After some thought, I’ve decided to bring back Fabulous Fridays. For those who are new here, Fabulous Fridays is where I talk about anything fun, cute or frivolous – whether it is a favourite quote, a new blog or book I’ve discovered, products I can’t live without or just some photos from my travels (saying that makes me sound like the fabled Gulliver). My main aim is to share something short and light-hearted before the weekend and then get down to the more serious stuff on some other day of the week; and I will end each post with my favourite song for that particular week – the one which I sing while I’m driving or when no one else can hear me. How does that sound?
I’ve been feeling rather uninspired this week. I desperately need to go out and take photos. It’s quite amazing what a balm to my soul photography is. Digging through my archives I came across these photos that I took last summer.
I used to tell my son that zebras are ponies in pyjamas. He doesn’t believe that anymore, of course. But that doesn’t stop me from thinking that they are absolutely cute and huggable.
I hate it when I watch wildlife documentaries and see them hunted down by lions or ambushed by crocodiles. That’s the sad reality of the food chain in the natural world though and, notwithstanding my mixed feelings about zoos, it’s nice to know that these particular zebras are safe from any lurking prey.
I hope they have made you smile.
