Pig Racing and Making

Hello all.....
Well its been a busy week.
This weekend has been a little bit different to last, the weather mainly.
Last weekend was full of sun this weekend overcast and blah!
But it hasn't spoilt our fun.
Today we all jumped into my best friends car and took a trip to the local farm park.
It's a lovely place to visit with friendly staff and lots to keep children and adults busy.
Well worth a visit if your ever in the area.
Here are some photos from our trip....
Pig racing...they seem to really enjoy it.
Isabelle the cow very kindly let us practice our milking skills on her.
Here's my daughter having a go at milking.
and sorry couldn't resist a photo of this super cute baby bunnies.
I have been crocheting away making owls and bows mostly this week.
The charity shop that I volunteer at has asked me to make some crafts for them so I've been busy making. I had to literally blow the dust off my sewing machine, but have put it to some use this week making tote bags and hanging hearts.
Here are some of the crocheted owls and bows....

 The owls are wonderful and I think I might be a bit addicted to making them! Check out the tutorial here on one of my favourite blogs.
The last thing to tell you about is our house guest, my Grannie's dog Flossie.
Here she is surveying the garden it was nice to have a doggie for a few days although my cats nearly disowned me!
Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend


  1. I did enjoy my visit to the Farm Park FB - lovely pics and I think the visit would have been especially exciting for your daughter! Thank you!
    You have been very industrious since last we heard from you - your little owls are very cute and nicely done - you shouldn't have much trouble in hatching a few KittyKats out?
    I hope your week is a really good one with plenty real sunshine!
