For Christmas my most bestist and beautiful girls @leona1309 and @claire_kerr84 gave me the MOST AWESOME pressie!!! Those secret squirrels had been in touch with Virgin and organised a hot air balloon ride for me with Jake too!!!! This was one of my ULTIMATE BUCKET list dreams and I have been SO excited since December when they told me. Since December has been a tricky period and so I've been counting down the minutes until we could feel the breeze in our faces whilst hanging in a little basket from above watching the world. ❤️💔
It actually broke my heart a little bit this week when I was told that due to my current health I wouldn't be allowed to fly. My oncologist felt it was too much of a risk after recent spinal surgery, also being in the middle of radiotherapy, as well as the liver problems, pain, fragility being off treatment etc (as the landing could be bumpy). And the air balloon insurance people wouldn't give a thumbs up anymore.
So, so gutted not to go and so sad for my gorgeous girls after all of their hard work. I also know that some other gorgeous souls had contacted to do the same mentioning no names (Josie😘) Thank you SO much! I hope you girls know how much it means to me, you light up my world with sunshine! And it may not surprise you to know that I am determined to get these bone tumours stable, get on some more treatment and i WILL still get in that basket through the clouds and give it a big FAT bucket list tick one day! And then I'm sure it will be even more special.
Jake knew how disappointed I felt, and my sickness has reached a really nasty level, and so because (like the girls) he's no ordinary human (but an actual DREAMBOAT) he booked us and OF COURSE Molly into a hotel for the night near Devon so all 3 of us could escape, be together and rest for 24hours. It's absolutely stunning and Molly has been treated like a queen!! Just perfect.
Im such a lucky girl. ❤️. #bucketlist #hotairballoon #nevergiveup
