Ten years since Lyn’s first visit to Alsager

I just want to note that today marks ten years since Lyn first came to visit me at Alsager. I still remember the day vividly: I remember trundling over to campus reception in my powerchair to wait for Lyn and Zita. I was starting to get slightly worried that they weren’t showing up, and was just setting off to look for them, when a taxi came around the  corner carrying the woman who would become my partner.

That was how I met Lyn. My first real sight of her was through the back window of a Crewe taxi. It’s strange how you remember such details. The following ten years have, of course, been some of the happiest of my life. They haven’t always been  easy,  but when I think about all the incredible things which we have done  together – the 2012 Paralympics, watching Monty Python Live, going to a Star Trek convention and meeting Sir Patrick Stewart – my  mind is blown at the thought of how I could be so lucky.
