Oh dear that was sad to read first thing this morning, but as they say at least Lumo was not alone in the bush surrounded by predators, but with caring keepers.

RIP little Lumo.

My word Anne-Marie - I had no idea you and your mum had quite so many little eles between you Laughing that's just wonderful. Are you going to get in another visit to DSWT this year? We are really hoping to in late December.

Sad to hear Lumo passed away yesterday. I saw a picture and Lumo looked sooooo thin the poor little sweetheart.

RIP Little one.

A wonderful read, I've pre-ordered Dame Daphne's book and can't wait to read it. What an inspiring woman she is, and Pete and I will definitely be going back to the orphanage in December + tins of milk for the little eles.

Thanks for the link WS - that was lovely to read first thing.

For sure Anne-Marie - without a doubt I will be taking many photos.

We're not going until December so before we go remind me who your little eles are in case any have moved from the nursery and I'll be sure to get some photos for you. I hope we can do the private visit mid afternoon and then the late afternoon visit for foster parents

Hoping you'll be able to visit again before too long, but inclined to agree it won't be this year - you'll be a bit busy with your bump Hugs

On 9th March, we lost our precious Dida! We were so shocked and sad, even though we knew she wouldn't live to see 'old bones'. Rest in Peace and run safe and free little one!!

Sadly saw this yesterday on FB and thought you should be first Anne-Marie as Dida was one of your little eles.

Tragic news as ever when one of these poor little orphans is taken so early in life. She will be much missed by everyone.

RIP little Dida gone to the great savannah in the sky.

Good news Anne-Marie re Dame Daphne's book, it seems my first order went into the ether and the books are somewhere lost in space so Alex has sent another two, which I'm delighted arrived yesterday. Really looking forward to reading it, the other one is for a b'day present.

Glad you have finally received your book Lai. It is a wonderful, fascinating read. I'm normally a quick reader, however this is a book you just don't want to read quickly. I think I'm on to the last chapter now! Very Happy

I Agree me too - I read quickly but sometimes I have to stop myself. I think I'll take this slowly it looks lovely, I just hope it isn't too sad.

I guess it also helps having visited the orphanage too - I'm just reading the Marsh Pride which I'm loving and then I'm on to this book Very Happy .

I Agree Doogs. He looked so adorable, baby rhinos are very appealing and it is tragic to think of another one lost Sad
