Archives for the month of: October, 2012

Yesterday we held a coffee morning at our house in Surrey. We invited people through Facebook and made some fliers for our £5 all you can eat coffee morning…there was a lot of cake to eat as well! Friends donated cakes and we collected some raffle prizes which made for a brilliant morning. We raised £184 which is fantastic. Thank you to my friend Anna who helped with the organising and rustled up lots friends to join us.

It was lovely when people came to introduce themselves and say that they wanted to come along and show their support and for them to ask about Tilly, after all, that’s what this is all about. I had lots of people wish me good luck for the marathon training, but do I have a place…? You’ll just have to wait until the ‘Pirates & Princess” party to find out! The good news is my Achilles are feeling much better so I will be up and running again next month.

Tonight marked the end of Baby loss awareness week 2012, throughout the world people light candles at 7pm local time to remember those who have lost babies and those affected by the loss of a baby. Surrey SANDS marked the end of the week with a lantern release on Epsom Downs, it was a lovely event bringing together families affected by the loss of a baby.

I think it’s important to remember that people who have lost babies & children never really get over what has happened, we just learn to live our lives around what has happened. Not a day goes by when I do not think about our baby girl.

I hope that those friends who knew about the wave of light lit their candle tonight, and if you didn’t, maybe next time you light a candle you will think of all those angel babies.

I am continuing with my fundraising and this Friday my friend Anna & are having a coffee morning and raffle to work our way towards £3000!

The total for our fundraising continues to rise and last weekend one of my best girlfriends Beth, ran the Taunton 10k to add some more money to the pot. This is made even more amazing by the fact she has been out of the country for over a year and only recently returned, rumour has it that her training routine was more cocktails than intervals. None the less she put in a fantastic effort and hopes to have raised over £100. Thank you Beth!
