Today was my friend's birthday to celebrate her sixth decade. As she is chairwoman of the Zoo, we had a special room for the reception and lunch. There were all the friends and work mates together, all getting along like a house on fire.. marvellous food, lovely drinks and just everything was perfect.
Then after lunch we were escorted around the zoo. Despite the wind and the pouring rain, I can honestly say it was the best Sunday afternoon we have had in a long time. Whilst I do not like seeing creatures in cages, this was all very carefully designed and their main project is saving animals from extinction, so it is a zoo with a difference.
After we had been battered around a bit, and seen many animals all happily minding their own business, we returned to the room, where Tea was waiting..
Sitting down to eat cakes or savouries,we had a projected film of my friend's life and achievements and then speeches, and then it was time to return to our furry family.
We were a bit worried as we had been away for over 4 hours, in fact it was close to 7, but the marvellous little ones, did not let us down and were still clean.. although they did make a mad rush for the door outside!!
I see its almost another week since I last blogged, and although I do have a lot of thoughts, not many have got as far as a blog... so this little snippet will have to do until I get bolder again... and start pouring out all out again, but the moment is not here yet... so thanks for reading, have a good week, and lots of love and caring shared**
