Journalling reads: When it was time to upgrade his mobile phone Mark decided to let me have the new white handset, while he kept my old black version. I asked him to leave it synced with my Google account. so he would get the same calendar reminders as I do, meaning I didn’t need to remind him about birthdays, anniversaries etc. I also had it set up to sync all photos taken with my Photobucket account so that if I ever lost my phone I wouldn’t lose my precious photos. By leaving it as I had it set up it meant that photos from both phones were uploaded to the same account. I thought it would mean that I got instant access to any photos he took of the kids when I didn’t happen to be with them, like when he takes them to the park during my Slimming World meetings. So I was more than a bit puzzled when he sent me a text message from work one day, telling me to go and check my Photobucket account. Mark works in a hospital and for the last few years, a duck has arrived in the founders garden, laid her eggs and then lived there with her babies until the RSPCA come and collect them once the babies have matured a bit. The staff usually put out a bowl of water once they spot the mother duck. When he spotted the babies during his lunch break, he was smart enough to know that I would be upset if he told he had seen them but not taken any pictures. He only managed to get one photo but I am so glad that he did. The combination of seeing those adorable little ducks and knowing that Mark went out of his way to do something so sweet, made my day, Sadly since he took this photo he hasn’t seen the ducks again, we hope that they have just been moved somewhere safer.

Journalling reads: When the boys were little, I wasn't really into taking photographs or scrapbooking as much. as I am now. Looking back I kind of regret how few memories I can recall about the toys they enjoyed playing with, all the things that bought them pleasure and made them smile. With you it's my last chance to remember all these little moments and memories. You have only recently started to enjoy playing with toys. Your first favourite was the cube, then there was the pink lamb and the white bunny. Then you got obsessed with wanting to touch everything, to play with as many toys as you could get your little hands on. You like stuff that makes noises, and stuff that has different textures, you like your brothers cars and the crinkly book. But you had absolutely no interest in this plastic caterpillar rattle that Nannie Donna bought you for Easter, at least not until Logan decided to take a liking to it and started playing with it. Now you want it all the time and have no problem squealing at him until he gives it back to you!

Journalling reads: After our trip to the London Aquarium we were really excited to hear that they were opening a Sealife Centre at Chessington World Of Adventures. We were already Chessington Annual Pass holders because we loved visiting it so much, so to us it was an amazing combination of our two favourite places to visit. When we first visited it was quite crowded but since we knew we could come back whenever we wanted that didn’t really matter. We loved that you had the opportunity to have a family photo taken on entry. It’s impossible for us to take a photo with all of us in it. I now have a fairly large collection of fun family photos, I suppose it helps that we got a 20% Annual Pass discount on them. The experience of the Sealife Centre was completely different to the Aquarium, you feel much closer to everything and you can see everything better. The only downside we have found is because it is so mucb smaller than the Aquarium you have to leave the pushchair outside, which can make it interesting if Logan doesn’t feel like being cooperative or we didn’t remember to bring the reins with us. I often take the boys in to visit the Aquarium while Mark is off queuing for one of the rollercoasters he loves to go on. One of the cool things is the activity trail for the kids to complete as they walk around. It’s made up of a selection of stations with questions and an activity on them relating to the information on each tank and fun facts dotted around. Some of the stations have flaps to lift,, wheels to turn or buttons to press. Both of the boys really enjoy doing this, even though they have done it so many times now they don’t even need to check the answers anymore. No visit is complete for them without a visit to the Sealife shop!

Journalling reads: The first time we visited the London Aquarium was one of those happy accidents. We had gone to London for the day and for some reason I can’t remember we ended up at the South Bank and visiting the Aquarium seemed like a good idea and it ended up being tbe highlight of our trip. It was so beautiful and peaceful in there, we couldn’t wait to go back and this ended up being the first of many enjoyable visits once we bought our Merlin Annual Passes.
