We’re Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo
We went to the Zoo today, me and Vanessa and six kids between us. I think London Zoo is absolutely fantastic, although Charlie (5) said that he didn’t like all the “animal business” and wanted to go on the bouncy castle. I got round that one by telling him that it was ticket only and we didn’t have any. We saw a black mamba (one bite has enough poison in it to kill forty people) it is the most amazing snake and so lively, it was following people as they moved round the cage, he had everyone’s number. We also liked the hornbills loads, prehistoric and knowing. But the best in show were the otters, a rambling, cavorting bunch of West Side Storyers who stole our hearts and are not giving them back.
