Happiness is a wonderful family day out

We’d decided with it being Bank Holiday weekend that we should have a family day out together and as today was the better weather forecast off we set to Wollaton Hall and Park in Nottinghamshire.  I have very fond memories of the Hall as it was somewhere my parents used to take my brother and I regularly as children so it was great to take Little G there today.  

Wollaton Hall

The Tudor Hall was originally built in 1588 and has been a small natural history museum since the 1920’s.  On a fine day it’s great to go and have a look at the exhibits and then walk round the gardens. 


and it appears that yarn follows me everywhere!  We came across this yarn bomb on a park bench in the gardens!  It was knitted not crochet but equally as awesome in my book – I just love the different pastel colour stripes.


As well as the Hall and Gardens we also took a little walk in the deer park.  The deer are completely wild but don’t seem to mind all the nosy humans as long as they are nice and quiet and don’t get to close – even so they allowed us to get pretty close! 


We were blessed with good weather (the clouds passed mid afternoon and we actually saw sun!) and Little G was as good as gold; a perfect Princess of May!


Wonderful, happy day!
