And a good time was had by all...Well kind of.
IM BACK !
2 days early in fact...oh man dont even get me started on it but....
Can you believe after all this time, waiting to go away and just vege out, lay still like broccoli, drink wine and generally have FUN, my husband gets sick on day 2 !
I know, i know, unfreakingbelieveable huh??! Well i kidd you not. He got sick. He is sick. We came home sunday morning instead of Monday nioght. When we got home i promptly said to him "Right, we came home because you are sick, so get to bed and be sick!"
I know its not his fault he got sick but really can you blame me for being totally bummed out? Sam was not fussed either way, he was missing the cats !
Ok so up untill Mr Sickie got sick, we were having a good time. Although Sam has declared he will "NEVER GO TO THAT BEACH AGAIN" after he had a bit of a stack in the water and sand...face first, when we were walking along the beach...poor lil dude. After the initial shock i couldnt stop laughing at him and of course took pictures of him all wet after the stack. Yeah i wasnt a popular Mummy for that. Bad Mummy, Bad.
On Saturday we drove down to Batemans Bay and a little town outside of it called Mogo and went to the Zoo. I havent been there for 12 years so i was amazed by how much bigger it was.
I am now officially in love with Otters. They make a little meow noise like a kitten..sooo gosh darn cute but they'd bite your finger clean off !
Oh and the Meercats..GOSH..they are too sweet.
The highlight of the day however was Sam feeding the Giraffe!
Everyone was so amazed that he just walked right up there, no fear, and off he went. I was a proud mama :) My lil' guy the sooky la la animal lover, just like his mum.
Ok i have to show you some Zoo photos...please dont fall asleep..
The Otters...cant you see why i love them??
Meercats! They are soo cute and so intelligent.
Sam and a Monkey in deep conversation....look the monkeys listening !
Part of the zoos White Lion Pride...breathtaking animals, they brought tears to my eyes.
This cheeky Bengal Tiger is called Rosco. He scared my socks off by roaring at me when i leaned in for this photo! Apparantly thats what he does best, he's a game player. yeah real funny Rosco.LOL.
I actually saw Rosco the week after he arrived at the zoo 12 years ago. He and his sister were seized by the RSPCA from a property not far from me. They and many other large cats were in dreadful condition. I was sooo ecstatic to see Rosco still there and so happy and healthy! His sister unfortunatley died a short time ago :(
Look at these cuddly Red Pandas, SAM and FRODO from the Lord Of The Rings movies, how cool is that!
You still with me???
Ok you want to see some beach photos now dont you????
Of course you do!
Ok on the way home from the Zoo we stopped at a place called Narrawallee where my Grandparents use to live and where i spent most of my holidays untill i was 16 and they moved away.
I took Sam down to the beach that i spent so much time on with my family, particularly my Grandad......i was a bit overcome with emotion going back there but to share it with Sam was so great and i know my Grandad was looking down on us and smiling that another generation was at "his beach". I hope it made him happy :)
Ok Ok enough, i know.
i promise thats it.
Back to reality now and to the DREADFUL TASK of sorting out this Website issue im having.
I am just itching to get it done and get my boutique OPEN !! i have so many pretties for you all! So PLEASE bear with me.
Okies i am off and i'll be popping by your blogs to say hi!
Lotsa Pink Hugs as Always,
