Catch Up

Last Sunday we thought we decided to have a trip out and being Mothers day I voted for Blackpool Zoo. It's been quite a while since we last visited and local residents got in cheaper if you had proof of your address.
We spent five hours there looking at all the animals and watching some being fed. Some tiny babies, ring tail lemurs, and big babies, tigers. The flamingos were looking ever so bright with their orange plumage and the pelicans were also looking rather peachy. They're in the same enclosure so I guess they're sharing the food.

I've been keeping myself busy keeping an eye on dad to make sure he's OK. In fact he's doing very well.

I've cut out L's gala queen dress and done a little embroidery for the front of the bodice. As you can see it's not quite finished but will be by the end of today and then next week I can start pining and tacking bits together. We have yet to get the material for her coat. L is breaking with tradition again and having a long coat instead of a train. I can't tell…
