in the rare breeds tent were some lovely bunnies and guinea pigs - just had to take a pic of this one, sooooo cute! (i remember when mine were young i didn't dare go in these tents as all the way home it would be 'can we pleeeeeease have a bunny/guinea pig'!
and there's more:-
these alpacas were gorgeous and, even better, there was a stand with some of their yarn - it was soooo soft, but i restrained myself from buying any (if you could see my stash you would know why!) and took one of their leaflets instead!
a really good caption for this pic wins a prize! silverpebble has already come up with a good one - anyone else! the prize is either a pack of fat quarters, some yarn, or the latest book by gil mcneil called 'needles and pearls'!
on the following sunday emily and i and my mum went up to london - my cousin from germany (mum is german) was over with her daughter and we were going to meet up - we had not seen each other for 25 years (although my mum pops over on the plane once a year to stay with her sister)
we met on westminster bridge, i suddenly heard this voice yelling my name, and there they were on the other side of the road! it was lovely to see them. we took them to covent garden as they had never been and had tea and wandered round the craft stalls - lots of lovely things - i did find the button lady and succombed to some lovely buttons (have not taken pics of those yet, sorry!). we watched some street performers, i always love these-this guy was a statue, and then, of course, suddenly moved, he nearly gave one lady a heart attack! did some more touristy things, trafalgar square, piccadilly, then shopping ensued - regent street, hamleys, where some cuddly toys were purchased (never too old for those!) and finally ended up in the restaurant Planet Hollywood - that was fun - my mum's face was a picture as the music and film clips you can watch whilst waiting for your meal were a bit loud! also when asking for a drink she ordered a lager and they brought her a pint! she nearly died, 'i can't drink all that' she said
when we left i asked emily how much granma had drunk - at least three quarters she said! i thought there was a spring in her step!
just caught molly chewing a basket - i think she just waits for me to get on the blogoverse - a minute ago, well it seemed only a minute, she was chewing on her bone!
