Hey guys ! Its me again.
3 months already! I can't believe how fast the time is going.

I have just come back from a few days at Knowsley safari park, which Alice won for me in a competition.  I had the job of a junior keeper. It was actually really good and i learnt loads about animals, although it did include a lot of mucking out of the animals, including the lions, elephants, Rhinos and Meerkats. We did things such as making a zebra out of cardboard and filling it with food and then putting it in with the lions, which was very funny to watch. Then we filled a log with fruit and meal worms (i had to get someone else to do the meal worms, bit of a wimp when it comes to insects) and we went in the cage with the Meerkats and watched them search for it.
We have also had some families come and stay in the caravan and from the feedback that we got back it sounded like they had a good and fun time in the lakes, which i was so happy to hear. There are lots of local businesses supporting us and it's nice that they are letting our families go to their attraction.
I went on a 20 mile walk around Coniston Water last week and well, I was a bit stiff the next day. At lunch time i got an email through saying that theres only 30 days left until the big walk and i have to say, there's going to be a lot of last minute training walks because i haven't done that much. Going to make an effort now though, going to try and get on a walk or the treadmill every other day.

I have been shopping quite a lot recently and can't wait for summer (if we have one). There is some really nice things in river island at the moment i found and got some tops and a bikini (YAY) from there.
In my last blog i posted about going to see one direction with my friend and i can now say it was amazing, one of the best nights and i swear Niall waved at me :/ I had a lot of fun. Thank you Emily for choosing to take me.

I hope everyone had a good Easter !

  9. Thank you for continuing to share your life's experiences, Milly. I feel I have a vested interest, as I did everything I could, in my own little way, to help publicize Alice's plight. As much as her loss hurt me, I can almost imagine the toll it must have taken upon you. Thank you for staying strong and posting as you can. You are a wonderful young lady with a bright future ahead - keep us informed if you so desire!

  12. Hi Milly,

    I had been following Alice's blog since her bucket list made international news. I had stopped checking it and happened to see today that she passed in January. I just wanted to post to let you know that Alice really touched people all over the world and it was evident in her writing how much she loved you and your family. It makes me sad to hear that she is gone, but I really marvel at the impact that your family has had on people. I know that you will keep her memory alive and continue to make the world a better place.

  13. I just found this blog and i want to thank you for continuing to write to us and make the world open their eyes and become more aware and appreciative. :)

    Kili sounds amazing. Imagine when you're right at the top, that feeling. That's going to be the best feeling in the world.

    You're awesome and what you and your family and Alice have done is inspiring.

    I might make a bucket list now, but only if you keep us updated of your adventures!

    Keep on keeping on. <3
