I love my husband because… (no9)

24 Sep

He lets me take silly little photos all the time even though I know he’s not the biggest fan!

I am a bit of a freak when it comes to instagram-ing my life. 644 photos so far and counting! Dave is honest with me quite a lot about it, sometimes I get my phone confiscated (hehe!), sometimes he has a little moan but what I love about him is that most of the time he lets me get on with it. He’ll even pose in photos for me if he’s in a good mood. Thank you husband for being
so understanding… long may the photographic memories be stored!

 

there really is a Fordham Park in Deptford!

p.s. if you really want to see all 644 photos my instagram account is emilyfordham – I like to keep things straightforward!

p.p.s. if you do visit expect mainly photos of baking and cross-stitching. Just preparing you.

I did it… I graduated!

20 Sep

cheesy grins all round!

Yesterday I celebrated graduating from Goldsmiths, University of London with a First Class BA(Hons) in Media and Communication.

I never thought I’d really do it… find a subject I’d want to study, finish a whole degree, get married in the process… and I NEVER thought I’d get a first. But somehow it happened and although I’m one happy bunny that it is all over with I also look back on the last 3 years as life-changing and wonderful!

I have made some beyond incredible friends, ones I know I’ll have for life, learned a lot about myself and been blessed to work with some amazing people in the Development and Alumni team. So thank you Goldsmiths. I know we’ve had our ups and downs but we made it. And actually now I am quite sad to have to say goodbye.

standard.

Thanks for the many moments I will treasure forever.

the fordhams at the paralympics

9 Sep

our tickets, a happy husband and an amazing evening

Thank you in-laws. Thank you so much for giving us your Paralympic wheelchair basketball semi-final tickets. We are so grateful! After watching the Olympics take over our city I began to feel quite jealous towards anyone lucky enough to go to any event. Then along came the in-laws with tickets for us and we know longer had to watch from the sofa but got to be a part of it… and watch team GB do their amazing stuff.

The whole experience on Thursday at the North Greenwich Arena was wonderful. I’d heard that the Gamesmakers (volunteers) were exemplary but never did I imagine that they would make me feel so welcome and walk away with a huge smile on my face. The atmosphere was incredible. We got to see 2 games (both semi-finals) the first between USA and Australia and the second between GB and Canada. I’ve never seen basketball live before (let alone wheelchair basketball) and I must admit I’m not the biggest sports fan but I totally enjoyed myself, they showed these little videos to explain how the game worked and filled the spare time with ‘kiss cam’ and other wonderfully fun and silly little things.

Singing the national anthem with the other thousands of people in the arena made my evening but the highlight had to be watching these incredible athletes do their stuff. Their courage, humility and perseverance is beyond amazing. Thank you for giving us a night that I will always remember!
