Started writing this a month ago and haven’t had a chance to finish it, so a bit of this doesn’t really make much sense, but regardless I’m still gonna make you read it!
So since my last post I feel like I have been in a whirlwind, swept along and I don’t feel like I’m going to slow down any time soon. We’ve had training camps, I’ve had some bad news (family wise), work has been very busy and we have tournaments coming up where I’m trying to organise child care for Josh…so much going on! Not to mention I’ve had to plan for our afternoon at Buckingham Palace!
Training is going well, we’re all making small improvements every time we’re together so all is looking good. Just need to hit the top all together and we should be awesome! We have the ability to be awesome, just need the confidence in ourselves.
We go to Germany tomorrow for the Europeans and after the tournament we had against Canada last week we are almost there with our confidence. I believe we can do very very well in these Europeans and show that our 7th place at London was not where we should have been.
In the middle of all this we found out that my daddy has oesophagael cancer, he started his treatment 4 weeks ago. It’s been really tough finding this out, you always think your parents are indestructible – I believe that he will get through this but it’s been tough finding this out and taken it’s toll on me. I have been worried and not taken it well at all. My husband is being a fantastic support, love him very much.
We went to Buckingham Palace on the 30th May and it was amazing, I have some photos but as I’m on my kindle you’ll have to wait until I’m back on the computer!
I need to go and finish packing for Germany and brain is not functioning so can’t remember what else I wanted to say, when I think of it and have time I will be back! I will be tweeting to keep you updated with how we are doing in Germany but you can also look on the official website.
Oh Josh, Mike and I are doing the Colour Run in London on the 14th July. It’s a 5km run where you get covered in coloured powder stuff. We’re raising money for Stand Up To Cancer in conjunction with Cancer Research UK and I have a just giving website set up. I would really appreciate any donations you could give, big or small. The link is either on the right of my blog (could be on the bottom if you’re on a mobile device) or click here.
I will post again soon!
Love & Hugs
