Scavenger Hunt

School's out!

Yep it's finished.
What a relief, I was definitely running on empty.

The trip we went on this week was to Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park. We think we saw him, well, we saw his dog and people working around some penned sheep, so that's near enough for me.

Of course, there were lots of lovely animals.
Starting at the top; Herdwick Sheep, Gloucester Old Spot piglets, White Park cow, Gloucester cow having a munch, Tamworth piglets, Kune Kune piglets, Cotswold Sheep (not very wooly having been shorn), Highland cow and and Iron Age pig with her piglets.
It was great until about an hour before we were due to leave and the heavens opened! Boy did we get wet, not that the kids were bothered!

Today I've been preparing for our holiday. Charging batteries, trying to remember things like marmite, tea bags, torches and the most important things ~ blankets! I don't like getting cold at night!
I've pulled out an array of fleeces and DS's blanket is having it's first camping trip. Quite often all of the blankets end up wrapped around me and the rest of the Clicky Needles gang complain that they're too hot!

I've decided to crack on whilst we're away with the Little Granny Squares although it might be a squash getting my crochet bag in, DD's BF is joining us too. Another person in the car will have it bursting at the seams! Just as well we are only going to Exeter with a fairly short journey time!
Although it's raining at the moment the weather forecast is looking good for the weekend and beyond, so thanks very much if you asked for sunshine it seems to have worked.

Must go now I need to find the mallet.
Have a great week......Clicky Needles.
