I want a hippopotamus for christmas .. by sarahhorsfall

I want a hippopotamus for christmas ..

Back in Manchester, and some friends visited from York. We went for a walk to the local park - and despite it being a grey day, we had some fun and giggles. This is Ruby, in the wooden steam train engine! :o)

The title? I've had this song stuck in my head all week since Chris Evans played it on his breakfast show a couple of times .. I spent the afternoon teaching it to my friends' two daughters, and by the time they were getting in to the car to head back to York, they were singing it over and over again .. I wonder how many times they sang it on the 2 hour drive back home!


I love the little santa hat on the 365 logo :o)
a great moment captured sarah ....don't be afraid of using fill in flash when the background is quite bright sarah...a fill in flash will light up the little girls face even more ...

I too like the little santa hat :)

Ruby looks like a lot of fun - lovely shot!
I saw your comment, on Nettie's wool shot, about knitting gloves to go with the hat. Did it turn up again, then?

@phil_howcroft Thanks for the tip, Phil - I so rarely think to use the flash

@dulciknit No, it didn't turn up, so I bought more wool and made another one! lol
