Our June holiday!

Lewis and I had a lovely little holiday down in the South of England for just over a week in June. We got to catch up with lots of our friends, and we had a really great time! The photos are all a bit mixed up though! Above is Lewis with Nathan (www.caringbridge.org/visit/nathanbovell). We met up with Nathan and his (gorgeous) mum Anna towards the end of our holiday. We thought the boys looked cool in their matching chairs! Lew is making eyes at Anna while Nathan sleeps. I havent put a photo of Anna on because she's just too good looking - Lew was mesmerised! On the way home on the last day of our holiday, we visited Caz and Declan in Luton (www.caringbridge.org/visit/declankelly). Caz made me the most scrumptious lunch (again!), and surprised me with the most awesome birthday gift (yes it was my 39th birthday on Saturday). Here is Lew making eyes at Caz, ANOTHER blonde lady! He has cream on his face as he got sand burn and it made his face sore. Its all fine now! Here is a gorgeous photo of Declan with his big bro Kyle and mad mummy Caz who is my best friend in the universe!
On the Monday of our holiday we drove down to West Sussex to stay at Butlins (hmmm no comment, we didnt like it). As we had a good drive down, we went across to Pagham to visit Aunty Nicola, Uncle Lee and Evie who were staying there in a caravan. We used to go there every year when we were children, so it was so cool to visit the old haunts, like this ancient church. In the caravan, Evie was let loose with the camera and took some fab pics ... above and below! While we were at Butlins (Bognor) we met up with postpals posties Niki, Kevin and Noah. We have been chatting with Niki for a while now so it was really special to finally meet up properly! And Noah is scrumptious and Lew adored him! Here is Lew with his Iggle Piggle which Niki, Kev and Noah gave him as a gift - THANK YOU! We miss you and hope you are having a great time in the US and that we can see you again soon! Niki lives in Brighton so we had a wonderful day there! Below is scrumptious Noah! See how mixed up these pics are! These photos are back at Pagham on the Monday!
On our way down to Bognor, we spent a wonderful weekend with my old school friend Mary and her 3 wonderful children. Below is Mary and my dad (Grandad Skinny) preparing the bbq food! It was delicious!
Here is Aime, and her brother James. Here is James again! Lewis ADORED James! Here is Lewis with his mad mum (me!). On the Sunday, we went to Bushy Park (near Hampton Court Palace) and played in the sandpit. It was great for Lew to experience this, and he loved watching the children playing too. Unfortunately though it was very windy and this is where he got his sand blasted face!
Below is Katie, Mary's eldest daughter. Here is Aime collecting sand! On the walk back home we had ice creams, yummm!
Here is Lewis with me and Mary. We really had a wonderful weekend and cant wait to go back down to see them again! Here is Lewis with me and Grandad Skinny! Mary and Lew (below) chilling out! Below, Lew is getting his legs buried in the sand!
Back in Mary's garden, James played BOO with Lewis and a jumper! Lew loved it!
It was great to learn that Mary and the children are great CHELSEA fans!!! Below ... we arrived at Mary's quite late on the Friday evening and the children were all in bed. Lew went straight to bed too. So in the morning, he was very excited to be woken up by Katie and Kitkat!
Grandad Skinny lives very close to Mary, so we went round to visit with him and his cat! We had a wonderful holiday, Lewis loved seeing everybody and getting lots of attention!

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
