That reindeer looks drunk

Yesterday afternoon I was consumed by a need to get out of the house.  Anywhere!

So I went to a winter wonderland.  Actually it’s a local garden centre but I know they usually have something special for children and the Big Kid inside me needed a bit of childishness.

This particular Garden Centre plays very fair I think, as the wonderland bit isn’t near many things which would provoke a five year old’s “I want”.  There’s a train to ride on and doubtless the elderly bearded gentleman will make an appearance at weekends closer to Christmas but there are no toys etc in the vicinity.

There’s a trio of polar bears playing seasonal music. 

And a bear with a hand at a useful height for a child to have a photo taken.

The reindeer are getting in training for flying

Even if this reindeer seems to have more of a taste for sherry than carrots.


  1. I think I had the same expression on my face as the reindeer when I walked in the door today to find hubby ripping the kitchen apart!!!

  2. What a great place! I love that big bear! That reindeer looks a bit like me in the morning!

  3. Spelling mistake in the previous comment!
    I find that it is all happening too early. The lovely thing about our little corner of France was that nothing began before about 10th Dec.
