The 5am wake up call was definitely a shock to the system, imagine having to get a nightbus as part of your commute to actually start work, I know…absolute madness! 200 more words

Merry Christmas

What a busy day!

I’ll start off by going through Christmas Eve. At around 6pm I took the children for  a walk around the local area to see the Christmas lights. 489 more words

A Moose on Morning Feed

Working with animals always comes with an element of waking up at the crack o dawn and IPR is no different. Feeding begins before sunrise, actually it finishes before sunrise which means waking up at the crack o 4am which is significantly awful; but it’s all for the monkeys and somehow isn’t quite as bad as if you’re waking up to crouch hopelessly at a desk for eight hours. 1,057 more words
