Steel wool cages cannot hold us.

Things didn't get off to a great start when this was one of the first things we spotted

Of course it also didn't help that I was walking so funny, what with the bolt cutters down my knickers and all.

But with only a minor issue of concern (as in I had no idea what Missus Moog and the Mooglets actually looked like!) we all met up and proceeded to fight our way through the gazillions of people flooding Moors Valley. At this point Mrs Moog and I made a blood oath that we wouldn't blog pre-visit again as all the hundredty people who read these pages knew where we would be and came to join in ;-)

Some may have had a lot of energy to burn off

and others looked for sun shining through in an attempt to thaw just a little!

One of the things I love about the blogoverse is the general lovlieness and generosity of the people who inhabit the part I like to be in. Lesley ever so kindly brought along gifts. A beautiful bag each for myself and Princess Curly-Wurly and a felted snail for Babyman. (note to self: listen to CK next time and take gifts. second note to self: do not admit his rightness to CK). Of course there are some who cannot take responsibility for their own actions. And those of us for whom the consequences are a brand new bag muddied and sad.

So much of our time today was spent like this

And this

We loved this dog.

Especially during his turning circle among the trees. CRASH!

The mothers mostly spent the day like this.

But I think my best and favourite image I shall take away from meeting up with my real imaginary friend Moogsmum is

Sausage Monster and Babyman storming through the day as only small boys can.


  1. Fab photies, Mrs T, although I do think that you and MM were a tad shy. Did you make a pledge to each other not to post embarrassing shots of each other?


    Sounds like a great day was had by all, and I'm so glad you weren't all bundled into the back of that white van!


  2. CK's suggestion for the final picture is 'Captain Fantastic and the Dirt Brown Cowboy'.

    Guess who has been prowling Amazon and buying himself new cds?

  3. Looks and sounds like you had a fab day out! Wish we could have been there too - I mean another three children and a totally mad mother would have fitted in fine (right???)

  4. Well I have a small boy and a Pink Princess too ya know :-p

    Seriously - glad you had such a lovely time. We went out with my mum today and I've been tellng her what a great bunch of peeps creative bloggy people are. She's a quilter of many years and tells me 'making people' are just generally nice.

    Lovely pictures - thanks for showing us. x

  5. It sounds like a great day , I hope you have removed the bolt cutters now.
