I can’t believe how far we’ve come. I have lost 7 1/2 stone now and feel so much better for it. I’m much more active and feel I can tackle anything now. I’m in a much better state of health which will mean I will be able to run around after our little miracle when we make him or her. 

In less than a week my husband goes off to Greece to do his bit. Then we know that the process has really started. It’ll be all systems go then. We have a small hitch with the trains and getting him to the airport but that’s nothing for a couple of determined parents to be! 

Nearly at the starting blocks. Wish us luck and watch this space…
