From England To France

Balloons. Streamers. Party Popping Things. We made it! Yesterday evening, around 6pm, my target reached 100%. Thank you. A glass of champagne was had (well, maybe two…)

But now for the moving moment - imagine me sitting quietly, surveying the scene, maybe slightly the worse for wear. And what I’m thinking is that when I write the book of my life (and this isn’t it – this is just a small but significant part and I hope you’re going to like it). But when I do – the 263 people that helped me bring 21 Miles into the world will have a really special place in it. Your faith and love made it happen and your names, every one of them, will always be written on my heart. Sorry if that sounds a bit over emotional but you’ve got to remember that I’ve just had two glasses of champagne. (Well actually it was English sparkling wine. But don’t worry France, thanks to 263 Wonderful People I’m on my way over again…) All my love Jessica x
