Our Friends

I am very lucky to have the luxury of some real friends. I would especially like to mention Rosalind who was witness at my wedding and who has stuck by me through the years. Her daughter Emma is also a great friend as are her husband and 3 sons and not forgetting Hollie, Alfie and Spencer! Roz's mum Elizabeth is also very very special and she cares about us alot and that is very very special. Yolanda, Stephen, Naomi, Josh and Joel have been the best friends anyone can ask for. They have been there for us through all our recent experiences and have made a long and tiring journey several times to be with us when we have needed them. Even with Joel's asthma problem (and the recent chicken pox scare!) they still have time for us and we love them! Do you all remember celebrity big brother when Preston and Chantal fell in lurv? Well thats when I met my friend Ann-Marie (in the Channel 4 CBB chat room!) and we've been great friends ever since! Ann-Marie has a wonderful family, and we were lucky enough to have them all come and join us at our wedding in August (Felixstowe to Doncaster is a very long way especially on that AWFUL road ... the A19 I think!!) and Shannon and Savannah were the most beautiful bridesmaids! We dont get to see much of each other (because of the A19 I think!!) but I know that Ann-Marie and Mike and the girls are there for us always. On our honeymoon in August, we were lucky enough to meet Hannah who Lewis (and Samuel!) fell in love with immediately! After taking Hannah on a few trips out in the car, we finally met her mother (Angela), father (Lennie) and sister (Ashley) and since then we have become great friends. Angela is the best cook in the entire world!!! And she can make me feel relaxed just by my listening to her lovely Welsh voice! At Lewis' speech and language group I also met Tobey's mum Lesley and her family. Lesley has been a great friend in the short time we have known each other and I hope we will get to know each other much better and continue to be great friends as the years go by. We are lucky to have a super group of neighbours. We made friends with Richard and Teresa when we first arrived at Lakeside and Richard and James have become firm friends - Richard was James' best man at our wedding in August! Luke, their son, was our pageboy at our wedding and he did the best job ever! Lewis ADORES Luke, but as usual, its a nightmare trying to get them in the same place at the same time! But we try! Our direct neighbours Pat and Paul have been wonderful, and its a shame that we dont get to see them more often, but of course we are all so busy it tends to be a quick hello how are you as we are getting in or out of our cars!! My wonderful friend Denise has been marvellous with her support and encouragement. She has the most wonderful children, gorgeous Millie (bridesmaid at our wedding) and Oliver and a great husband - in fact they are a great family and I am so glad we are luckily enough to know them. We are so lucky to be surrounded by such caring and supportive friends, Jane and Simon (and Georgia and Isaac), Munmun and Paulash and gorgeous Livia (and Mun makes the most scrumptious bangladeshi food yummmmmm!), Karen and Patrick and Annabelle, and of course Steve and Van and their children. Steve only just joined the Friday night crew and its already killed James off! He's banned from anymore Friday nights out this year (self imposed ban) due to the huge amount of alcohol he managed to consume this Friday night just gone by!

The Lewis Jeynes Fund

The Lewis Jeynes Fund was established to provide care and support to Lewis Jeynes and the success of the Fund has meant that we have also been able to purchase specialist equipment for other children with undiagnosed neurologically degenerative conditions in Doncaster and the UK.

Lewis and his friends around the UK all suffer from acute and undiagnosed life limiting or terminal conditions and very often specialist equipment is difficult to afford due to the changed circumstances at home. This is where the Fund can provide vital assistance to those in need. All of the proceeds of the Fund go straight towards helping Lewis, and other children and families like him and us.

Contributions should be sent to The Lewis Jeynes Fund, 15 Kentmere Drive, Doncaster, DN4 5FL or by BACS to Nat West Bank, “The Lewis Jeynes Fund” Account No. 35662565 Sort Code 60 06 39. You can also go into your local Nat West Bank and pay into the Fund over the counter.

i love you much (most beautiful darling) by e.e.cummings

i love you much (most beautiful darling), more than anyone on the earth and i like you better than everything in the sky -sunlight and singing welcome your coming although winter may be everywhere with such a silence and such a darkness, no one can quite begin to guess (except my life) the true time of year - and if what calls itself a world should have the luck to hear such singing (or glimpse such sunlight as will leap higher than high through gayer than gayest someone's heart at your each nearness) everyone certainly would (my most beautiful darling) believe in nothing but love
