When in hospital granddad brought me a paper everyday, sat with me & kept me company. in some random conversation napoleons horse come up & tried to remember its name. fella in the ward piped up & told us it was marengo (after the battle) & curiosity looked into it, fully expecting him to be in paris only to find we have him in london. it’s a fascinating history (check it out) and this then became my objective when i was healthy to see him & thank my granddad. we added a few bits in and had a great day and appreciate how great london is. #armymusuem#guardsmusuem#london#marengo#napoleon#coldstreamguards#london#family#chelsea
I walk past this nearly everyday to work and have never noticed it. 100 years on yesterday and rightly remembered. what a wonderful thing and words to remember his gallantry and service. “greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” #fearnaught#cecilsewell#greenwich#proud#grateful
Life can be shit, sometimes you have days where everything is good. 28th august 2018 is one of those.
my wonderful mums birthday, lunch at the ivy and good news from my consultant. had the pleasure of giving out the thank you cards i promised to the doctors & the ward with some gifts as a small token of the enormous gratitude i have for their care. and a good chat with sister in sydney @areesyyy christmas would be fun 😀#todaywasagoodday#ivycafeblackheath#lewishamhospital#family
After 27 days in hospital i have finally made it home (to mum & dads at least). a nasty infection attacked my joints & knocked me for six. can only say how amazing the doctors & nurses of lewisham hospital have been. god bless the nhs & the service they provide. moreover, you get to appreciate those people around you who really care. family, friends and messages all deeply appreciated and kept me going. will be remembered. treasure your health & those around. been a strange july 2018 here’s to the rest of summer! #cheers#lewishamhospital#onthemend#lovetoall
