On Saturday my lovely hubby Martin did a 12,000ft freefall tandem skydive to raise money for St.Wilfred's Hospital which is where Mum was looked after during her final days before she passed on 17th December 2008.
He managed to raise £450 for the Hospice and i am so proud of him. Here are some pics i would like to share.

Martin all togged up. He looks like an extra from the "Cone Head" Movie!!!
A pic with the trainer called Dave, he was a really cool guy!!!
All boarded up!!!
Too late to bottle out now!
Definitely too late to bottle out now!
Just going from freefall to parachute
Martin & Dave
Yay!!! they made it!
Hope he did not keep his eyes closed all the time!!!

I know that Mum was watching over us on Saturday & sharing the day with us. When we got back to the car & started driving off one of Mum's songs came on the radio, Leanne Rymmes "How do i Live Without You". That was her sign to let us know.



  1. Fab photos Clare!

    Well done Martin, what a great time he must have had! I cannot believe you want to do it - you must be crackers!!

    Besides, just look at the gear youve go to wear to do it! Its not very 'ladylike'!! lol!

  4. Oh bless! You have one very brave (or slightly mad) husband hunny, but well done on raising so much money for such a good cause. I know your mum was watching over him for you. Sxxx

  5. Yay for Mr Conehead! What a superhero indeed! He's definitely a 'keeper' Miss Clare.
    What a wonderful gesture, he must have been so very fond or your beautiful Mum.

Lovely that he did it in memory of your mum, I am sure she was watching over you both with a smile. Lovely piccie of her. The cupcake stand that I have my martha stewart punches on is from a little home accessory store in Leigh-on-Sea near where I live, its not a chain or anything but next time I pop by I will see if they have any more and let you know. Have a lovely week! Tracey xx
