Smiley Gem is back!

Hello! I am back now and i am feeling pretty happy, Well i have decided to not to let things that i can't control get me down and to start living my life in all its fullness! Yeppie!! So what has been happening lately?! Well since July ( my last post) I've been pretty busy what with going to Summer camp with the young people from church and then going away for a few days with the lovely Craig :-) working hard with my jobs - Christians Against Poverty and My salvation Army job. I've popped down to London a few times to see Craig and my lovely Friends the Pearson's. Craig has been here a few times also which has been really nice too. I'm sure that i have forgot ton to tell you about lots of important stuff but I'm kinda starting a fresh with this blog so its ok!

I was having a chat with my gorgeous and godly man last night on the phone and we were talking about some pretty important things like the Future etc and then we got on to talking about our relationships with God and things and I was saying to Craig that i would really like to feel God presence really close to me right now and just have one of those moments when you just feel the love of God in a real tangible way. Do you know what I mean? But I want it to be just me and God in my quiet time not in a big Sunday meeting or with lots of other people around just me and God so i can feel his intimacy. I guess I'm thirsty for God. What I'm getting at the moment isn't satisfying me. I just wanna be closer to God, I wanna learn more about him, I wanna be more like him. I guess that I need to make more time for this, more time for God to be able to speak to me and for me to be able to speak to him.

And there's more!!!

Craig got to meet my church family on Sunday which was lovely and probably a little scary too! Craig felt very welcome by everyone which is great! On Sunday night we went to to my other church were again Craig felt welcome and we both had fun and spent time with God.

Monday i had to work so Craig was left at home with my gorgeous dad who took him on a 3 hour walk around the fields of St Helens! ( exciting!) On Monday night we were invited out for tea to Cheryl and Gary Hayes house ( some lovely friends form the boiler room) Craig and Gary really hit it off when they first met at the boiler room ages ago. they both have a deep interest in theology. It was really lovely to chill out with Gary and Cheryl and spend time getting to know them better. It was also lovely to meet their family. It was really late when we left at 12.00am so Craig drove home as i was mega tired! I have never had a boyfriend who can drive before but i loved the fact that someone could chauffeur me around for a change! I think Craig enjoyed driving too as he doesn't get much chance at home.

On Tuesday we had a big lie in and watched a bit of super market sweep and then had planned to go to Tesco's and get a picnic and go to Croxteth Park to see the farm but as we got to tesco's i didn't feel very well at all and we ended up sat in Tesco's car park for an hour and 20 mins while i cried and waited for the tablets i had took to start working ( the didn't do any good!) I was in really bad pain and to make me feel better Craig read Harry potter to me! Sounds funny but it did help me to keep my mind off the pain. In the end we ended up going home to get a hot water bottle and i had a sleep. When i woke up i was feeling much much better! As it was Baileys birthday and Sam was up for the week we decided to go on a double date and go out for tea and go to the pics. We went to Frank and Bennys which i always call ben and jerrys by accident! And then we went to see hairspray. You must go and see this film it is so so good!!! i want to be in a musical so bad!!
It was lovely again to spend time with our friends and to get to know each other a bit better. I am so happy that Bailey in=s happy and has found Sam - he seems really nice and a good influence.

This led to yet another late night!!! Then it was Wednesday and we finally got to the farm at croxteth park and had a lovely ice cream ( mint feasts are back!!!) Then we went over to Crosby beach to look at the big men but when we got there Craig didn't feel too good so we but our seats back and sat in the car on the front and i read Harry potter to Craig for 2 hours! It was so romantic! Then we had been invited round to the pearsons house for tea ( very very special friends of mine and I'm sure Craig loves them too!) It was lovely to spend time with them and play with Katie - she is gorgeous!! We watched this great new programme called heros and then Will told us all about his game called torn city and how he is married to man on it so he could buy a house and get a better faction?! sounded very intense! I am really glad that my friends like Craig! It was another late night.

Then Wednesday finally came and it was time for Craig to pack his case and spend the last few hours with each other. We lounged around in our pj's all morning and then get ready and had bacon butties and cake for lunch! Then we decided to do a little photo shoot using my trampoline as a prop - impressive don't you think?!

I managed to get Craig to the station well on time which is a rarity! And then craig got on the train and choo choo'd out of lime street leaving me with tears in my eyes! I know i am soft but i love him!

