It’s been a while since I wrote in here. Have just been really busy. Was also on holiday in Scotland with my Dad for just over a week. That was fun, had a really nice time.
Lynsey’s wedding is about 2 months away… so exciting! I got in touch with my friend Katie, who’s a photographer. She does all sorts of events. So I’ve asked her if she’ll do Lynsey’s wedding and she said yes. They couldn’t afford a photographer themselves, so Katie said she’ll do it at a reduced rate, to just cover the cost of transport. As far as Lynsey & Stu know, she’s doing it for free, as they wouldn’t accept it otherwise, I’ll be picking up the cost.
Lynsey and Stu are thrilled that they’ve got a photographer. Lynsey’s also got her dress (which is gorgeous) and she’s asked me to do a reading (1 Corinthians 13). Katie is also on the board of trust for an organisation that gives people that are ill their dream wedding – getting flowers, cake, invitations etc, for free from different companies. She’s said Lynsey can have anything she wants (within reason!). So that’s pretty awesome!
She’s not doing so well health wise. She’s been having a bad couple of weeks. Her arthritis is really flaring up, and she now can’t go anywhere without a wheelchair. She’s had the first assessment with the transplant team, she now needs to have a 4-day assessment, which will be absolutely exhausting for her. Please, please pray that she’s eligable for a transplant. If she’s not, she probably won’t live to see her first wedding anniversary.
Things with Joe have blown up… He told me that he was gonna tell Tahnee everything, and that he wants to be single for a while. So he told Tahnee that he and Becky have been sleeping together. She was devastated, but she wants to try and make the relationship work. Now he’s saying it might be a good thing and that he’ll give it a go. All of Tahnee’s friends are furious and sent out a hate mail about Joe & Becky telling us all that we should drop them as friends otherwise we’re just as bad as them etc. I replied back saying it’s none of their business who people are friends with and to leave Tahnee and Joe alone to sort things out themselves. Bloody children. I forget sometimes that there’s a 4 year age gap between us. Four years isn’t a lot, but it is when they’re 19/20. Kids.
I’ve passed my BSL exam! Which is awesome!! Passed my uni exam!! Which is even more awesome – second year here I come!! It’s been over a month since I’ve quit smoking. I got on to a 3 day intensive brain anatomy course in London, which am thrilled about. So excited!
I’ve now got two blogs that my friends know about – one about what it’s like being deaf, the other about recovering from rape. If any of you want to read those blogs, let me know.
Other than that, don’t think much else is happening.
