Meet the Meerkats

IMG_2138So I got my uniform (yay) at least it’s not beige(!!)

  Today, I also hosted my first ‘Meet the Meerkats’, not bad for a first week. For the record, I did not: cry, puke, freeze or trip myself over. So I’m pretty pleased with myself.

It was with the fearsome five that had previously misbehaved when I was cleaning them out – by running into the stand off and refusing to go back into their enclosure. Look at those little faces though.