Every time me and Craig spend more time together we become closer and closer, its so lovely. I don't know whats going on but when i look in to his blue eyes i get a funny feeling in my heart! Its defiantly love. Craig treats me with so much respect and love, he is so genuine. I love everything about him.

Me and Craig Always and forever, Ba ba ba ba ba..........

Hello! As you may of guessed Craig came to stay at my house for a while last week and we got to see each other for 7 days!!!! That is a long time in our books! It was all very fun and very lovely.

On Thursday i got the train down to the City paved with Gold! Then on Friday i went out for lunch with Craig's sister Fiona. On Friday night we went to the essentials graduation which was really cool. I got to see some old friends and make some new ones! Electralyte were on and they were flipping great! Then it was back off to Craig's house after being interrogated about CAP by the man who gave us a lift home! Then on Saturday we got absolutely soaked down to our undies going to catch the train back to my house, so much so that i had to change my top on the train! It was so lovely to get the train back to Liverpool together and not have to do the whole nasty goodbye thing. It was just so loely cuddle up together even if Harry Potter joined us for the journey! When we arrived back in Liverpool the fun didn't stop! We had to get the bus over to the hall and pick my car up and then drive back over to my house. It had stopped raining at this point, thank god!!! We both looked an absolute state , but it doesn't matter when your in love! He he!

Can you spot the Gem?

CAP Summer Holiday continued.......

At the Gala dinner we all got dressed up in our nice clothes and the menu was

  • Smoked salmon with salad
  • carrot and coriander soup
  • lemon sorbet ( to cleanse the pallet!)
  • Chicken breast in honey and mustard sauce with roasted parsnip, boiled potatoes, carrots, and cauliflower.
  • Marbled chocolate pyramid filled with chocolate mouse and raspberry sauce.
  • Coffee and mints

Then it was the CAPtatsic awards for people in the charity who had excelled in a certain area. Guess what?!..................

I won an award! It was for being dedicated to getting new life changers and for my effort in fund raising!!! wow! I felt so special had to go out to the front of the room and receive it and have my picture taken with John Kirkby ( CAPS founder!) I thought they had read the wrong name out! Boy did i feel special!
After the awards we had live music and danced the night away! It was such a great time! my legs are still hurting though!
During my stay i also went horse riding! for the first time and i was so so happy because i didn't have to go on the biggest horse! This may sound daft to you readers but as many of my close friends will know my weight has always been an issue to me since i can remember. This year i have lost almost 3 stone which is such a big achievement for me and believe me i am really feeling proud of myself. I have always wanted to go horse riding but always been worried about being too heavy and the stables not having a horse that i would be able to hold me. So not to have to go on the horse that will take the heaviest person felt so good! In fact my horse was underweight! The funniest part was trying to get off my horse! For want of a better expression i couldn't get my leg over his back! and then as I'm hanging off the poor animal i went in to a fit of giggles! fun fun fun!

So saving the most important stuff till last. The most important thing for me at conference is to rest and relax in the presence of God. I have a very busy life and as previous posts tell i find it hard to give god the time he rightful deserves. I was just able to worship him in total freedom through just taking time to look at his beautiful creation, listening to his word, through singing his praise, chatting to others about him, and resting. In one of the session i had a picture in my head of me and Jesus having fun, Jesus was giving me a piggyback and we were spinning around having so much fun. I am sure that they was god telling me that he is a fun God he wants to share in my joy as well as my sorrow. He wants to laugh with me and and just enjoy my company. That things don't always have to be so serious, God is the God of Joy and he wants to share in all the fun times of my life, all the blessings that he gives me that make my heart full of his joy. I am his precious daughter and as my dad he wants to share in my life in an intimate way. I think of when i was a little girl all the fun i had with my dad, the rough and tumble we used to get up to and the tickle fights, just having fun and feeling loved and safe in his company. My heavenly father wants to share in all of this fun too.

So all in all i just Thank god for his love for me and his constant encouragement and blessing in my life.

CAP Summer Holiday

Every year i go away with CAP for our annual conference called Closer - Closer to God, Closer to each other, and closer to the Vision.

This year we went to a place near Dorchester called Chantmarle. Chantmarle is a christian retreat centre. The staff at Chantmarle are really good to CAP and are big supporters of the work of CAP. This was my 2nd year of going on conference and again it was really really good. On the site there is a really old and beautiful manor house (only the staff who had worked for CAP longer than 5 years got to stay in here, i stayed in a bungalow which was also very lovely.)

