Flutter Butterfly!

Little dear's parking, very woman like, and a man having to rescue her.
Trying to catch butterflies very unsuccessfully.


Little dear had a school trip today to here http://www.butterflyhouse.co.uk/ .

I have to say It was a really good day, I would of liked to have had a better look around but my friend is not as interested in wildlife as me. There was plenty to see and do and the picnic rooms have some fab things for the kids to play with particularly around 3-7 year olds. The outdoor play area is really good as well as there is a large sandpit, zip wire, cart track and a great set of table & chairs to sit at for the adults.

It is not big place so I can imagine at times it would be horrendous, but there were 3 school parties and a few others people and that was probably enough.
It's my birthday tomorrow, my sister is making me lunch, my mum & dad are taking me out for an Indian and in between me & my sister, little dear are taking my Grandad out to Clumber Park as there is a war exhibition on and that's my Grandad's dig. My Grandad is very lonely as my Nan went into a care home just after Christmas. In one way he is relieved but he is very lonely, if you pop in for 10 minutes, 2 hours later you are stil there.
Anyway must go and jet wash the little dear down as she is filthy black.

happy birthday for tomorrow, hope you have a good day, we didn't go so far after all due to the weather, just to Worksop as hubby wanted the DVD from the 50's, we eventually found it at Middletons pet shop!
