My Kids were Skaters and Stuff

These are hard times and we don’t know what the future holds – but we never have anyway. The good news for me last week is Panda and Vicky had their second baby ‘a boy’ and we are so thrilled for them. My youngest son is a god father to their first. I was so emotional when I found out.

My youngest son during his time in Blackpool pushed his boundaries and structured so many great little designs in Blackpool, working closely with Blackpool Council and the planning department, as we had plans drawn up specifically for the project. Now he returns to Leeds and has the confidence to build furniture for landlords so that tenants have comfy rooms in accordance with health and safety. He has his wings.

When my kids were very young they used to build skate ramps and loads of other stuff out of old bits of wood. They became semi pro sk8’rs and I was so proud. I would drive them all over The Midlands to enter comps. It wasn’t winning or anything like that. I was taking part, the music, the sound of wheels hitting the ply wood. I loved it and it became a huge part of my social life. Eventually they got sponsored and didn’t have to pay for their clothes etc. (This saved me money … lol).

I have been working hard. You can never totally switch off. There’s always problems but we have to remind ourselves each of us is only responsible for our own journeys and to be thankful for what we have going on. Education is so important, to keep learning and progressing as individuals and there is education everywhere. We just have to think about ideas and progress with people around us who are like-minded. Bitterness and jealousy are worthless emotions. I had to add a photo of this woman. She is one hell of a determined person and has made me laugh so much today. Josie is Dutch. She is from The Netherlands. Has a muslim son who lives in Brazil, he owns a hotel too.
