It was Nia's birthday today, so we went to Bristol Zoo for a day out. All good fun and Nia had a fine time including getting her face painted. She chose a ladybird design, which made for an arresting effect which I found faintly sinister for reasons I couldn't quite put my finger on, until I realised that it was because it made her look a bit like Darth Maul from Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace.
Fortunately we managed to get out and back on the Park & Ride bus without her getting sliced in half by any passing Jedi knights, which was nice. Those of you with long memories will recall that this is Nia's second appearance in this list.
