♥ Prom Dresses ♥ Jasper ♥ Camping ♥

oh dear, I started writing this and cos I didn't publish it, it's out of date so I better update it and then you'll know everything.
We've had loads of charity events this last month - TEAM ALICE did so well in the K2B and C2B, we had three ladies from Dunnerholme Golf Club who walked the Cumbrian Coastal Way which is 45 miles, Kendal College held a beauty day, my Uncle Gary did the K2B AGAIN (mad Uncle), the Barrow Raiders walked from Barrow to Workington which is 50 miles and Ulverston Victoria High school held a non uniform day for us. Thank you everyone :)
We've all been really busy. Just after the K2B, my whole family visited BBC Radio Cumbria in Carlisle which was really interesting (and they had nice cakes). That following weekend, I went to Promise Bridal in Barrow and they found me a beautiful Prom dress - I actually felt pretty and my BFFs were there.

I had a visit to Alder Hey and my consultant let me have more drugs so hopefully I'll actually get to my prom. Later that week Dave from Cumbria Police came with three of his dogs and they were all lovely but I fell in love with Jasper. Bailey sounded like he wanted to eat us until he came out of the cage and then he was like a teddy bear and Maddy was just really cute and wanted to play with her ball! Dave also presented me with a cheque for my charity so thank you for that. On Sunday we went to Leven's Hall and they are going to be supporting our families. I really enjoyed it there - the house and gardens are beautiful and they let me ride around in an electric scooter. One of my favourite bits was meeting their labradors! My mum was desperate to sense the ghost in the bedroom - strange mother!

On Monday last week, the BBC came and did some filming with Milly (she's at 7min, 25sec) and then the next day, Mum took Milly down to GOSH. She had quite a busy time in London with appointments at hospital and fitting other things in and they went to look at our new charity 'By Biehl' bracelet too. It's gorgeous with a leather strap and a silver pod bead with a sunshine on it, like the sunshine from our charity logo. My mug is still available HERE at Emma Bridgewater or at Murray's chemist in Barrow. We also have charity wristbands, Mabel mascots, 'Bold beanie' hats (I wear and love these), plus t-shirts and sweatshirts coming and they'll all be on our website soon. 
They got back late on Thursday night and then all had to go for speech day at Milly's school the next morning. Then, we all went camping for the weekend and only got back last night. So now mum has bags from last week in London and bags and tents from this week, all over the hallway! And we are going down to London AGAIN tomorrow! I was sent a VIP ticket to the Rays of Sunshine concert at the Royal Albert Hall and mum managed to get a ticket for Milly too, so we're all going down until the weekend. I can't wait to see Leona Lewis performing and also JLS who Milly and me met when they were in X Factor (don't we look young) and I love the dance groups that are going to be there too. I think we're also meeting up with Emma Forbes for a little bit more cake (LOL).

I've been really interested watching all the Jubilee celebrations. Milly got a really good book about the Queen and we both spent ages looking through it. I enjoyed most of the concert but parts of it were strange. I loved the video from when the Queen was younger and I liked Prince Charles speech.I was so impressed with the way they put all the designs onto the Palace when Madness were on (and I really enjoyed them - mum still plays their songs so I even knew some of the words). I'd like to look at the Palace and I would love to have a peek at the Olympic stadium if we can get anywhere near to it and I'm going to try to find a shop called Holly and Lil cos I want to get a posh collar for Mabel. We have a show near us every July called the North Lonsdale Show and this year, they are bringing back the dog show and it's called "Alice's Dog Show" to continue from the dog show that Cathy and Simon did for me last year. So Mabel has got to compete with the big dogs now cos she's not a puppy anymore :(
Right I'm going to bed now cos it's nearly tomorrow and I'm tired and it's a long way to London!


  1. Oh my! What a busy young lady you have been this past week or so, I don't know if me and Tin Tin could keep up with that! It all looks wonderful, and I'm very glad everything went well. I've been digging in the garden...again, and you did cross my mind this afternoon, thinking about when you were going to put up your news, I enjoy following it all! There is always so much going on! I love Leven's Hall, it is so beautiful. Have a great trip to London, looking forward to reading about it soon.

  3. Dear sweet Alice - My name is Sara and I live in the U.S.A. I have a wonderful time reading about your adventures and spend time being proud of your outlook and attitude. You are so intelligent, brave, and humble. I admire it so much.
    I'm 26 and had a struggle with acute kidney failure, leading to dialysis, and eventually a transplant. I know how lucky I am but there ate still days I feel despairing and pessimistic. I can only strive to be as fantastic as you are! Thank you for being a powerful, resourceful inspiration leaving an indelible mark on the world.

  4. You look great sweetie! I hope it was a very happy night for you!

  10. Wow Alice, you look so pretty in your prom dress!!! Good choice. I hope you'll be well enough to go. Love the shot of you and Milly too. Congrats on continuing to raise money for your charity. My mate climbed Kili in January to raise money for cancer research. She said it's not a hard climb but the altitude was really bad. She went with the same tour group your parents are going with, they're really good. Your parents will love it! Hope Mabel does well in the dog show. xx
