Saturday morning we wnadered up to the local park for an annual Nature's Harvest event.
G fell in love with the ferrets who were very cosily nestled in their fleece blankets waiting their turn in the racing competitions. Money raised from the races goes towards an animal charity. Cute but smelly. The ferrets that is not G.
S made a bird feeder with seeds and vegetable fat using a plastic drinking cup as a mould.
There was also live music, a bird of prey display, a stall selling old English varieties of apples and pears. a pottery workshop, face painting, farm animals to pet and a climbing wall.
We also paid a visit to the nursery next door to the park and liked this display of the different coloured heucheras.
T was the only person to leave the house on Sunday as one of our neighbours is on holiday and he has taken responsibility for feeding their cats. In fact the majority of us didn't get dressed, but we did play Connect 4 and Tumbling Monkeys, we played word games, we played flap the paper fish across the dining room floor with the recently collected school prospectuses, we played Wii, we tidied bedrooms, we even managed a bit of homework without too much grumbling and we ate a lovely roast dinner.
All in all it was a very relaxing day and this was the view I had when I flopped down on the sofa with a cuppa and a book at 7pm before I began the mountain of ironing.
