The Final Countdown

Four months before the wedding day, David’s carer left us.  So whilst we searched for the perfect replacement, I became David’s full time carer….which believe me, is pretty intense and sometimes exhausting. Life with David is never dull but I was trying to manage my own work, wedding plans, gym………………………………….

The Sun Always Shines on TV

Better late than never – things get super hectic when you get married apparently!  Anyway, here I am again, with more ramblings about life with a grumpy tetraplegic and mutterings about marriage.  I mentioned in my last blog about the TV company that had approached us about filming the wedding…..well,………………………………….

Moving in together

After a relatively short period of time, we decided that we’d like to make things more permanent; it just seemed right.  Travelling back and forth from Monmouth was difficult, and time consuming for her, and it meant that we could only see each other a few times a week. There………………………………….

Getting to Know You

After our first date I had butterflies and was buzzing. I was really looking forward to meeting again. Nicky loves cooking, and suggested that she came over to cook for us here. I asked my carer to leave us to it for the evening, and we had the place to………………………………….

Unconditionally

I have so much to tell you about.  I’m torn between telling you about the wedding and all the exciting things that are happening.  But I also want to tell you more about the early days of our relationship and how I found myself turning cartwheels around the moon with happiness………………………………….
