Giveaway win, World Book Night and Cotswold Farm Park

Hope you've all enjoyed your weekend it's been glorious here. we've been out and about this weekend to visit family and spend sometime together as it's been the bank holiday.

I was very lucky to have a giveaway win from Carolyns blog taking one stitch at a time last month and I won this pretty chart for a humbug and it comes with a very pretty pin to put in it. It's just my cup of tea as it will fit in lovely in my biscornu bowl.

Another lovely bit of post I had last week was a World Book Night copy of the Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry fron Joan. We are reading it as part of the 50 books challenge, although I'm desperately trying to get through my current book so I can start it along with the other group members. It has a lovely inscription inside too.

We celebrated both childrens birthdays last week and as their birthdays we visited the Cotswold Farm Park. It's a lovely day out if anyone watches BBC's Countryfile - it's Adam Hensons farm. (last time we went he was in the cafe!) So here are a few pictures of the Rare breeds that live there.

We had a fabulous time, we got to  feed goats and lambs with bottles and feed other animals in the park with the feed. We had a tractor ride and went on the bouncy pillows and did the small maze. We had a great day and I'd thoroughly recomend it to anyone with children.

Well my next post will show you my picks from the amazing travelling box!!


  1. That's such a lovely pattern! I've never even seen these humbugs - it looks so cute. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
