Sebastian has been learning circus skills at school, and enjoys juggling. I set some challenges, which got us laughing.

Juggling Challenges

How many times can you juggle three balls when:

You are standing on both feet?
You are standing on both feet tiptoes?
You are standing on both feet heels?
You are standing on your left foot only?
You are standing on your right foot only?
You are walking backwards?
You have one eye closed?
You are standing on your left foot tiptoes only?
You are standing on your right foot tiptoes only?
You are balancing a satsuma on your head?


I am facing more complications from MND. This is so hard. Thanks to the carers and nurses. Keep coming with your common sense.

The book version of The Fantastic Race is out now. Brilliant team Andrew and Sarah. Done against tight deadlines.


Great visits from my parents, Phil, Iain, Simon. I’ve asked again at the golf club for someone to be with Sebastian over the coming years. I pray for a positive answer.

Our day to day help is down to a hard core. Thank you. MND can go on and some local people drop away. Thanks for what you did.

Cracking atmosphere at the West Ham match, which restored hope in my bet.

Happy 11th birthday, Sebastian.

Valentina showed me the incredible needlework for our Advent Fair stall. I am so grateful for the school, which offers such a range of experiences.

Jane, thanks for everything in these most extreme circumstances. Incredible.