The Manor House-

On the Thursday night we had a gala dinner ( which was very posh!) In the afternoon all the girls pampered themselves in this very posh bathroom. We gave each other foot spa's, massages, facials, manicures etc - Being a typical girly girl i loved this! I so wanted to get in that bath and eat a flake!
The gardens were really lovely also, however it did rain lots so i didn't really get a big chance to look around but form the pics you can see that it was gorgeous.There was a lovely swimming pool too as you can see above. i love swimming but hardly ever get a chance to go, so this was a treat again.

( will have to do another post to get the pics right)

Hello! As you will be aware i am travelling on the train alot more than i used to, making trips back and forth to London. I am trying go use this time to read and this weekend i took the the book ' The life you've always wanted' by J Ortberg. This book is about getting to grips with spiritual disciplines and the impact that they have on our lives. Its a great book so far, i am only up to chapter 5 but its really opening my eyes to what spiritual disciplines really are.
Before reading this book i would of said that spiritual disciplines are making sure you read your bible, making sure that you pray and give God the time that he warrants in your life, being able to quote bible verses in a discussion and that if i practice all of these things that i will be in Gods good books. How wrong was i! J Ortberg says that it is to grow in love for God and people and any activity that can help me gain power to live a life as Jesus taught and modelled it.
Quite different to my thoughts on the subject. I don't think that he is saying that we shouldn't pray and read our bibles more that we shouldn't get hung up on these things if we don't manage to fit them in to our day because we are too busy. I think that these things are really really important but just because we don't read our bible every day or we don't spend the whole day in prayer means that we are less mature spiritual than someone who does.
this makes me feel so much better about my spiritual life.
I have been trying to stay awake at night so that i can pray and read my bible but have been falling asleep mid chapter or trying to string some jumbled prayer together and then feeling really bad about it in the morning. The next bit that i have typed out below really helped me to See things a little more clearly on this topic
This is after a part on us growing in love for God and love for others.
"One thing that i have discovered when i spent the day trying to live in a love fashion is that love requires an enormous amount of energy. And i was just too tired to give it. So i realized that - as unspiritual as it sounds - if i was serious about becoming a more loving person, i was going to have to get more sleep!
I have discovered that i have a very hard time thinking and feeling and acting like Jesus when i lack sleep."
The bible has loads to say about sleep, in fact its actually an act of trust to fall asleep. I have never thought of it like that! Sleep is also a gift form God! wow!
After this i am going to try and get more sleep ( spiritual discipline) so that i can develop my love for Jesus and others! God is so cool!
- this may not make much sense to you - its just my jumbled thoughts!

I miss my time with you

Don't worry this isn't a soppy post about how much i miss Craig ( But if you are interested i do miss him lots!)

I have been so so busy this year so far, if i am not doing stuff for CAP after my normal working hours I'm busy doing stuff for church and it seems that whilst i have been so so busy doing stuff for God I've been neglecting him in quite a major way. I am not saying that i haven't been praying or reading my bible but i haven't been paying him the attention that i feel he deserves. I've got my self bogged down with so much rubbish recently and I've took my eyes off Jesus in order to help others which i feel sad about. The God news is, is that i am getting rid of all this rubbish and thinking about the concept of your eyes and ears being gates to your heart and what you put in to them effects your heart.

On Sunday night God really spoke to me, he popped the following words in to my head. I don't think i need to explain them as they speak for themselves particularly in my life right now.

i miss my time with you those moments together
i need to be with you each day
and it hurts me when you say
you're too busy
busy trying to serve me
but how can you serve me when your spirit's empty
there's a longing in my heart
wanting more than just a part of you
it's true
i miss my time with you.

Thankyou for speaking to me about my life at the moment, thankyou for reminding me that you are the fuel that i need to be using, that i need to stop relying on my own strength to do your work and that i need to be totally in tune with you. Help me make decisions in my life lord of where i need to cut down. I want to be totally on fire and healthy to do your work lord Jesus not tired and bogged down all the time. lord help me to be strong. Thankyou for loving and saving me Jesus. I am totally lost without you. help me to take the time out of my day to catch up with you and give yo the time that you deserve. I love you dad.
Your loving daughter.

