“I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet, they sent me a…“
One of my very favourite places to visit is the zoo. Wellington zoo is particularly special – as when Barnaby and I first started dating it was one of the places we would visit as often as possible (I guess this is what happens when you live in the CBD and aren’t allowed pets!)
We visited the zoo a fair while ago now, I had just completely forgotten about the photos! I got made up in one of my very favourites tops – this cat sleeved little number from Pepa Loves which got plenty of young children pointing and exclaiming. We are pretty freakin’ obsessed with meerkats in our household, so it was an especially mesmerising moment when they came right up to the glass and looked right at us. Oh, and when a woman asked me if they were possums, my answer was “they’re like Timon in the Lion King!” & I thought that was pretty neat. The very best bit, though, was when one of the meerkats starting planking – just take a look at the last photo!
