We were honoured to attend the Meningitis Now Christmas Carol Service at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral on 2nd December. It was a magical night and so lovely seeing familiar faces and meeting new families. Dad even gave a speech about my Meningitis story, and there were a fair few tears leaking from people eyes around us! I was very proud of Daddy, as telling my story is very hard for him, but I’m very lucky to be here and able to hear it.
I got the best surprise and early Christmas present I could ever wish for on 6th December! Gemma took me over to see Paul Leishmann in Leeds, at the London Prosthetics Clinic, and he brought out some blades for me to ‘try’. When they fit me perfectly and Gemma told me they were actually mine I was so so happy. I could walk on them straight away. They will take a lot of getting used to as they are very different to my normal everyday legs, but they are amazing! Thank you x
December was a hectic month as usual with the school Christmas fayre, Christmas bingo and the Christmas Carol concert. As I was in the school choir, we also were out visiting Nursing homes and singing at the Northwich Library.
As a family we went ice skating on Christmas Eve and then we went to the Christingle Service in our church, before heading home to get ready for Father Christmas coming. I was a very lucky boy this year and got so many wonderful presents. My best present was my Kindle and my new Legend of Zelda game for my Nintendo DS.
We wish all of our fabulous family and friends a very happy new year, and hope that 2014 brings lots of happiness x
