Normally I make a point of writing my “5 Happy Things” post before the month is out. But, due to a prolonged blogging break, it’s a little late this month. Never the less, June was a fantastic month and here are five things that really were the cherry on top;
One of my favourite days out growing up was a trip to the zoo. In fact, who am I kidding, I still love a trip to the zoo!
