I came to live in England 11 years ago because my husband is English. At that moment it was what made sense for us, as I was playing tennis and I could live in anywhere in the world and travel to tournaments.
When we met my nieces were very young. Anna was 6 months Emily was two years old. I loved the girls from the start and my husbands family became my family as it should be. Emily is now a teenager and Anna is eleven, and we love to spend time together.
All of our English family is from Suffolk and I took the opportunity of the bank holiday weekend and a ballet performance to make a vlog and show you guys a little bit of our routine with the ones we love deeply.
I am very happy to share with you the activities we did over the weekend.
As you probably know I am an ambassador for Parallel Global, formerly Parallel London. Parallel is growing & spreading to other cities. If you don’t know Parallel Global it is a fully inclusive set of races for all ages and abilities with no cut off times. Participants can choose between a 10K, 5K, 1K, 100m, 3K walk (new) or the Super-Sensory 1k and take part in a festival of inclusive activities.
For the first two years it took place in the Olympic Park in London and this year it will be announced soon. It has just been announced that Parallel Glasgow will take place on the 2nd September in George Square.
It is a fun day, where family and friends get together to do some activities and enjoy the festival. There is also the opportunity to try different sports and activities. You should check it out at their website http://www.parallellifestyle.com It is a true celebration of diversity and inclusivity.
Hi guys. This video gives you an insight into my visit to Naidex, Europe’s biggest disability trade show. Watch me judge the Changing Lives competition, view an accessible motorhome, try a wheelchair that allows me to stand up and much more. I was wearing Peter Twiss jacket.
