Wow! Dublin Zoo was so cool. Huge expanses of water everywhere make it seem like there are no animals in cages. They have elephants! Hurrah. I miss the hefalumps at London Zoo so it has been an age since I have been so close to one of my creased friends. Also it makes the Gorilla World at London Zoo look like a very small bedroom in comparison to a whole stately home. The gorillas live on a big island and look really relaxed. Here is a bit of video of what I think are some chimps just padding about a bit. The other cool thing about the zoo in Dublin was when I showed my London Zoo card and wondered if I might get a little discount, I got in free! yipee. I wonder if London Zoo is so hospitable to overseas visitors…….I will find out.
Song of the Day –Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head
I was the paint shop again this morning as I am decorating my office, which is taking days as it was painted shades of purple and orange, which are a bucket to cover up with brilliant white…we are talking coats and coats. The young man who mixed my paint ( oh I am having a bit of yellow too) mentioned that he had this song in his head…I told him about the German word ‘earworm’ for a song that gets stuck going round and round your head. He told me he has had this song in his head for at least a month and the annoying thing is that he can only remember the first line…now that is annoying. He knew the second line was something to do with red and that that it rhymed!
…but that doesn’t mean my face will soon be turning red……(i think!)
