little baby lambsies, aaahhh

Over the Easter break, spinnotts had the chance to provide spinning demonstrations alongside the Clumber Park  Easter lambing event so I thought I would post a couple of pics just to prove that we were there :-)

getting ourselves organised before the onslaught! we had a good time but I was somewhat put out by the behaviour of some of the parents who seemed to think that we were part of a theme park. One woman even put her child on the treadles of one of the wheels and encouraged him to jump up and down. When politely asked to remove him her comment was that she thought it was there for demonstration suspect she meant demolition which would have been the result if he had not been spotted! Others stood watching whilst their children tried to get on to the wheels even when they were being used so next time there will be keep off notices.Even though I hate to do it but it will be safer than having to unravel one of the little darlings from the yarn being spun.

I must say that this is the first time we have encountered this behaivour and I am hoping that it will be the last but I am not that confident.

Education is getting worse and worse, I can see it's not only a French problem.

when I was small I knew how my parents wanted me to behave and they let me know when I was in the wrong. These parents didn't seem to know the difference or care about peoples property. Its sad that a few spoil things for the others.

Sad to say, I've seen and experienced the same sort of thing in the U.S.
