a brush with fame.......(well sort of)!

In the last few weeks my family and I have been on the front cover of the autumn newsletter for The Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted and taken part in a photo shoot for the Saracens Rugby team as they're trying to raise £100,000 for the Hospice (to be shown on the big screen at all Saracen's games).

However, today's little brush with fame has made me really laugh.

I had an appointment in Mount Vernon as part of my ongoing sign off for my masectomies this afternoon.  As I walked towards the little outbuilding for my appointment I saw tv cameras through the window.  Oh b****r I said out loud as the automatic doors slid open and there I am standing like a numpty watching Joe Swash (of celebrity bug eating fame) present an old man called Len a truck full of plants as a surprise for all the hard work he'd done for the hospital and hospice.  There was no getting away from the situation.  I was trapped! So whatever Mr Swash was filming, I apologise for the loud sliding door, my fat gawping chops, the squeaky door on the loo (where I tried to escape to) and lastly for walking into you continuity shot outside the main door as I left...........oops!
Well done Len!

  2. Brilliant , and read just as he was on eastenders - next your'll be walking into the queen vic! xx

  3. Hilarious! Well done on all your fund-raising though and hope all the appointments run smoothly. I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma 7 years ago which was followed by a year of chemo and radiotherapy. Thankfully I'm out of remission now and hope it all goes as smoothly as possible for you.

  4. Ha ha love it! Thanks for making me laugh on a dreary Tuesday morning! x

  5. I'm only sorry I didn't get a photo........x
