Miracles can happen…
What a glorious day to share some fabulous news with you, more than two years on from Sam's dreadful road accident, where he was so badly hurt. My boy was able to get up on water skis! Not the easiest thing to manage with a prosthetic leg, but after weeks of trying, he did it!
Before the accident, he could wake board, ski and mono ski, and I know he was doubtful he'd ever do these things again… I can't begin to tell you how proud I was, or how pleased he was, but I think the photo (left) says it all…
Off the back of this he's decided to make a tandem sky dive on the 5th September, so there'll be me all grey and shaking on the ground, and him floating above me with a smile no doubt as wide as his parachute! I guess there's an element of devil may care when you've survived what he has… so I will be brave and applaud him 🙂
Ibiza here we come!
I plan to sit in the sun and share a beer with him over this next week as we've decided to take a last minute break to Ibiza. We're going with Sam's best mate James, my Jack, Colin and his entire brood of children and various others… 13 of us will board a plane this weekend for the sunshine island that I haven't visited since I was 18!
Most of my girlfriends think I'm crazy… I of course know I am, therefore this little jaunt will probably be all they expect it to be and more. I'll let you know when I get back 🙂
Lucy has very kindly offered to feed the cats while we're away, but I'm going to have to keep them downstairs as Willows has a tendancy to sleep in the bath and the door's a little dodgy so I wouldn't want her shut in!
Share your embarrasing moments…
On Gold Day, I set off to meet my charming guest Veronica Bicci and forgot my pass. So, I was trapped in the stairwell for what felt like eternity, but in reality was only a couple of minutes, before some kind soul heard me hammering on the door and let me out!
It took me back to the time I got stuck in a lift at the publishers I worked at… not funny, as you'll know if it's happened to you! Most embarrassing though was being locked in a toilet while waiting in A & E, pulling the emergency cord and being rescued… only to discover that I was in fact in the Gents!
I bet you can top that though. Especially if you've ever used those dreadful timed loos on a train! Whoever thought that one up! Round of applause for the best tale 🙂
Keep in touch and let me know how things are with you.
