I'm excited now!!!! I think in my giddyness, I deleted the email, with the contact phone number on it. Because this morning, I received another reminding me of the closing date for accepting, is the 26th of Jan. And if I had questions there was the crucial number, (an answer to all my questions?) Having been inundated with Postmen, and Birth Certificates as well, this am. (ok only 2!) but it proved I hadn't totally lost it, and I did order them. I started to get giddy, for the first time.
I rang with many questions, of course the first one..Can I Cycle?...Can I fix the Torch in between the front wheels, on my Tadpole recumbent? She is going to find out for me? But asked is there anyone, I would like to Carry The Torch, for me, if I couldn't? Of course I said Steve, but I haven't a clue whether he'd want to?
Pete called telling me about this Soldier, who'd lost his legs and had also been picked. We were both sayinmg Wow!!this is immense but, I am feeling humble. I have heard of 3 folk, who wern't chosen, and the only 'edge' I have on them, maybe? Is that I like talking. So thank you blogger 'Wait For Pete' for suggesting it. Even though I had to ask Nigel to nominate me!!! I did it for the right reasons!!
I haven't made any New Years Resolutions - well not repeatable ones!!!
So here are a few, I've just made.
Get a dog from Erin hounds, that's been tried and tested.
Carry the Olympic Torch.
Make Hillsborough better, and more accessable.(2 days for a start)
Not lose friends, just make my Network of different folk grow.
Cycle a 2 Wheeler.
Stay financially sound.
Get a spare Cycle.
Go on Holiday with kids?
Do Porch/bike shed/loft
Maybe? I'm not sure about this one, so I'm scared to put it......find work?
Stay Happy!!! because I'm feeling happy nopw, because if I'm honest it was getting me down not knowing who to speak to about the Torch.
Happy Birthday Miriam, xxxxx
