MOTHER'S Day was made complete for one local mum when she was reunited with a lost camera memory card which had hundreds of precious photos stored on it.

Sonia Thomas appeared in last week's Herts Advertiser after one of the family's memory cards was accidentally left in a games console they traded in at Blockbuster in London Road, St Albans.

The card had around 200 photos saved on it, mainly of Sonia and her partner's eight-month-old daughter since her birth, and their 11-year-old son on his first day at secondary school.

The couple, who also have another son and a daughter, were devastated to lose the memory card as the photos were not stored anywhere else and were yet to be printed.

But much to their relief, the new owner of the computer contacted Blockbuster on Sunday after seeing the article in the paper and posters up in the store, and the card was returned.

A delighted Sonia said this week that she was going to get the photos printed off immediately to avoid any risk of losing them again.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
