During the week, James and I went on a romantic break to Cork. It was fabulous!
We were staying at a wonderful hotel in Cork city centre, the weather was beautiful, and best of all, we got to spend a whole day in an animal park looking at exotic animals!
What struck me as strange (yet fabulous) was how comfortable the animals were just to wonder around. The squirrel monkeys played tag on the fence beside where James and I were standing.
A kangaroo jumped the fence around the same time and starting playing with his friend in the grass behind us, and at one point, two parrots were sitting on a branch above our heads and we didn't even notice!
The Giraffes were great. I love giraffes, probably a result of a hand puppet that we bought James's niece Emma for her birthday last year. It was lovely to see them chilling out in a field without a care in the world!
James of course was like a child. At one stage I spotted him chasing three lemurs down a path, just to see where they were going. We spent about five hours in the park. When we got home I went to have a shower and returned to find poor James passed out on the bed.
