Its giveaway day! And the winner is.........Annie from A Saucerful of Secrets. E was charmed by your memory and could imagine the scene, cold night, golden light and biscuits! So this little bunny is on his way to you when I can get your address. Thankyou for all your memories it was lovely reading them. I have lots of treasured memories of christmas, coming from a large family, I have three brothers and three sisters, christmas was always a very jolly time with lots going on and usually a house stuffed full of family and friends. One of my warmest memories is when I got my first 'hard' doll (I had only had soft toys till then) I named her Sarah and my mum had knitted her a load of clothes and better still she came in a pram, an old fashioned (I think my dad had got it second hand) type that had a hood at both ends! I had to share this with my little sister and mum had made all the bedding for that too.
It was E's birthday yesterday and for his treat he wanted to go to the zoo! He is only 48 you know. We went to Newquay Zoo and although it is only tiny we were very impressed. I must admit that I do not like seeing animals in cages but as E says they are safer there than in the wild nowadays. As it wasn't a very nice day there were hardly any other people there it was almost like our own private zoo. We saw the penguins fed and the lion, the penguins weren't fed to the lion I might add.
The meercats were so sweet there was a little one following the older ones around, even though they are safe in a zoo there was always one on lookout! This Lynx was gorgeous and I could have reached over and touched it, it was so close. The animals that totally charmed me were the marmoset's at the top who had an island on a pond to live on they were so cute and again there was a baby that must have only been about 10 inches long (never stayed still enough for me to get a pic) they chirped like birds and I could have stayed and watched them all day. It was a lovely day we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we will go back soon I think.
Here are Bunny bracelet and some Noddy necklaces that I tried to put on the last post, aren't they fun!
