Dad’s Diary 6: Lambing Season

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.

Today’s podcast, Lambing Season, is a longer episode – an outside broadcast as we take a walk around the farm and meet this season’s new arrivals. Be sure to come back next week for a bonus late night episode from the home paddock!
