Belly Up*

Am not sick last night and sleep well so that’s a relief.

Have an excellent morning with Mum at Whipsnade. It’s freezing ๐Ÿฅถ: eight degrees and cloudy. We arrive at ten o’clock and the park is empty. Take my proper camera ๐Ÿ“ธ out for the first time since our last trip to Whipsnade in the summer when Lockdown was paused – so most of my photos are on there.

We have brilliant views of the lions ๐Ÿฆ, rhinos ๐Ÿฆ, hippos ๐Ÿฆ› and elephants ๐Ÿ˜. The camels ๐Ÿซ, yak, alpacas ๐Ÿฆ™, marabou storks, cheetahs, white rhinos ๐Ÿฆ, zebras ๐Ÿฆ“ and tigers ๐Ÿ… are on my camera.

We sit outside at a picnic ๐Ÿงบ table to eat our packed lunch: egg ๐Ÿฅš sandwiches ๐Ÿฅช and cut up carrots ๐Ÿฅ• and cucumber ๐Ÿฅ’.

Mum buys me some tiger ๐Ÿฏ, lion ๐Ÿฆ and zebra ๐Ÿฆ“ socks ๐Ÿงฆ in the shop and two Zoo pencils โœ๏ธ.

I’m Really Proud of myself for managing So Much walking. Feel so happy at Whipsnade with all my animals.

The vet phones when we get home. Fluffball is allowed out tomorrow so that’s good: he’s been moping around the house all week.

Tomorrow I have a pre-radiotherapy scan at the hospital ๐Ÿฅ and Personal Training at one o’clock.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
