Penguins #FolksyFriday

I decided to have penguins as my theme today for this Folksy Friday because I haven`t had them on here before. I`m not quite sure why as they are so cute. We have a few on Folksy but not as many as I thought there would be. I did begin to wonder if I would find enough variety in the crafts featuring them but thankfully I did. I think most people see them as very cute, especially as they were portrayed in that film a few years ago. Can`t think of the name of it at the minute which is really annoying. I saw it at the cinema and afterwards with the grandchildren a few times too, so I should know it.
I do love childrens films, they always have such a great feel good factor and usually a message behind them too. Looking forward to half term and the chance to take the children to the cinema again.
The grandchildren came for tea yesterday, so I made a fish pie, with haddock, salmon, tuna and king prawns. I don`t usually put fresh tuna in, well frozen actually, but I didn`t have any cod. I usually use smaller prawns but didn`t have any although they preferred the larger ones anyway. All done in a hollandaise sauce and topped with mash potato. That way I could make it earlier and spend the time with them whiel it does it`s own thing in the oven.
I also added a few things to my website and working my way through removing the P&P on everything. I`ve done two sections so far. It is time consuming but I think it will be better.
I haven`t got on as fast with my new hat/scarf combi as I wasn`t happy with it and took it all out before starting again. I did a little yesterday morning and more last night. I have some mittens half done but need to get some more yarn for those as they are still thumbless.
That`s enough waffle methinks. I am making an effort to not run on too much as I could fill the page so easily with aimless ramblings. Ooops there I go again.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
Have FUN and ENJOY!!!

It`s Folksy Friday time agin`
so today we have a penguin.
Well actually we have quite a few
we`re having quite a penguin do.
Is a lot called a flock,
when we see them in a block?
Maybe they could be a swarm,
cos they don`t like the warm.
They much prefer an icy chill
I think it gives them a thrill.
They look so cute in a huddle
having one great big cuddle.
Babies are all cute and furry
their outline kind of blurry.
Adults smart in black and white
altogether a wonderful sight.
They all look so sweet
but would we want to meet,
a real one in the snow?
I really don`t know!!
