The world doesn't stop...

It's hard to think that the world doesn't stop just because Jess is no longer with us. I was speaking to my friend Sarah Milne on the phone the other day and something rang true to me... because I didn't see Jess everyday as she lived far away it almost feels as if she is still there. I think it will hit me more when we have to say our final goodbyes on Wednesday.

It was left to me to sort the flowers out for Jess (I am surprised I was trusted haha!) this was good as it made me feel like I was being useful and doing something to help. The flowers are from myself, Emily, Sarah, Matt and Pops. I chose a white heart with a pink J in the middle and pink ribbon around the edge of the heart... it had to be pink, nothing less for Jess!

On one of my blog posts about Jess the lovely Danielle made a comment... we got chatting over twitter and email and I said I would like some custom made jewelry to wear to Jess' funeral, perhaps with Jess initials on. Danielle came up trumps and my lovely jewelery arrived in the post... it's pink of course! I will take pictures and post them up soon... theres a ring, many sets of earrings... 2 broaches and a necklace! Jess would have loved them!

Other things that have been happening... I have got myself a Job interview at a local nursery, its actually the same nursery that my neice goes to! I am hoping that goes well, I need to get myself into work or I'll get bored! I am also going to be going down to london to stay with the lovely Charlotte Hogg from Engage First and she is going to teach me all she knows about networking, social media and campaigning... and I am sure a few cocktails will be consumed as well!

I have also signed myself up for a 250ft high, 100ft long zipwire from the top of the Royal Liverpool Hospital, to raise money for their eye unit and Linda McCartney Centre this will take place on either the 20th or 21st of March and I will let you know how you can sponsor me nearer the time if you would like to!

So I think that is it for now... I probably won't update now until after Jess' funeral... please keep her and her family in your thoughts this week and please sign the Organ Donor Register in Jess' memory! Thank you x
