The final blog …
2018 .. it’s been a rollercoaster to be fair! But let’s look back at some highs of 2018!
I saw my cardiac team after 3 years and found out I was young OK and that I’d reach my 30 year post open heart surgery without intervention and that excited me a lot!
Me and Martin headed to Wembley to see united v Spurs In the fa cup semi final and we won!
In May I visited Madrid who had has been top of my travel bucket list for the longest time and I got to visit Real Madrid and do the tour which was fantastic and also on my bucket list! Madrid was warm and beautiful and wheeling around it was fab!
We visited Stratford for the day which was lovely I’ve not been for a while!
We had a heatwave in the uk over the summer!
