I know him from somewhere... - In the name of Thiago - Day 291
I know it's boring to keep saying this but watching the news tonight made me feel proud - there's no other way of putting it. I've done my level-headed best to ensure that as many people as possible know about my boy and just what a remarkable little chap he was. And it's like I said in the interview today, it really is all for Thiago - he's my driving force, the brave little boy who is helping me go from lightweight soft touch to strong-willed and determined. That is Thiago's legacy - and I'm going to keep going.
This is the shot they used of me this evening. I managed to shoehorn the charity T-shirt in there (thank you Rob - they've truly had some tremendous use and exposure!) and made sure the photos of my two beautiful children were on display. If this fundraiser was a campaign at work it would be the best campaign that anyone had ever run but this is far more important than that, which is why of course people want to know about it.
I'm going to keep my fundraiser open for a few more weeks, while I decide what the best course of action is. That might be getting involved with another event, who knows. So, do please keep bunging in a few quid if you can. Tonight's appearance on Midlands Today has certainly resulted in a few more donations, which has certainly put a smile on my face. Let's hope I can keep it there for a little while.