Who says that I am blonde?!

This weekend i went to London to see Craig and to meet his family ( very scary!)
I also met some of his friends from Uni. Now we had met up with Craig's friend Richard and his wife to be ( I can't spell that F word!) and were looking round the shops in Croydon. Romona ( Richards F) Was looking for some shoes to go with her wedding dress, we were looking in Aldo and i happened to see this really big new looking shoe on the floor. I picked it up and said to Craig and Richard " Wow! Look at the size of this shoe!" The next thing who i thought was a shop assistant asked me if i wanted the other one, this man turned out to be the owner of the shoe and was currently trying some other shoes to buy! Oh my word!!! I near dies trying not to laugh and go like a beetroot! I am lucky though as i think Craig understands my blondness and i also think he is a little blonde too!! He he! I never fail!!!!!

On Saturday a number of my friends and friends friends went to Delamere Forest to tackle to 'Go APE' High wires course including the longest zip line in the country and many many more scary and high obstacles.

The reason for doing this was to raise money for the charity that i work as a centre manager for, Christians Against Poverty(to find out more got to
We had great fun! It was lovely to spend time with old and new friends.

Its like riding a bike?!?!

As you will of read form my previous post, for the last 5 months i have been going to slimming world and one of the things they want you to introduce is body magic - Which is basically exercise.

When i was a little girl i used to love riding my bike down to the park near to our house and it always seemed so effortless from getting on to the bike to going full speed with the air blowing in your face and feeling free. It was such a joy to ride my back, totally pain free. I hold on to these memories..............

Tonight i thought i would be super good and get Wesleys new bike out and have a litttle ride, remembering it was quite low impact sport and what a lovely evening it has been so as a bonus i would also enjoy nature etc as i was on my little trip to the park.

Oh how wrong i was!

First of all i couldn't mount the bike (so to speak!) Then (something i never thought could ever happen to me) my bum hurt, really bad. I know i haven't got a bony bottom but oh my word it hurt! Then i realised that it was flipping hard work on your legs! Then i realised that the bike had gears and that i was in 6Th gear for the whole bike ride! So i managed to get down to the park, through the park but at the thought of trying to ride back up our road which is on a hill i decided to walk!

The Jolly Miller public house of prayer?!

I wanted to blog about this the last time it happened but i didn't get around to it. every now and then i met up with my friend and work colleague Claire wilner who is the centre Manager at The Frontline CAP centre in Liverpool. we meet up to go over our publicity within the area and see how we are getting on for clients and just to encourage each other really. Claire and I get on really well so its lovely to spend time together catching up and stuff. At the end of each get together we always pray. The first time we did this in the pub at lunch time ( so you can imagine it was packed!) For some reason it felt a little naughty! I guess i was worried what others may think. I do that all too often, worry about what other people think. I really need to address that characteristic in my life as it makes my life a misery sometimes.

Anyway back to the point!

Today when we prayed it just felt really natural! I guess prayer should be natural well just as natural as talking to your best friend as that's what God is to me.I was thinking that God is all around us and we can talk to him when we are doing anything so why not in the middle of a pub?!

Proud not to be a size zero

I am so saddened by this picture i found on facebook of a teenage model whose starved herself to death. Now i know that some of these pictures are airbrushed but even so why do people in marketing think this sells? Do men really find women who look like this attractive?

This makes me feel so sad.

I am very very happy and proud!

Today I have finally reached a point in my slimming when i have lost 2 stone and 1lb and i have lost 10% of my body weight! Yeppie! I am so proud of myself.
I was reading a prayer journal from January and i had written that i was joining slimming world but i wasn't in the frame of mind for slimming and i knew that it was going to be a waste of money and that i would always be fat and that i wouldn't be able to do it. Bi-jingo! I have proved myself wrong! Yeppie! I am feeling very very proud of myself. Well done Gemma Lou!

A pick me up!

Great news!

2 people that i have been really praying hard for attended the new Alpha course at our church last night and really enjoyed it! Come on God!!!!!!!

Feeling mostly sad today ( 08/05/07)
I am feeling pretty sad today for a number of reasons.

1- I had a really bad day at work, things didn't go like i had planned. Sometimes no matter how had you try it doesn't seem to be good enough. Even though you don't do things for praise, its really nice sometimes when you do something well to be told so and be given some encouragement. If you give your best how can you give more?

