Dad’s Diary 4: Henhouse and Heritage

Dad's Diary logo

Dad’s Diary is just that – a selection of journal entries and blog posts written by a husband of one and father of four at some point over the last 20 years. In that time, the family has grown up and moved half way round the world, leaving the inner city for a small farm 12,000 miles away.

The first three podcasts in this series provided a glimpse of our old life in inner-city London. Today’s podcast, Henhouse and Heritage, is the first of a two-parter that balances those episodes with a story from our present life in rural New Zealand.
