Jodie chose well. It was a bit too warm for the zoo. Today is a much better day for it!
and Jodie changed the blog design! love it!! :)
Good alternative idea...the animals would have only been hiding in the shade anyway. Can we see the handbag?! Happy LSL, I am sure you will enjoy the time off to be creative and that we will enjoy being along for the ride.
awesome! wish i could celebrate it with you. ;p
Good choice....it was even hot at the pool in the shade! Swimming's over...YEAH!!!
imagine the zoo poo stink on a forty degree day. Now you can go on a cooler day with a cool bag. Pictures of bag? Happy long service
Bag making is a very good option to a smelly super hot zoo. Imagine the butterfly cage on a hot day! Cherrie
feel sorry for the animals. they didn't get to make handbags *and* had to sit in a bajillion degrees.
You have too much free time on your hands.......booyah!
When the weather is a bit cooler you MUST go and see the new baby elephant, Jod; it's SOOOOOOO cute! Don't blame you for staying home in this heat when you can do all that other stuff tomorrow ... or the next day... or the next day... etc etc etc. Continue having fun, you lucky duck.
It really is the only way to deal with this heat! I'm so glad today has brought a cool change. :-)
Terrific! Love the props to tell the story! Jealous of the LSL, enjoy!
Isn't it great that you can do what you want, when you want. You could get very used to it.
The post is great, but the labels stole the show! Have fun!
BELIEVE ME. I KNOW ABOUT THESE THINGS.The very best time to be at Melbourne Zoo, is on a 23 degree week day before 11am. Overcast is a bonus. I'll meet you at the main entrance coffee van and we can toast the Meerkats.
Your post labels always crack me up!
Not the end.... the very beginning! How exciting that your LSL has started. I know you'll accomplish a lot of amazing things. Go!
Love the new blog look! Have been with 'proper' internet for a few days, so only just noticed! V. cute! As is that delightful colouring in on your handbag. heehee
That's the great thing about LSL. Do what you want, when you want.Enjoy!
As it should be. ;-D
You always make me laugh!
The second best thing to do on a first day of leave. Every girl needs air conditioning and a new handbag!
Sounds like a great start to your vacation. Must be so exiting to have your whole vacation in front of you.
YAY!!! freedom to do or not do as you wish, priceless!! even a cartoonist! love the blog update!
I love a good short story :)
Yep toooooo hot for the zoo. Your thermometer reminded me of something else ............ but then it might just be my warped brain.
You are my favorite.
Glad I wasn't the only one who had her doubts about your thermometer! ;)
I would have whimpered at the V Hot stage :)Cool handbag!
Sounds like the right decision after all one can never have too many bags :)
Oh, I'm so excited about enjoying your long service leave! :) and yes, please show the handbag
As an added bonus, now you have a new bag to take all your stuff in to the zoo when this crazy hot spell passes!
Lovely Jodie! Have fun at the zoo when you do go, and i love your new look!
Yay for Long Service Leave! I'm not sure what that is, but it sounds delightful. Also, the zoo here is perfectly chilly. Just sayin'. And I'm not even gonna tell you what I thought that drawing of a thermometer was.
Sounds good to me! Love the new blog layout too!
