As the weather was fine (or it was when we set off) we decided to go to Witton Park in Blackburn so the boys could have a run around and to look at the animals there.

Jacob quite likes the swings!

And here is one of the rabbits. I've never seen a rabbit so big! The picture is quite deceptive as there is nothing to compare it against, but it was a big rabbit!!

Unknown to us before we set off, there was a festival being set up for the day with a lot of different stalls. Samuel and I ventured into the tombola tent and we won a new Morgan pink purse for me and a fab tin of Roses!! All for the princely sum of £1!
I also spied some fuchsia hanging baskets. I have hanging baskets every year. I did used to grow everything myself from seed but just don't have the time these days although I usually buy the little plants and grow them on myself. However these hanging baskets were a bargain - £6 each or 2 for £10.

So I got 2 and it was a bit of a struggle to carry them both, heard the kids, carry the chocolates and try and rush as it had started to pour down! But I think the hanging baskets look fab!
And in the afternoon, I made some cards using the Shabby Saturday download from Funky Hand. Pics of those cards to follow later in the week!


  1. It sounds as though you all had a great day out and yes the hanging baskets are gorgeous. I haven't got round to getting mine organised yet......tomorrow is another day that is my motto and before I know the summer's gone

  2. What an idyllic day!! And the baskets are lovely! The pic of Jacob in the swing is perfect, too!
