About a week ago I had a lovely surprise. I was contacted by an award winning media company called Raw TV. They want to use one of my videos in an up coming Channel 4 Documentary Film about the British weather in 2015. To say I’m over the moon is an understatement:)
Back in March 2015 I lost my beautiful Mum, she passed away in my arms after a very long battle. I felt so lost without her. I lost my best friend of many years too, he didn’t die, he just became cruel beyond belief and after putting up with his constant dramas over the years I just decided I had enough of him and his idea of friendship was so far removed from mine and so I walked away and never looked back. He blogged about what an Arse he had been and admitted what a complete b*****d he had been to me and how sorry he was etc etc yawn yawn zzzzz but too little too late. When I had my heart attack he turned away and in fact whenever a difficult situation arose in my life, as it does for all of us, he would disappear until the problem was over or I was better etc. That my friends is what you call a Fairweather Friend. He was there when life was good and used to do this amazing vanishing act during difficult times. It would have been the easiest thing in the world to do to turn and hit the bottle, but I didn’t, I did the exact opposite. I gave up alcohol altogether & I took up a new hobby.
I set up a You Tube channel and started making little Nature Videos. Nothing complicated, I just film little bits of nature whenever and wherever I visit places of nature. I took up photography and I love learning new skills. I can’t get to a lot of the places I want to get to because of my disabilities but I do my best and I’m very grateful for that. I’m thankful for my little car that gets me to the lovely places I visit on my good days. I think I have made around 80 or 90 little videos now and now a bit of one of them is going to be on TV whoo hoo:))
