A Day Out At Chester Zoo

Hello my lovelies! Long time, no blog. I have no excuse whatsoever for not writing anything recently. I just blame myself and who I am as a person. *sighs*

ANYWAYZ, let's move on with the show.

Last weekend, me and the parents went "up North" to visit the Mother's elderly Aunt and on our back home, we went via Chester to visit the zoo. Did you know that it's in the top 15 of the most popular zoos in the world? And it's a whopping 125 acres big? Pretty impressive.

Sadly we didn't have time to see all the animals but we managed to visit a fair few during the 6 hours we spent there. I definitely want to go again.

Daddy Elephant and Baby Elephant were so flippin' cute playing together! LOOK HOW HAPPY THEY ARE!

This is a Scimitar-horned Oryx and they can survive without water for an incredible 9 to 10 months at a time! I wish I could do that. Sadly, these creatures are now extinct in the wild as they were hunted for their meat and hide.
Things that Chester Zoo has apart from animals, birds and reptiles:
A Boat ride.
A Monorail which takes you from one end of the zoo to the other and you can see the creatures from above!
A mini wildflower patch.

I hope you all enjoyed the photos. I guess I'll see you all again soon. And by "soon", I probably mean 21st March 2045.

15 Reasons Why I'm Excited For Autumn

Bonjour mes petits gâteaux!! How are you all doing today?

Can you believe that it's now September? I swear that it was only last week that I was seeing in 2015 at a friend's house and now it's September 4th?? WHERE HAS THE YEAR GONE?! I no likey this at all. Yet, now the 'BER' months have started, it must mean one thing

woop woop!

Can you smell it in the air? I can. I was walking to work t'other day and I took a deep breath and went "ahhh....autumn. i've missed you". Obvs to myself though because I don't want to get a reputation of being odder than I already am.

1. Getting into a toasty warm bed on a freezing cold night
2. Crunchy leaves
3. Beanie hats
4. Chunky knitted jumpers
5. Frosty mornings
6. Starbuck's red cups and their festive drinks
7. Comfort food like steamed puddings and soup
8. Season premieres of fave TV shows - who else is excited for 'Once Upon A Time'?
9. Strictly Come Dancing
10. Fireworks 
11. Duffle coats and Dr Martens boots
12. Being able to walk home from work without sweating out a swimming pool and dying of heat exhaustion
13. Halloween
14. Rosy cheeks
15. Candles especially Christmassy ones

Now that work has calmed down somewhat, hopefully I'm now back blogging on a more regular basis. Well, that's my plan anyhow.

See you soon my lovelies xx
