Rabbits in the sky

I found a rabbit in the sky, whilst out walking to Hathersage. I was quite excited about this as it reminded me of the film Amelie, which is one of my all time favourite films. (OK, its also unashamedly very dreamy and romantic, but thats not the reason I'm mentioning it)
When Amelie is a small girl she is given an instant camera, and one of the pictures she takes is a rabbit in the sky, and its true they do exist... as I have photographic evidence (above)
If you have never seen this film, it is simply beautiful. Anybody who day dreams in the clouds should definitely see it. Heres what is says on the box - "Amelie Poulain has led a sheltered life - educated at home by over-protective parents, she retreats into a fantasy world of her own. When she finally leaves home and finds work as a waitress in a Parisian cafe, life is pretty uneventful until a chain of extraordinary events leads her to the discovery of a tin box containing a schoolboy's long forgotten memories. It is then that Amelie discovers her true vocation in life - helping others find love and happiness - which she sets about in her own unique and magical way. When Amelie falls in love herself, she realises that making neat solutions is not as easy as it seems... "
For someone who is intrigued the lure of ringing phone booths... you will particularly like Amelie's creative use of public telephones... as she leaves clues for her mystery to be solved.
Ahhh... I love Audrey Tautou
