Me and my husband went to the zoo 2 weeks ago and had a great time even know the weather wasnt great but hey you gotta buck up and wrap up in those conditions as my granda humprey always said hahahaha
I was super exicted to see the gorillas as they are just amazing animals, nothing beats their strength yet they are just gentle loving beings at the same time - would loved to give one a big hug :-) even if they did maul me afterwords hahahahaha
I found the hills quite tough and felt the strain on my calfs so i had my husband carry me at parts otherwise you might need a scooter that they offer as you enter the zoo.
I did enjoy the kids park too (big child) my husband wasnt best pleased with me going down the slide because i happened to get stuck half way down and my husband had to help me off which made me cheeks go bright red but there was no one around so i thought why not have a go? Hahahahaha
My trousers did happen to get wet because i didnt think the rain would of drenched the slide but ahhh chucks it was too late by the time i noticed! So be aware of that.
We went into the lions den for lunch and two fellas were working and told us the menu so we ordered. I went for the chicken goujons(spelling?) they were delious, finger lickin good. Oh dear jesus i called one of the wee fellas over because i pushed expresso and i was like "excuse me, my coffee is only coming out at like 1/4 a cup? Whats the craic with that?" wee fella bless him was like " thats expresso love there supposed to be like that" oh dear jesus did my face hit a beemer i was pure scundered but he was really friendly about it. My husband had chicken nuggets and chips which he really loved, i was teasing him because it was a kids meal. I said treat yourself love cause afterall you are paying hahahahahaha
I was sad because i couldnt get my bake painted but had a happy day. In the gift shop i purchased a lovely key ring for my keys even know ive only got 1 key. A stuffed animal toy for my mummy and got the hubby an animal mask so i didnt have to look at his mug on the way home hahahahahahaha
All in all was fantastic and somewhere i look forward to going again! It was fantastic and i really hope i can return soon, husband said that i was lucky because next time they might not let me out hahahahahahaha
