Peter Rabbit DVD giveaway

Peter Rabbit DVD giveaway

Easter’s within touching distance so that means we can finally wave goodbye to Winter and hello Spring. Not that it by any means been a long cold one down in sunny Devon but it’s nice to know that pretty soon the tourists will breathe life into our sleepy little towns. Now being British it’d only be fair to mention the weather and so to prepare your little ones for the inevitable rainy day stuck indoors it’s always handy to have an emergency DVD to watch. Now if you’re anything like me you’re a sucker for embracing the seasons – Christmas films for Christmas, Mama Mia for Summer and anything rabbit or chocolate themed for Spring.

And there’s my tedious link to the rather cute and nostalgic Peter Rabbit – `Tales of the Start of Spring’ DVD I’m offering to give away to one of my lucky readers.
