People who made it possible........

Now that I've let you all know where I was for my surprise visit, it's time to thank those that made it possible.

Big thanks go to Rab, James & Leanne, Jacqui, Mum & Dad, Nayla...without your help I couldn't have done this trip.

Jacqui came up every morning at 7am to sort out Dj and make sure he got to school on time, had breakfast and was organised.
Mum and Dad made sure he had someone to come home to after school. Mum also helped him to complete his geography project which turned out brilliantly and has put him in line for a 'house' prize.
Rab organised the place so that uniform was ready, homework was completed on time and kept things running - as well as going to work for 6 days without a break.
James & Leanne took Dj for the first weekend so that Rab could work on a function without worrying about Dj at home.
Jacqui and Nayla sorted out the following Saturday for Rab whilst he, again, had to work.

So sending HUGE thanks to you all for your ongoing support. Some things would not be possible without you guys

Much luv xxxx
