The Bounce

Well my amazing ladies did it. They bounced on their space hoppers and raised a stack of money for Cancer charities in Yorkshire. I'm so proud of them they give me so much support, emotionally and physically. They are my reason for life.

Lots of flat space hoppers, pumping required.
Carys in full flight, well her hair is anyway.

They bounced for a minute to try to set a record but missed it for some reason but then set a new record for the number of people bouncing a quarter of a mile! Carys bounced the full course and was totally bounced out by the end of it.

I feel incredibly blessed to witness the kindness and generosity of people who have given their time or their money to charities. I have also received gifts from work which are incredibly generous and have given me a massive lump in my throat to think people take time out from their busy lives to think about me. Thank you, it means a massive amount to me.

As a dad and a husband I am the luckiest, yes having cancer is sh*t but I have an incredible family who I absolutely adore and they are a constant reminder of how good life can be.

  1. Morning Nick , Just a quick hello and I am so glad you went with the thug rather than the other option.
    I am though thinking of taking up knitting in time for the winter. I have resisted sending fruit and if you saw my knitting you would hope I would aslo be able to stop myself sending knitted items through the post to keep your head warm in the winter to come.
    You and Wendy are like a hand print on my heart and it keeps me close to you both.
    Speak soon Gwyn xxxxxx
