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, ………………………………….

Doin’ the Do!

I believe I promised you all that I would tell you a bit more about a private side of our life.  I’m not sure if I can make a blog post about sex funny and interesting whilst retaining an air of dignity, but I’ll gave it a go! Back in ………………………………….

Little Things

Just like anyone else, we love going away: fancy hotels with glitzy restaurants, romantic evenings watching sunsets on the beach, breakfast in bed and a shower big enough to Zumba in? Yup, all that and more! But the reality is that going away for us, is considerably more complicated.  At ………………………………….

You will know by now that I threw myself into this relationship with every bit of strength I had.  I chose to take on David’s care and I wanted to get heavily involved with sailing and rugby.  We have a fantastic life.  It’s very busy, often exhausting keeping up with ………………………………….
