A well earned rest and a rare break with a trip to the zoo. I went straight into the Tropical House and Desert House for an hour. I love the Reptile Tropics and think I could stay in there all day. The birds free fly around the huge glasshouse and there are plenty of reptiles too.
I can't believe it's been two weeks today since my husbands operation. I thought he put it very well...it feels like we have lived a month in just one week.
Everything went very well and it was such a relief to get him home. The NHS is buckling under the pressure of cutbacks by our greedy, arrogant and short-sighted politicians.
I could see these signs, but all the staff were wonderful and we have been so lucky, a lot of patients on that ward were very ill indeed.
Love is in the air
A tropical take-away
All loved up in the Desert Glasshouse
And lastly my favourite set of photos. It was so funny watching this pair.
Look at me, look at me..!
Am I impressed?
No, I don't think I am!
Life still doesn't feel like it's back to normal as recovery will take many more weeks, hubby has good and not so good days and I feel exhausted.
However spring is here, the clocks go forward and evenings will be brighter. Tourists will soon be here for the Easter holidays and there are signs of activity from shopkeepers, tour companies and the council putting the beach huts back along the seafronts.
Thank you all for your support and good wishes, it really does help.
Until next time
