It's snowing!!!!!!!!!!! woo!! get your wellington boots out!
Where has time flown? I haven't posted recently - so apologies from me, as I have been so busy. So much has happened, and I haven't found the time to write up my news - until now :)
So...it will be a briefer blog as the build up to Christmas now (yippy), and I may not have time to write again until next year.
So much has happened to me in 2009....maybe a couple downs, but, mostly ups and highs (and not the kind from my medications..ok)...just life being brilliant and achieving goals that I thought were not possible (Transplant Games medals/10 mile Bupa Run); winning the Essex Achievers Award (Against all Odds category)...travelling about in different countries in April and then my recent trip in November to Croatia!
2009, has also been a sad year loosing close friends who never recieved their life saving transplants in time, or loosing their fight against ill health. I often wonder, why did I get lucky...and not my friends. Truth is, there still isn't enough donors here in the UK - compared to other European countries. The statistics are 96% people they would readily accept an organ if their life depended on it, but only 27% actually have joined the organ donor register!!!!!!!!!!!!
The photo here, is with the background view of Dubrovnik in Croatia. I will still write about my time travelling there, but, will have to do this now next year. I mean It is Christmas next week!!
I am very excited for Christmas this year, and look forward to seeing family and friends and those close to me. A time to eat, drink and be merry :)
Well, short and sweet. I wish you all a very happy and wonderful festive season, and a great New Year!! Hope my mates still waiting - do get their lives re-vamped like mine was, and more people register on the donor register.
STAY HAPPY & SMILE LOTS !!
Thanks for everyone's continued support x x x
