One amongst many, time to be bold 

Courage I have a plenty, confidence not so much! There’s time for strength, time to be bold and boy has it been a journey.

Fortunately I’m a worker bee, one of many, I’m of the earth, grounded and strong, informatively humble, courageously bold.

The U.K has been home to me, but Europe opened a door that took me on a Polish adventure a story to be told.

I fell in love with my husband the day I heard his voice, Robert called me from the US and my life changed overnight.

A vow was cast in a magical castle, red stone, green walls and sun loving flowers, yet year’s apart we are about to be reunited, it’s been seven months you know.

It’s been quite a journey we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve learned, we have often shared the journey though we always seem apart.

My promise has driven me to become a better man, I’m focused and determined i’m better because I can.

I’ve never been a quitter and health has been on my side, come join me on my journey it’s been quite a bumpy ride.
Join me on
