Hello, on Wednesday me and my two children went to the Blue Reef Aquarium in Tynemouth .
We have been before, but it’s been a while so decided to go and they love it. It’s open from 10 am to 6 pm, £10.50 for adults and £8.25 for children under 3’s get in for free.
It’s got a variety of fish, small reef sharks, stingrays and seals. Also lizards, turtles and monkeys. They do shows too, like the deal show and monkey feeding. My favourite are the sharks I’ve always loved sharks so alwayslike to see them. My son loved the Sharks too and the turtles. My daughter started shouting Nemo and Dorey when she saw the clownfish.
If you live in or around the area I would recommend paying it a visit. It’s a good little place to visit the kids will love it.
Hello, this blog has been sat in my drafts for a while now and I was unsure if I was going to post it or not but now is the time I suppose.
Last Sunday was Fathers Day and it got me thinking about me being about what it is to be a father and about my relationship, well lack of relationship with my father. I was just a young boy when my Mother and Father got divorced. My Mam raised me pretty much on her own from then on. My father wasn’t around much after the divorce and then wasn’t around at all. I never felt close to my father and never felt like he wanted me around. He pretty much proved that when he never bothered anymore.
The thing I don’t get is how anyone can just forget about their children and have nothing to do with them?
No matter how bad things get in a marriage or relationship you should never just give up on your children aswell. I know it’s easier said than done and not everyone has things the same way in life, but if you’re man enough to make a child then you should be man enough to raise a child. I always said that before I had children that I would never be like my father and I will always be there for them. Becoming a dad was the best thing that has ever happened to me. The bond and love I have for my children is strong and I don’t think I could never not be in there lives. Me and my ex have been separated for over a year now for different reasons, but I have stayed true to what I have said about being in my children’s lives. It’s something that will never change no matter what has happened in the past or in the future.
It’s just a shame not all fathers think the same and make the effort. So for all the real Fathers out there keep up the good work.
Hello, yesterday was Mothers Day and it got me thinking about how lucky I actually am. I have a mother who raised me pretty much by herself after my parents broke up at a young age and my dad wasn’t around. She was always there and although I don’t always show it I appreciate everything she did for me growing up because it’s not easy to raise a child by yourself.
I’m truly blessed because I’m a father now and I couldn’t of asked for two better children. They’re great children and make me smile and laugh every time I’m with them. I always used to think if I had children I wanted to have a boy and a girl and I’m blessed enough to have that happen. Me and their Mother aren’t together anymore but I’m still a big part of their lives and I always will be. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Whatever the future holds the one thing I know is I’ll always be a proud father and I’ll always be there in my children’s lives.
