Dear Mummy, I know 2017 hasn’t been the easiest of years for you but we have had some fun. Even though you spent a lot of your time off work and in hospital we’ve still managed to squeeze in some family adventures together. We missed our holiday at the beginning of the year in Mexico due to you being admitted 4 days before we flew out, thankfully that lung collapse was caught before you boarded the flight.
Fast forward 6 months, 3 lung collapses and 2 lung surgeries later, you’ve recovered and we’ve been to EIGHT festivals, reviewed numerous events and you took the leap and boarded a plane to Dubrovnik! It’s been a pretty hectic end of year with lots of Christmas events and a whirlwind trip to Cornwall to stay at Coombe Mill as a New Years treat.
For us the motto for 2017 has been “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” Recovery is slow after surgery but you can’t stop living life to its full. A health scare can make you realise that. Here’s our year in numbers…
Love Bella x
