Tilly & Her Snowman!

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted since Thursday! We went to Blackpool on Saturday & spent the day in the Pleasure Beach, what a fantastic day we had the weather was perfect, warm, not to hot, no rain just cloudy every now & then! We went on all the rides, me & Katie even went on some of the kiddy ones & they were fab! lol!! Nige & the girls went on Valhalla, which is an indoor water ride & boy did they come off wet, glad I didn't go on it!  We left there about 7pm & stopped on the way home to get some chips, Nige says I ate some & half a sausage but I don't remember anything until yesterday morning when I woke up!! lol!! Spent yesterday watching Bradley Wiggins win TDF , the F1 & the cricket oh & Big Brother from Saturday night lol!! Didn't do anything else!

I thought I'd share a picture with you that I have been meaning to show you for a few weeks now! We went to the wildlife rescue place Gentleshaw, where I donate my cards & we met there newest rescue! 
MARTI the coati  mundi! 

Al he wanted to do was get into my hood! But oh he is a cutie!
