Walking With Lemurs

We took our four year old grandaughter Mimi to Bewdley Safari Park yesterday
They have a new attraction called 'Walking with  Lemurs'
The Lemurs are roaming free in a woodland setting and you can get really close to them
They are such amazing little creatures and they weren't frightened of humans at all
Mimi loved them as you can see from her face
She has gone home now so peace and serentiy rules again until the other two older grandchildren arrive in the school summer holidays lol!

A Spot of Baking

I have been having a Fimo practice today
I made these 'ickle charms & embellies for my cards
Definate room for improvement here but I am quite pleased with these
The cornet sarted as a cake but the icing got piled too high so I shaped the base into a cone and gave it a flake so it's now a 99 lol
I am now covered in glittery sugar!
