Journalling reads: There are really only so many times that I can say the same thing over and over again, before even I am sick of the sound of my own voice saying it. In this house the most common of those phrases is “TIDY YOUR ROOM!!”. It’s a long standing battle I nag, you go up to your room, you play/watch tv and do everything except actually tidy up. I come up to check on you and end up telling you off. It usually ends with at least one of us in tears. Well I got so sick of this that I decided to just do it one day while you were at school. When you got home you were thrilled and thanked me. Or at least you did at first, you changed your mind once you realised, that those 2 huge black sacks of rubbish had some toys in that you didn’t want thrown away! Hopefully this taught you a valuable lesson like why you should tidy up your own bedroom and decide what is rubbish!

Journalling reads: Lukas loves it when he gets to make cakes and then cover them in rainbow sprinkles.The last time that we did this you were watching with interest from your baby walker. I thought you might like like to join in, so I poured some into a little container and put them on your tray. You had no interest in decorating the cakes but you really enjoyed making a mess and licking them off your fingers!

Journalling reads: You three had a great time playing on the climbing frame and slide. Lukas liked hanging like a monkey from the bars best. Logan seemed to be a little bit scared to let go of Daddy’s hands and go down the slide, but he was more willing once he saw Lukas at the bottom to catch him. I love watching the three of you playing together, it’s too cute for words!

Journalling reads: When Lukas was younger, we took him to see Bobby Roberts Super Circus. We had never been to a circus before and we were excited at least until they said no photographs were allowed. It’s kind of dificult to capture the memory of a first trip to the circus, without photographs. During the intermission they offered the chance to ride the ponies or have a photograph taken with their elephant, Anne. We let Lukas pick which he wanted to do and he chose the ponies, but for days afterwards we all remarked about how very sad she had looked. She has been a part of the circus since she was a baby. Since then a lot of things have changed, a tabloid newspaper filmed her groom, “battering, kicking and stabbing her with a pitchfork. The RSPCA stepped in and she has now been rehomed to Longleat Safari Park. She is receiving all the care and attention that she requires for her severe arthritis and dry skin. It makes me happy to know that at 57 years old, she is now finally allowed to relax and just live out her life in peace. April 2011.

Journalling reads: Despite all of our fears and doubts, they were quickly able to reassure us that you were exactly where you were supposed to be, complete with a tiny little heartbeat. It was very reassuring to know that at least for now you were perfectly ok. They adjusted the dates but since when has that ever been anything new for us. Your new due date is the 27th August but I very much doubt that will end up being your birthday.
