have something embarrassing to tell you. I can't ride a bike! Well I couldn't.
So when I arrived at the Maldives and we were shown to our water villa that was
miles away from the centre of the resort we were asked, or rather told; 'you
both like riding a bike' I was less than impressed! But being on my honeymoon
and with my attitude that anything is possible, I decided I would try it. But
decided I would give up if I didn't like it.
jetties which the water villas are on have no hand rails so if you're falling
off your bike you are potentially falling into the sea with your bike behind
you. So on I climbed to my bike, scared as anything but Lewis telling me that I
could definitely do it! I had a go and then stopped as soon as I wobbled and
didn't want to get back on, but on I got and the more I rode my bike the more
confident I got! Dare I say that I actually went for a bike ride this morning
and enjoyed it. I text my mum straight away to tell her... I could ride a
back now my whole attitude had been really silly! Of course I can ride a bike
everyone can. As the children go back to school this week it got me to thinking
just how scary new experiences are, learning new things and fear of the
unknown! As an adult these experiences get less and less but for children they
are learning new things and having new experiences every day, especially at the
start of the new term!
Little Stars too, getting up on stage, doing LAMDA exams, so hats off to all
our little ones at the start of this new term, let's just hope like me once
they've tried it they love it! And let's celebrate their achievements no
matter how small!
