Once upon a time, not so very long ago........

Little Leon was born with a poorly heart. This made his Mummy and Daddy sad and they decided to search for a special friend who would keep Little Leon company and look after him while he was in hospital.............

The Adventure begins..............

Stormy Weather & Valentine Ball!

Stormy Weather & Valentine Ball!

Well what a week! As you know last week was CHD awareness week and to finish it off we went to the annual CHSF Valentines Ball. It;s an opportunity for us to get together and have a good night out and also raise much needed funds for the Children's Heart Surgery Fund and Leeds General Infirmary. This year they are hoping to raise enough money for a state of the art Pain distraction system (I thought that was what alcohol was for ;-) !! ) Seriously this is a fantastic piece of kit that helps when children need to have certain procedures. So we got dressed up,
T'Old Lass scrubs up well!

met up with old friends, had a good meal, listened to some emotional speeches, raised a few quid....
Trying to unlock the door to an iPad!
we even had a boogie,! A good night was had and over 5k was raised. As ever it;s not enough, so if you wish to donate, leave me a message!

Then, as one of the many recent storms paid us a visit, the tree outside the house decided it had had enough and would try and hitch a lift somewhere else oh the front of the Mrs's car!

Think we need more than a bit of T Cut to shift this!
Ouch! It could have been a lot worse, only a few minutes Earlier Helen had been getting Leon out of the car, so it was quite a lucky escape. So the Car is in the Garage, the Tree is now woodchip, and Mrs Blackbird is now looking for somewhere else to sit and sing! Just reminds me that if it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have any at all at times!

So remember folks, be careful out there, and there's always someone worse off than yourselves, at least I'm not a Homeless Blackbird!