2- I had to say bye bye to Craig for a few weeks which was hard espcially when you are feeling poo and you just wanna cuddle - 3 weeks is a long time!

3 - I am feeling really tired physically and emotionally after the weekend which always makes you feel worse. When i get really tired i cry at the smallest things!

4 - Because i feel poo and tired and deflated i am going to buy loads of choc and naughty things and then feel fat in the morning!

Woe is me!

This year I had the privileged of being on the Roots prayer team. At first I was mega nervous, especially after we met as a team for our first meeting as all the other team members were really wise and had loads of prayer experience. Then I realised that for the last year I have been praying with loads of people (all my clients) on a weekly basis and taking in to account that to most of these people prayer and god is a totally alien concept.

The first lady I prayed with was an elderly lady who had really bad arthritis in her knee, I thought to my self that God doesn’t normally answer my prayers for healing but I prayed really hard anyway that God would heal her of the pain that she felt in her knee. After praying I asked her how the pain was and she said that it hadn’t changed. I was really disappointed and said to God “ God please can you just flipping heal her!” This happened in the morning and I couldn’t get her off my mind all day so continued to pray for her. I saw her later on that night and asked her how she was feeling, she said that they pain had gone! Praise God! I was so shocked that God had used little me in that amazing situation! I was so shocked that the lady didn’t have any pain anymore!!! But then I thought that I shouldn’t be surprised when our God who is the God of miracles does something so amazing! So then I felt bad that I didn’t have high expectations of him! Oh dear! My brain is crazy and believe it or not thinks too much!!!

There were loads of other high points of the weekend including a real confidence that God installed in me to just get on and pray with people and not to feel shy but have confidence that he was working through me and that as long as I stuck with him I would be fine! I prayed with a number of people who had been in difficult relationships and had separated. I prayed with a lady who was struggling with her prayer life. Another great thing was I prayed with a mother and daughter who was having a really tough time with her friends and was moving away to uni so was really going to miss her mum as they were really close because of the daughter’s father who had left them with nothing when she was a little girl. The next day they both came back in to the prayer tent to say thank you and that they were feeling a lot better. Yeppie!

Then there was the whole seeing Craig thing, which was great even though it was a little messy as he was working most of the time that I was off and I was off most of the time that I was working. But it was still great! I got to met some of his friends who are really nice (was nervous about this!) And he got to meet some more of my friends which was really good too. The more time we spend together the more I realise that I really love him and just how much he loves me. He treats me with so much respect and love its beautiful and makes me feel beautiful! He He! I got really upset though at the thought of mot seeing him again for a few weeks but hey its real love and we wil get through.

And then to top off a lovely weekend I go to have tea with my lovely friends from church – Deb, Will, Katie, Mary, Peter, Rosie, Sarah, Heather, Kev, Al and a man who plays the bongos and used to be in wham! Crazy!
Thanks God for a lovely time at Roots and Thank you for my friends and family and for Craig. I love you!

Old friends

It was our north western youth chorus reunion on Saturday and i have to say that i had a great time! It was so lovely to catch up with people that i haven't seen for ages. I was really nervous about going just because i always remember getting really nervous before going to practice every month but really enjoying it when i got there. Kevin and Gaynor used to take me home when it was in Preston, and i remember so vividly this one time when Kevin was telling me and Libby ( who was also having a lift) about how he had a really hot kebab one time and it was so bad that it stung both ways! this has been a lasting memory of Kev! He He!

I think the highlight of Sat was sitting next to Rachel and Becky, i had forgotten how to read music!! So the 3 of us were coming in with the men, missing coda's, singing notes that weren't there! Rachel had to remind me that we sing the top line! Very funny!

You can see by the picture that it was well attended. i think its quite a nice picture, don't you?

