here is one of my favourites, the white tiger, beautiful!! if only he were tame enough to go and cuddle!!
i never tire of walking round the zoo, especially when the weather has been as lovely as it has been today. our next outing to the zoo will probably be halloween, we went last year too and it was fun going on the spooky train ride as the staff dress up in halloween costumes and jump out on the public, great fun but only for those without a nervous disposition!!!

my two girls have got back into the morning routine as they went back to school last week, melissa my little one has started junior school now, and although on her first morning she was a little apprehensive it was me who shed the tears once she'd waved me goodbye, it had been brewing all morning but i had to stay positive and calm for her sake... until she'd gone into school that is.
kirsty my middle girl is enjoying being back at school, she's gone into year nine, and last year she was getting bullied a bit by a certain child, but thankfully that child has left to move to another school now, which we were all very pleased to hear, and kirsty has seemed a much happier girl now and she's actually enjoying going to school, which is so good to hear from a parents point of view.
as for me im just plodding along as i always do, work and kids and work and kids lol!! i cant moan really ive had a few nights out over the holidays, and things could be worse, they could also be alot better but i wont go into that at this moment. mum knows what i mean though!!
well ive the day off work today so i best get on and do some well needed housework!

1; dont tell the kids there's icecream in the freezer for later as you can bet your money on it suddenly there not hungry for dinner anymore.
2; dont tell the kids not to look in a certain cupboard, especially near xmas, as you can be sure there inquisitive nature will lead them there.
3; dont tell the kids " dont mention i said that" as you can be sure at some point when you least expect it, they'll blurt it right out.
4; dont tell the kids to stop slamming the door, as before you've said it they've done it again.
5; dont tell the kids you've an extra bit of money left over this week, as they'll suddenly remember all the things they dont really need.
6; dont tell the kids that your planning to have a night out, as you can be sure one of them will come down with a fever that day.
7; dont tell the kids you'll get the paddling pool out tommorow cos you just know there will be a torrential downpour for the next few days.
8; dont tell the kids you really need a lie in tommorow as they will be up with the lark.
im sure these eight things will touch a nerve with all the mums or dads out there as they are all from my own experiences.
now i have to think of 5 more people to tag uummmm...............well im not sure who to tag so i'll add the last 5 people who have left a comment, hope you all dont mind!....I'll have to leave Shaz out though as that wouldn't be fair!
Mum (when you start doing tags again)
and because I would like to read a bear's take on this....
If you've done it before I apologise but my computer is on go slow (I'm sure all those games the kids download are slowing it up) and haven't visited all your blogs for a few days.
