Over the past few days I've been making monkeys. I was halted for a while when I was waiting delivery of a huge box of stuffing. Once it had arrived though, there was nothing stopping me and so now I am back up and running again. I thought I would introduce you to the latest monkeys.
Above is Laura. She is for sale on Ra Ra Bazaar.
This is Zak who has been adopted
This is Milly who has also been adopted.
More monkeys coming soon!
All my monkeys are CE tested and certified. You can read more about the process HERE

This morning I was doing the mum taxi thing and had a few minutes to spare, so we headed down to North Ferriby River Bank.
The River Humber is vast and in the distance, on the other side you could just make out a factory and the hills and trees. Even the Humber Bridge was shrouded in a thick coating of fog. We walked a little way towards the bridge with the water lapping near by. The foggy cover was strangely lit by a very bright sun which gave some stunning light on the water.
I attempted to catch this beautiful site on the camera, but not being an expert, it really didn't work, so instead I took photos of the amazing worn wood that is prominent all the way along this stretch of bank.

Walking up to church this morning it was beautiful to see the snowdrops with their heads dancing in the breeze. There are so many tiny shoots starting to appear and in the next few weeks they will flourish into glorious life.
Who would have thought something so natural as a little flower could make someone so happy.
Today I visited an elderly lady to drop in a birthday card. She showed me a lovely floral arrangement that her church had give her for her birthday and she glowed with pride as over and over again she said "isn't it beautiful"
