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, ………………………………….

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

I know you’re waiting to hear about the wedding; about the meringue-i-ness of the dress; the music we danced to; the number of times I cried (it ran to several hundred before midday in case you were wondering!).  But I need to finish telling you about the planning and the build ………………………………….

Marry You

Friday 27th November; my life changed forever.  It started as your average Friday.  David’s carer came in at 8am to get him up and I went off to the gym.  Nothing unusual.  I came back from the gym and spent 4 hours on the phone trying to get tickets for ………………………………….

The first date

Waiting for Nicky to arrive for our first date evoked a lot of emotions, but mainly excitement, trepidation, and hope.  It was exciting because we had already spoken and messaged each other a lot, and I was looking forward to meeting this bubbly person properly.  Obviously our paths had crossed ………………………………….

Twin air bags?

One evening in June 2013 I was sat in my armchair, half watching TV, probably drinking a glass of red wine, and scanning through the profiles of people on Match.com.  I tended to find that anybody I expressed an interest in had no interest in me, so after quite a ………………………………….

Thinking Out Loud

It’s 17 weeks until we get married. 17 WEEKS!!!! How did that happen?!? We’ve still got so much to organise, but recently life has been revolving around sailing and our trip to the World Championships in Holland. David finished in 7th overall (pretty amazing stuff! He thinks he should have ………………………………….

Back in the game

After 16 years of being with the same person, the idea of dating again was a little bit exciting, but also hugely scary.  Obviously, I was not the same physically as I was last time I did this, but then that is also true for all the other 40/50 something ………………………………….
