Go go go!

Finally just sitting down, and it's 11:30pm. 

Today really has been go go go from my 8:30am power walk with Kel. Today we were getting all the stuff sorted for Mum's 50th party, cooking, making playlists, buying all the last minute things, matches etc.
It was a brilliant party and we all had a lot of good fun.
My feet are now hurting, muddy and squashed from my shoes! 

I'm now off to go and collapse on my bed. Good night!

Mum's 50th!

So last week, my old ma turned the ripe old age of 50! To celebrate, we travelled three and a half hours, to Cardiff, Wales, to visit my big bro. We stayed for the weekend, and it was a lot of fun. It was so nice to get out of my home town for a little bit, even if it was only for a few days.

We are throwing her a party in a few days, so photo's of that to come!

I did take a lot of photo's, but I didn't want to bore you with a million random photos, so here are my fave ones....

Ran out of loo roll

Conversation between Kel and I...
Kel: "I'm just going to the loo"
"Ok"
"Oh crap, we've run out of loo roll"
"Uh oh! D'ya want some kitchen roll?"
"Go on then"
"How many sheets do you want?"
"One'll be fine"
"Cause, 'Juan sheet does plenty'"
"(laughing) You're not funny"
"Yes I am"

So good to have her back!

Bittersweet

So this past week I have been saying my goodbyes to the young people I have been working with for the past year. Today I think was the hardest... It was the last of the 11-18's youth club. I have met some amazing young people, and become good friends with the volunteers that help us out.
I got some prezzies and cards to say thanks, and at that point I then felt like all the hard times I've had this year were worth it. The tears, confusion, frustration and stress, have so been worth it, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat, because I know I have made a difference. I know God has used me in such an amazing way to be his hands and feet in their lives, and I will always be thankful for the privilege of that. 

It's sad, but I'm also very excited for the future!

She's back!

This week has been specifically brilliant. 

My bezzie mate for 8 years has been in Africa for the past 11 months, so we've had to deal with Skyping for any kinds of communication. She has been working out there helping people, and pretty much just being a decent human being. We were reunited finally this week, a few happy tears were shed, and an overdue cuppa and natter was had!

It was the best, and I'm so unbelievably proud of her.
