Cuddly Furry Things!

Hello friends
Today we leave Torquay - wow that week went by so fast!
We have had a brilliant relaxing time, been to lots of places but my favourite has to be...
The scenery is stunning and the sun shone beautifully.
We arrived as it opened and was immediately put to work...
bringing the baby Pygmy goats up to the barn.
I fell in love a little bit with this one...
 Both my boys are true animal lovers.
We met Spirit the Barn Owl.
Mitchell was rather taken with the chicks!
We did see the baby pigs and got to cuddle them...
but just one picture of Mitchell as the camera battery died!! 
In one week we have been to a model village, seen otters, butterflies,
stepped back in time at Bygones, bowling, cinema, adventure golf, aquarium, shopping,
sight seeing, Pennywell Farm, amusement arcades, hill walking!
Indulged in cream teas, fish and chips, steak dinners, ice cream and more!
I call that a very successful holiday and none of it would have been possible without
the help of The Royal Marsden, Clic Sargent and THNN - thank you so much.

We are sad to leave but looking forward to seeing Bella!
Back to work soon and lots of craft, many new things coming your way!
Take care friends.

I'm so glad you had such a good time - you certainly seemed to fit a lot into one week! You all deserved a holiday treat but I expect that Bella will be glad to see you again.

I'm so pleased you all had a brilliant holiday. It is so deserved, after a tough year and all your family's hard work for the charities so close to your hearts.
Safe journey home.

So glad you had a great time, boy you packed in a lot, didn't you. If I'd done that much, I'd have been wiped out. Well deserved, and very special as it was courtesy of the Great Marsden. Elliott is through his tough year, and hopefully that will be that. Take are on the drive home, Bella will want to see you all in one piece.

Hi Christine, your week sounds perfect. So pleased you had a wonderful time all of you together. The icing on the cake would have been having Bella there but at least she will have been suitably spoilt by your Mum and Dad. Bet she will have extra cuddles from her Mummy when she you get home.
Thank you for sharing your week with us.

P.S. Love the pic of the piglet. Soooo cute.

Hi Christine
I have just had a quick look at THNN will have a closer look later as it looks to be a very deserving charity, we sometimes don't know they are there let alone how we can help them .....

Well you certainly have had a good time and well deserved , i just love the little baby piglet .
Give Bella a big cuddle from me as i have missed her .
Take Care

A much deserved break for you and your boys and it looks like you had a good time. The little farm looked great, hope you had a smooth journey home and thanks for sharing your pics x

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Christine, These are definitely Awwwwwwwwwww piccies today. I love those babies, I would have wanted to take them home haha. Gorgeous views too, you certainly packed a lot into your stay in Torquay. Safe journey home, I know Bella will be 'jumping for joy' when she sees you, either that or she will 'snub' you for leaving her (that's what my poodles used to do if I had been away, they would rush to the door to greet me and immediately turn round and 'snub' me haha, it didn't last long though).
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Teresa said...

What a fun holiday for all of you :) I am so happy that you got to go out with the boys and enjoy yourselves the looks on their faces pretty much says it all. I love the farm too and would have happily taken a few home much to my family saying no mum we don't need any more animals :) Anyway hope you have an amazing week... lots of hugs :)
