Without a doubt, the highlight of our trip from Jett's perspective would have been our trip to the zoo. For the first time in four days and despite his ongoing illness, Jett actually enjoyed himself and he was happy to run around and check stuff out. He was amazed by most of the animals and pleased to be big enough to see into some of the enclosures without being lifted up. The meercats and giraffes were his favourite I think although he was impressed by the birdshow for about five minutes. (btw I know his trousers are a little small - we have new ones now)
In other news, I have finally started my real role at work - assembly - so for each shot I put together all the stuff (props, characters, backgrounds etc) for the animators (who start work next monday) to work on. There's about 100 shots per episode. I don't mind it however I must admit I preferred drawing stuff! My aim is to use my programming skills to automate as much of my job as possible thus freeing me up to do more creative stuff!
