My Dream Home
I would love to live in a little stone farmhouse, complete with lush, rolling fields. With a warm fireplace, big bowls of fruit on a wooden table, and windowsills full of clay pots of flowers. Look! It’s my bowl. Where we can sit outside on a blanket, under a tree, surrounded by flowers, eating a picnic. In a small village with a summer fete. Where children can run and play safely, there’s a gorgeous church down the lane and maybe even a few cows on the lawn. Where you can buy fruits, veg, bread, pastries, flowers, even fabric at the market. Where everywhere I look there are green rolling fields, stone walls and bridges, and sweet animals. Well, a girl can dream, can’t she? All images from James Herriot’s Treasury for Children, one of my favourite children’s books.
