Hello there! Many, many "Thanks" for your comments on my previous post. I could regale many stories about my education and school teachers. Some stories are quite hilarious and probably you wouldn't believe that they were true! I may well feature some more in later posts - once I'm up to date with the things that we got up to at Half Term! Seems such a long time ago now - so I'd better get a wiggle on.
KP had her last few exams today - French, Chemistry and Geography. She's off on a school trip tomorrow - she'll be away the whole weekend - the place will be quiet without her for sure.
Anyhow, moveing swiftly back to Half Term - we visited Monkey World and KP's cousins, their mum and the OH's aunt came too.
The chimpanzee about is not eating an ostrich egg - it's actually some ice as the weather was so hot. It's hard to remember now that it was only a few weeks ago. The weather has been pretty nasty the last few days - lots of rain. I think it promises better weather over the weekend, let's hope so.
This chimpanzee had its arm amputated - after she had been attacked by her own mother. They were both working in a circus somewhere abroad and the baby chimp was rescued and brought back to this country. It was amazing to see how agile she was the one arm.
KP and her cousins.
As it was a warm day most of the inhabitants were asleep and in reality I think the kids preferred the play areas. We had a grand old picnic and ice creams all round.
The kids did a video using KP's phone and set it to music - using various apps. Kids and technology - what they did was quite impressive.
Little W told to do Gangnam Style, which he was happy to oblige.
This is all part of their video. I followed behind taking a few shots with my camera.
Cousins H and E - the eldest two came back home with us in our car and their mum took W back home as he had sleepover planned. We took the dogs for a walk before heading to the pub with H and E's mum and dad.
A great day out.
Until next time,
