Montagu is a little taste of heaven on earth and that is exactly what we enjoyed as a family last weekend! We have loved staying at 'Farmer Koos's' farm over the years and the boys definitely treat it like a second home.
The weather was perfect - 29 degrees in the winter! - beautiful sunny days. Joel and Eli spent the whole time outside making up adventures on the rocks which they could now climb, playing with the animals that roam freely around the farm and enjoying braai'ing and eating Dad's beef potjie!
We also enjoyed a great meal out together on Sunday night at Jam Tarts, a restaurant we have got to know. They cannot do enough to make us welcome and Joel, in particular, enjoyed his garlic prawns - which the lady knows to make, despite them not being on the menu!!!
We also managed to enjoy relax time because the boys were so chilled and even got some book time, which was great! You cannot help but be rejuvenated when surrounded by mountains and peaceful farm land and we have returned home ready to 'face the action' and get stuck in again to the often difficult and draining work that we are involved in. Thank you Lord for breaks like this!
