i know its not during Downs Awareness week, but on another great site (proudwalsall.org) Jo is organising a fete in September which we will hopefully get to and if we could get everyone off this site to meet up also that would be great, hope you dont mind me mentioning this other site. Jo who runs other site is organising something for Downs Awareness week also, its on the site, but we cannot get to that. Hope to meet up wth some of you soon, we could maybe try to arrange an 'upfordowns' meet up somewhere soon.
hi Claire I am sure you will be fine tomorrow but I know how you feel I am not good at speaking whilst nervous as i find it hard to find the right words to explain myself good luck I will hear tomorrow how you get on Crystal
Well it's done!! I'm already thinking of things I didn't say. I hope she writes a nice feature. I asked if I'm allowed to read it before it goes to print but she said it's not their policy but she will phone me to go over a few things beforehand. A photographer came round first and took lots of pics of George and some with me (yuk) and as Esme is on half term he took some of her with George too so that was nice. Dreading next monday now lol x
Lizzy - how did you get on?
P.s. I plugged this site too and gave her the web address to put in the article x
Been on hols so not been on for a while, got back today and had an e-mail from local paper - Bury Times wanting my phone number so replied and he phoned me. Took all details over phone and is sending a photographer round next Tues. Never thought about having my photo in paper when Icontacted them (hate having it taken i am not photogenic and look better in the mirro than i do on photos so get fed up when i see myself on a photo) hubby said he won't do it instead so needs must! lgging off now just pooped on to this thread, tired now. Well done to everyone else, i am sure more will follow as it is getting close to the time.
Hi Trinkle thats good news. I'm the same about having my photo taken. The photographer wanted me to lie on the floor with George - I'm sure he could see straight down my top lol so I'm dreading that being in the paper! Anyway its too late now it'll be in Mondays paper! Did you have a lovely holiday - was it you who was going to Disney? x
Thanks all, hubby said what did you do to his hair! he had been playing in the garden and wont keep hats on so i cover him in sun cream including his head and it just makes his hair go all over the place. He has straight hair but it looks a bit curly.
Duggary, a cuppa would be nice, where is West Yorks are you?
