My FRIEND LEIGH

Good afternoon every one,The picture above is of my friend Leigh ,who lives in the Rhondda Valleys in South Wales ,we often chat on IM ,I know alot of you already know him ,but he feels  as though no one is reading his journal ,so I'm reintroducing him to J-Land ,I have mislaid my fan ,the one I put on my journal the day before yesterday,Well if you care to go over to Leighs journal ,you will see he has borrowed it to cool his pet Lion down ! ;>)http://journals.aol.co.uk/edwardssoapy/LeighsWorld/

Leigh is one plucky young man ,with Cerebral Palsy,which is not curable,there are three classifications ,and Leigh has Ataxia,which affects his hips and legs he used to get around in his 'lecy' wheel ,now he is mobile with the aid of one stick ,he finds it hard to do things like do up buckles and shoe laces ,and writes slowly ,but none of this stands in the way of the range of things Leigh gets up too ,see from the picture he is sailing ,and I understand he makes a mean lasagne ,His motto is 'Dont judge a book by its cover ' Well leigh mate your cover is blown !....We dont  !all we judge you by is what you are telling us on your journal ,which is always an interesting read ,colourful and newsy .I know Leigh has some exciting news to share ,Iam so pleased for you mate and havent forgotten to put those hints on you know what into an E-Mail for you ,Leigh is my buddy sometimes he calls me 'Aunty Jan' ,another time I'm his 'Granny Jan ' but most of all he's my friend ,so please give him a visit ,and tell him I asked you to call.....With love  and    Jan xx

Leigh does seem remarkably plucky.  I will stop by and pay him a visit.  Think he'll send some lasagne across the pond?  One of my favorite meals.  xxx  Chris

Hi Jan,
My name is Sybil. I live in a small village near Bath  called BOX. This is the first time I have ever read anyones BLOG. ( I only recently joined aol's broadband and am having fun searching through all the bits and pieces. I am not up to Blogging yet !!  When I see how talented you are I doubt if I ever wil. However it;s nice to see how others pass their days.  I have tried to get on to Leigh's blog however they say it isn't there ? I even cut and pasted but still no luck.
If you ever have time you can drop me a line sybilsybil45@aol.com
Thanks for an entertaining half hour. I hope to pop in again soon. (If I ever find you again !!
Love Sybil
