Meerkats, Cockroaches and Back to Blogging

Hello everyone, how are you all? I know I have been a little m.i.a recently and I am sorry about that. If you read my last post or if you follow me on Instagram you will know that I lost my doggy a couple of weeks ago, I really didn't feel like doing much the days following on from that. If any of you have lost a pet you will know how it feels, but I didn't plan on being gone for so long! Life just sometimes seems to get in the way.

So... I thought I would take this time to update you on what has been happening, and share a few pictures with you. Tuesday 25th was my birthday, so this week has been busier than normal - I like to stretch my birthday celebrations out over the week if I can, make the most of them! It's also been nice having a lot to do, it helped take my mind off losing Cody.

On the day of my birthday we were at the Zoo - I love the Zoo, and we always end up spending the entire day there, but this day was a little different. My mum bought me a Meerkat experience, so we actually got to go into the enclosure and feed them and give them things to play with! It was so much fun and such a great way to start the day.

The rest of the week was filled with lunches, dinners and lots of shopping...maybe too much of all three but I think that's ok when its your birthday.

On Friday Edinburgh Zoo were trialling out something new, Zoo Nights, it really was a lot of fun! It feels very relaxed and sophisticated to walk around the Zoo with a glass of champagne on a warm summer evening. And then you buy an ice-cream float and remember that you will always be a child at heart!

I also held a GIANT cockroach...something I can safely say I never thought I would do! She was actually very sweet and seemed comfortable just sitting on my hand. 

So again I am sorry for being gone a little longer than I had planned, I am clearly not keeping up with my "must be more organised" new years resolution! But before I go to bed, I want to say thank you to all of you who left me sweet and supportive comments on my last post, and everyone who send me messages. It was lovely to read them and they really went a long way to helping cheer me up. Also to everyone that sent me Happy Birthday messages on Instagram, they mean so much to me!

I'm glad to be back, I also have a LOT of your posts to catch up on so that is tomorrows plans :)

Oh, but before I go, I realise that while I have been away from blogging GFC has gone! I still don't really understand why but if you would like to follow me on Bloglovin you can do so here, or by clicking the link at the side of the page.

Good night everyone
