We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo

Or rather we went on Sunday. Luke gave me a Zoofriends membership for my birthday so Jacob and I can go whenever we want. Also it can be used at the Melbourne Zoo which will be very useful in September when we take a trip there.


From the ferry on the way there

An elephant, I'm not sure who.


A Fennec Fox


A Meercat enjoying the heat lamp

A baby hippo


An Ibex (I think)Jacob Brown, a longbeaked Corella

A Wedge Tailed Eagle


The city from the Zoo. Notice the dark clouds; stormed not long after this and we had to wait on the dock for the ferry during the thunder and lightening, luckily under cover.

My Birthday


In keeping with family tradition here's my last night of 30

We had a picnic on my birthday, it was lovely and sunny but pretty cold.

Blogging for a good cause

A friend in Malaysia, Rachel is in an international scrapbook competition and needs our support.
Basically she's one of the final few and as well as judging their entries immunity is also important. Anyway how it works is like this

So get blogging!

Expecting the return

I have just ordered myself a new mooncup apparently you need a bigger size if you have given birth or you're over 30 years how depressing is that? While my period still hasn't returned due to Jacob breastfeeding, the number of times he is feeding is getting less so it may not be long before I need it.

So because of this I have a discount code for three friends - if you want this please leave a comment.

If you're a bit dubious or squeamish please be reassured that with a bit of practice it's extremely easy to use a mooncup. It's much much cheaper than using tampons and it feels much healthier and cleaner too.

edited to add: all the discount codes were taken, please don't comment asking for one.
