What you get for a £1 these days!

You get to play in a shop!

Catch up on some sewing!

Do a bit of ironing!

Put on a puppet show!

Catch some fish!
Do some drawing!

We spent a rainy afternoon at 'The Beatrix Potter Exhibition' at Birnam Arts centre near Dunkeld.
We love Beatrix Potter in this house so as soon as we saw the brown signs we followed them. We did not know quite what to expect but we were most surprised. We were the only people in there, so I got to play as well. The exhibition was great as we got to play with everything and they had put some real thought into it. The shop had an old fashioned till and weighing scales, pretend food, carrier bags. There was even a dressing up section where you could get dressed up as Peter Rabbit, Jeremy Fisher or Mrs Tiggy Winkles. Little dear did not fancy that but it did not spoil it.
We had the most fab afternoon and all for the bargain price of £1 per adult.
I will show you my purchases next time (well you always keep folk wanting more!)

Love Beatrix potter. what a great time and only a £1.

You asked what crabbing was on my blog vanessa. Lots of beaches that have quays and rocks etc you can go crabbing at. You can buy a crabline from the beach shop for a couple of quid, you also need a bucket of water a net and some bait, makeral bits and bacon is the best. You just dangle your lines off the quayside and wait. Its so much fun and really addictive and kids love it. Whats more it doesn't cost much and can entertain for hours.
