Well hello all, I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather. Last week of the summer holidays … hasn’t it passed in a flash?
We’ve spent the last week in glorious France. This is La Bourbansais zoo in Brittany . A stunning place with a Chateau which you can pay to look inside (sorry, no pictures as we didn’t venture inside as my children were intent on spending their time outside). We had a fantastic time there looking at beautiful animals kept in natural enclosures, watching a falconry display and the dog team display. There was also a little bouncy castle area for smaller visitors. It was a lovely and relaxing day out.
We also spent time in Dinan … oooh shopping! This was my favourite shop – a veritable treasure trove. It was fairly small on the inside so I managed to visit for only a short amount of time before the stress of ensuring that Little Miss H didn’t knock anything over became too much for me.
Crepes and Gallettes were eaten a lot that day. Little Miss H took her notebook and some pens so lunch was a chilled affair, sat outside the cafe watching the world go by. Bliss. There was also a sculpture display in one of the little backstreets – Oh how I loved this one. If I could of I’d have taken it home with me – although not sure where I would have put it!
So peaceful inside and just glorious. Again we were blessed with stunningly beautiful weather.
Now for a little crochet, just a little mind. This is my little basket for a friend who has just had a beautiful baby boy. It includes bootees, owl hat, bobble blanket, little pirate socks and two babygro’s. I hope she’ll like it.
The next picture is a ‘Can you guess what it is yet?’ I’ll give you a very small clue. It was inspired by a notebook that I just couldn’t resist from Paperchase. It just seemed to jump into my basket (yes basket!) What do you think it might become?
Until the next time, enjoy the stunning weather!
