After over a year of ‘Lockdown’, this is Mei-An’s second birthday celebration spent during the Covid19 pandemic – although today – as the restrictions have been relaxed, she was able to visit a local petting farm! These wonderful places serve a vitally impotent function of introducing animals to city children in a manner that encourages both kindness and respect!
These animals are treated as ‘living-beings’ in their own right that are lucky enough not to be in the terrible chain of the brutally mechanised meat industry! As usual, by family in Torquay (Devon) sent an excellent birthday cards (one with a small cake inside);
– a balloon and lots of presents – including books on science, advance ipad art creation, headphones (with mic), personalised jewellery, a stylus and an assortment of large soft-toys! We have just lit the nine candles on her birthday cake and sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to her!
