Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th October
The Organ Donor Register has reached its 25th anniversary this month! More than 20,000 lives have potentially been saved or transformed thanks to its introduction.
And I am one of those people 💗💙
The Organ Donor Register was set up in 1994, after a five year campaign by the amazing Cox family in memory of Peter, who died from a brain tumour in 1989 aged 24 and became a donor.

Have a look at this fascinating video. Their moving in a straight line?! 😱
Well done to England in the Rugby World Cup 🏉 I’m looking forward to the final on Saturday 🤞
Wednesday 9th to Wednesday 23rd October
It’s not much fun when your boiler breaks down and you have no heating or hot water for the week. Grumpy girls, Leah having to use the ‘not very nice’ showers up at the gym when she’s finished her workout and Robyn actually getting under the freezing cold one at home 🚿🥶 She is absolutely crazy that girl!
Heaven when we eventually got it fixed.
We certainly take these simple things for granted nowadays don’t we.
Have a watch of this video. ‘making the decision’ to donate a loved one’s organs when dealing with their loss can be tough for families. This is how doctors and nurses help them through.
This makes me think even more of my two donor families who had to go through this absolutely dreadful time 😰
Thank you 💗💙
Please have that important chat with your family and friends so that they know your own wishes, it makes a difficult time much easier, and then many more donor organs will become available to save other people’s lives 🙂
And just to end on a slightly lighter note, this is definitely me, everything hurts 😖
Monday 7th to Tuesday 8th October
I went to Bath 😃
We packed a lot in to our one night/two day stay. We didn’t stop! We walked 11 miles over the two days 👣
It’s a lovely place to visit.
Even the shopping centre was pretty.
We watched the busker (and the lady who decided to join him) 🤣
We went out for a really yummy evening meal
and messed around making some funny videos!
“The Royal Crescent, one of Bath’s most iconic landmarks, was built between 1767 and 1775 and designed by John Wood the Younger.
We went to the Thermae Bath Spa, an award-winning natural spa where you can bathe in Britain’s only naturally warm, mineral-rich waters as the Celts and Romans did over 2,000 years ago!
We spent quite a lot of our time there in the open-air rooftop pool with views over the city.
It was quite weird being in there during the heavy rain showers, but when the warm sun came back out it was just the best ☀️
There was just time for me to try and be artistic in the early evening sunshine with my photograph of Bath Abbey 📸
And then we had to come home ☹️
And I’ve been wearing yellow today ‘to show young people that they’re not alone when struggling with their mental health’
Tuesday 1st to Sunday 6th October
So it’s only the beginning of October and already I just want to hibernate.
It’s so cold in the shop where I work, Raynaud’s time! (Have you tried picking up coins when your fingertips are completely numb …)
My body is just tense all day long where it’s trying to keep me warm! Not much good at all for my already hurting back 😖
Can you find the camel in the picture below?
There was a claim going around that if you can’t find the camel you may be at risk of suffering from Alzheimer’s in the future. I think this has now been proved to be a hoax.
But I just really like the clever way the animals have all been put together to create the illusion of the human face.
Tuesday 24th to Monday 30th September
Seems like it’s time for yet another virus for me to deal with ☹️🤒
On Facebook I belong to a group called Share Your Wishes, a group of transplant recipients, parents of children who have had transplants, live donors and donor families.
On Thursday evening Sarah from Share Your Wishes was live on Seahaven FM (96.3 and online at seahavenfm.com which attracts listeners from all around the world) for the 7th Share Your Wishes show.
During the show the music that was played was all chosen by people touched by organ donation.
And they played my song! 😍
You can have a listen to the show here Seahaven FM
My song was on first. Be a little patient, it comes on after the news and weather etc!
It was a great radio show to listen to, very emotional. Such lovely songs had been chosen by everyone.
So you can also listen to the second half of the show here Seahaven FM
I hope you enjoy 🎶