Real life

Did anyone see Holby city this week? I did and i want to write down a few of my feelings around two of the story lines covered in this episode. First of all i know that its not real but it does cover real issues. The first storyline was about a girl who was 14 and was involved in prostitution (some of you will know that this is something that is very close to me heart) she had been beaten up by a customer and found herself in hospital. After having some routine blood tests guess what? yes you guessed it she was pregnant. The doctor who was treating her ( who i think had a link to from a past experience? I'm not sure) kinda made her mind up and managed to get her booked in for an emergency termination. This whole story broke my heart, i was crying while i was watching it because even though i knew that its a fictional story on the TV i also know that this is a real situation and is happening in our country, and in our City of Liverpool. It made me think of a time while i was volunteering with Heavens Kitchen ( A soup kitchen that used to run for sex trade workers on Crown Street in Liverpool) and the chats that i used to have with the girls. I remember one girl who was so so drunk that all she was doing was crying ( It was her first night and she had drank so much so that she wouldn't remember exactly what she was doing) this girl was only 17. There were a number of girls in similar situations both younger and older. the youngest girl i spoke to was just 16 years old.

This is such a huge issue all over the world, but what as Christians are we doing about it? As Christians we want the lost to be found. Jesus wants us to be practical Christians. i desperately want to be a practical Christian , I'm desperate to show Gods love to the people who need it most. God is challenging me to do something beautiful for these people in his name, but what can i do? Two songs come to mind

people need the lord
Everyday they pass me by
I can see it in their eyes
Empty people filled with careHeaded who knows where
On they go through private pairLiving fear to fear
Laughter hides their silent criesOnly Jesus hears

People need the Lord
People need the Lord
At the end of broken dreamsHe's the open door
People need the LordPeople need the Lord
When will they realize
People need the Lord

We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right
What could be too great a cost forSharing life with one who's lost
Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear
They must hear the words of life
Only we can share

People need the Lord
People need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams
He's the open door
People need the Lord
When will they realize
That we must give our lives
For people need the Lord
People need the Lord
People need the Lord

and my response

I want to be the hands of Jesus, my hands his deep compassion show
I want to be the feet of Jesus, As to a needy world i go.
I gladly give my all to Jesus Through me redeeming Love must flow.

I'll tell you about the other storyline some other time.

Shloer its your sparkle or is it?!

Yeah! Army wine! Yum Yum! I am a red grape kinda girl really.

Anyway more to the point......

Shloer claims that it give you your sparkle but i beg to differ. The last month I have been getting to know Craig Gaudion and i would like to tell you how he makes me feel. For the last 4 weeks i have been speaking to Craig on the phone every night for at least 3 hours! I know i can talk but 84 hours (at least!) is a little excessive! Its been so great to get to know Craig's heart. Craig is one of the most caring, genuine, trustworthy and crazy men i have ever met. I feel like i have known him for years its really strange! Craig's passion and zeal for God is an inspiration to me and encourages me to develop my faith. I have to say that this is all pretty scary for me as i am so so frightened of getting my heart broken and getting in to something that isn't right, Craig knows all about this and so accepting of my feelings.

Craig is so complimentary to me and also is really nice to my family which is really important to me. I feel like i can totally be myself with him, no masks, just Gemma and guess what?! he's still interested!

I have been reading through my prayer journals from the last year and i can't believe how God has answered my prayers even when I haven't trusted in him he has still kept by me and sorted me out. I wrote a list of all the qualities that i wanted my future man to have and offered it as a prayer to God and guess what?! Craig meets it to the letter! I shouldn't be surprised really, i always seem to forget that God is a pretty clever guy and he knows whats best for me.

I have drinking shloer on and off for the last year and still felt the same, no added sparklyness! But since i have met Craig i feel like I've got butterflies living in my heart! I feel so happy and i have definitely got my sparkle back! So i am changing the catch phrase to Craig......He's my sparkle!

ps- Sorry is this makes you feel sick Kev and Will!
West Kirkby

After going to see my very good freinds Lynsey And Neil we went to west kirkby to have a picnic at the beach! We couln't find a legal parking space so had to stay near the car but still it was lovley! The weather was really nice too!

THen we went over to see my other good friends Debbie, Will , and Kaite!

Fun Fun Fun!


Hee its me! a new crazy specie originating form St Helens and grazing mainly on cadburys. One of a kind!


Wesley and Helen bought me and craig tickets to go to Chester zoo for my birthday! How exciting! We had a great day and got to see lots of animals, birds, and snakes etc

We had loads of fun! We even tried out what we would look like as some of the animals! What do you think?

Hee hee! Then i got stuck up an tree! Criag pretended to be a jaguar thingy! We also went in a bat cave which was really scary as the bats fly right over your head! Craigs hand was rather sqashed at this point!

Then we saw the lovley elephants, there was a baby one too! Sweet!
