Bucket List Achievements

Number 20: Abseil. 

Abseil 2013

On March 19th 2013 I abseiled 200ft for Epilepsy Action down Miller house in Maidstone. It was so amazing, thrilling, and yet quiet, calm and a lovely view. It was much harder work than I expected and it was so so cold but I really enjoyed it and completed it raising £720 for Epilepsy Action

 

Number 13: Get a Tattoo

Ive now done this twice.

if you can dream it you can do it

My first tattoo is my foot one – done in two parts it is mickeys head with tiggers print inside as I love disney and tigger (tigz) is my nickname many of my friends have given to be cos I’m always bouncing back. The quote is there to remind me exactly that “if you can dream it you can do it”.  :-)

My second tattoo is on my left wrist. it is my dedication to Epilepsy awareness.  The butterfly is a symbol of epilepsy awareness and the ribbon is the epilepsy ribbon. The sparkles represent me and all my friends who have stood by me !  Im really pleased and proud of my tattoo and it will always remind me to stay strong and never loose hope.

Went ten pin bowling with mum and Darren. The day was so funny and i think we all hurt from laughing which for me was much needed therapy at that time. Darren completely wiped the floor with us however mum did win one game ! I didn’t win any but it didn’t matter cos i still had fun and did get a couple of strikes so i was happy !
