Mum will wake Abie this morning and tell her they are off on an adventure, and what an adventure it will be.

They will start their day at 10am as VIP guests at Dublin Zoo, followed by lunch in the Meerkat Restaurant (Abie has never been to the Zoo before nor any other sort of outing).

 

 

Then it’s off to the 4 star Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire, who are kindly putting up Abie, her Mum and her care nurse free of charge for the weekend.

After check-in and some R&R, Abie and the gang are off to Restaurant Milano for dinner, where the chef will teach Abie how to make her own authentic Italian Pizza for dinner.
