September 2nd – Days at the Zoo

1999: Mum and I had a big 10 minute cuddle until the second alarm at seven.  I turned it off and helped the ol’ girl out of bed.  We were naughty and had a chocolate caramel wafer for breakfast.  We did follow it up with a pear though so it was semi healthy!  Went to the zoo today,  with Hayley, Dan and Edon. Mum had filled my wallet up with pennies which I used to go on the rides and buy a lizard and a seal.  I would have liked the real thing but unfortunately I had to make do with plastic.   I spent some time in the buggy and had to wear my wrist strap when I got out (think mummy must have told her of my last adventure here).  I wasn’t happy with this, so I got my own back by acting like a dog on a lead and running all over the show, dragging Edon behind.  I had a lovely day.  We had packed lunch, sweets, biscuits, ice cream and pop and I fell asleep, exhausted, as we neared home.

2019:  Used to love the Zoo but the last time I went was for Dims (Now correctly known as Kim) 50th birthday at Whipsnade Zoo 4 years ago. Really should check out Africa Alive at Lowestoft as have only been there to help mum with car boot sales.

Not at work today as Well-being advisor sent me home with instructions to get GP appt but she is on leave. 4 days without medication and not good.
