Becareful what you ask for....
In my garden you may have noticed the mural on the wall. As well as brightening the garden up for C it is a reminder that life does not always go according to plan!
After a very bitter divorce (he wanted me but not C) I thought I deserved a holiday. As im not a beach person I decided to do a charity hike in the Himalayas. A holiday of adventure and raise money for a good cause, disabled children.
I also had a feeling that it would change my life.
I’ve always been fairly fit, an ex gymnast and swimming teacher, which put me in good stead for hiking 8 hours a day for 10 days. I could write a blog about each day, but don’t worry I wont!
The Hindu Kush, was stunning, the views out of this world and the people were all so lovely. We all bonded very quickly as we were all there for the same reason (I was the only parent
of a disabled child there) There were many incidents along the way, funny ones, dramatic ones,
scary ones, drunken ones. And life changing ones....
And of course that had to happen to me! The only thankful thing about it was it happened on the very last day!!!
But as I have a busy day today I must fly so I will continue this story tomorrow!
