Hello darling , Just watched the video ……….awesome !!!!! Fantastic Russ, really tear jerking for us both. Whilst in Toulon I told Christoff about your Yukon kayaking race. He was very impressed and responded with the comment that you would be able to kayak again in the future if you wanted to. . You were lying in a semi coma on life support at the time. I prayed that he was right . Fingers crossed I said to myself and here you are …..well done you. That’s absolutely marvellous. You have made it happen with the help of Terry I know . How did it feel ? Did you really believe that it really was happening or did you think that you might be dreaming the whole scenario ?? Wonderful. Are you watching the rugby ? Amazing score for Wales. Pity it was against 14 men , silly man. Will Ireland win ? Am watching Brian O Driscoll , such a charming and modest man . Hope Ireland win, he has earned over the years an amazing final game don’t you think ? Can’t wait to see you Russ. I’ll try not to hug you too hard . All my love mum xxxxxxx Ps would you like a cake or are you on a strict eating regime ?
