We love living so close to the countryside. In our old market town, we have rolling Somerset hills at our feet as well as the convenience of mass shopping and leisure.
As a family we love nothing more than to pull on our wellies for a yomp over the fields close to our home. However, when we go down the bridle path and up over the field we’re no longer protected from the elements as much. It can get pretty windy up there too on a blustery day.
It was really sunny for our walk, after all the grey windy days it lovely to get some sun even if it was still chilly.
I’m wearing a womens waterproof parka by Trespass, isn’t it lovely? It’s lightweight and so comfortable. Windproof, breathable and waterproof with cold heat insulation too which got tested on our walk over the fields in the wind it was cold, my hands were freezing, and the rest of me was toasty warm.
The coat comes a detachable hood with faux fur trim! I love the hood and the herringbone design.
Master H is so considerate of Little Miss, holding her hand and helping her down the step.
We met these guys in the field. Is it bad that a part of me just loves the black sheep!? I liked this guy.
I love sheep, I remember feeding them when I was growing up at my grandparents farm and it creates a warm memory for me.
Because the sheep were in, there was an electric fence around the perimeter and this made our walk a lot shorter than usual due to our little bolter! My heart couldn’t take it, these guys took us in their stride though! I think we were probably a source of entertainment for them.
I had to run after the kids trying to steer them away from the animals, dealing with tantrums, lifting them over the low electric fence and down the steep steps. My Trespass coat was easy to move in which is so important as a mum. I love it and it makes a welcome addition to my winter wardrobe.
