Deramores Woodland Animals: Fox

Here he is. Very cute but still not convinced about the feet

Fairy dolls, glue and shiny bits

Teddy bear picnics, Fancy Dress, Lego and Pig Farms have all featured as themes or, in the case of the farm, venues for parties for the younger Mudlets, over the last few years and each has been a challenge in its’ own right. Fairy dolls i

There has also been a visit to a pottery studio shop for Middle Mudlet and her friends, to celebrate her 6th birthday, during which they each got to paint a pre-cast pottery animal which was then fired before each child could take them home 10 days later. Continue reading
