The people who live at Number 12 have become really good friends, so much so that we've often said if ever either of us decide to move house, we'd have to find somewhere that has two, neighbouring houses for sale because we like living next door to each other so much.
Each Christmas we exchange gifts with them and their two gorgeous daughters...and this year they gave MONT and me a day with them, at Werribee Open Range Zoo.
That's where we all went yesterday afternoon. Apart from the beautiful animals, they also have a special entertainment program at this time of year...yesterday it was "Rhythm of Africa" with the ASANTI DANCE THEATRE...and it was fantastic!
There was of course lots of wonderful animals, like Tony.
Tony's a mature gent who likes to keep to himself a bit, but sadly, he also has an allergy to what giraffe's generally like to eat, so he has to have injections and a daily brush down to keep him functioning, well, like giraffe's function.
There are zebra's roaming the plains....
