the pumpkin field. There were wheelbarrows that people could use to put their pumpkins or their children in if they wanted to. Me and Ruby had one each and we walked around the whole field looking for different kind of pumpkins. We found lots of them. Some very funny shaped and they were all different colours. We picked the ones we wanted and then Mum made us stand in the pumpkin house for some photos. We had an ice cream each from the ice cream van and the lady there was really nice. Mum paid for the pumpkins and then we got in the car. It took a long time to get out of the field because there were lots of people. It was good fun though and I want to go again. The pumpkins were a lot of money but we had fun so Mum said that was ok.
Then we went to the beach to get the mud off our wellies but Ruby pushed me in and I got really wet so we had to go home.

Fishers Farm Park, Wisborough Green, West Sussex

We went here on Sunday afternoon because me and Emily were feeling sad because it was one year since our Grandad died so Mummy said we should go and do something fun because Grandad liked us to be happy. 

We had never been here before or heard of it but it looked good on their website. We got lost on the way there because Mummy had left her phone in the boot so we stopped somewhere so she could get it out. There were loads of cows where we stopped so me and Emily fed them some of their hay and Mummy found out where we needed to go then we got back in the car.
When we got to Fishers Farm the nice lady where you had to pay gave me and Emily a token each to ride a pony and we went straight there. I went on one called Scooter and Emily went on one called Rebel. You go round in a big circle and then get off again. I wished it was longer because I really like horse riding. If we go again then I want to get lots of tokens and do more horse riding.
Then we went into a place that had animals inside it and I was so happy because I found a really cute little sheep that loved me and kept giving me kisses. I wanted to take him home but Mummy said he already had a home. Mummy was happy because she got to stroke some Highland Coos that remind her of Scotland.
Then we went and did some quad biking and it was really funny because Mummy me and Emily had one each and we were having a race. Mummy looked a bit silly when me and Emilys ones ran out of time but hers was still going and me and Emily ran away and left her going round and round.
Then we went and played on some of the play things like the bouncy pillow and zip wire and had a hot chocolate and then we had to go home because it was dark and they were closing.
Me and Emily really want to go back again soon so I can see my sheep and Emily can see her horse that she loves and we can do more quad biking.
If you have never been there then you should go there soon because it is so much fun and the animals like having people to look at.

Ruby has already said a lot of what I was going to write but I think you should all go there soon as well. The money that you pay helps to look after the animals and the animals are all really nice. I found a really big shire horse called Duke that really liked me giving him cuddles and stroking his nose. I wanted to try and sneak him out but Mum said that would be silly because he was really tall. I did ride a different horse though and that was fun even when I thought I was going to fall off. It only costs £1 to ride them which is really cheap.
There were some guinea pigs and other animals too that you could stroke. There are lots of places to wash your hands before and after you stroke the animals.
I really like the quad bikes and next time we go I am going to buy loads of tokens and go on them loads. Those tokens are £1 too. 

There was so many different bits on the farm and we didn’t even do half of them because we only had 3 hours because Mum got us lost before we got there. I think you have to go there for a whole day to do everything that is there. I was really sad to go home because I wanted to explore more. Mum said we can go back again really soon and be there for a whole day. If we do that then I will tell you about the other things that they have there.
I hope you enjoyed reading this and hope that you want to go there too because it is really good fun. But you should wear wellies because it was muddy. And a coat because it was cold.
