The last one sounds the toughest but most rewarding, Ash.

Its great to read these lists.

You all have wonderful ambitions & I hope you all get to do everything on your lists. Make sure your families know about them too. It can help them to know what to give you for b'days & Xmas or just because they love ya & can. Even if its only a few quid toward one of your dreams. Every bit helps.

Hi Ashley,

I met Simon Webbe a couple of years ago. Blue did a concert in Bahrain and then afterwards, him and Lee came to one of the local bars, JJ's. It was very weird but people just treated them like normal guys and Simon collared me on the dance floor! It was a bit embarrassing as everyone was watching!! I was waiting for Duncan to come in as he was my favourite but the guys said he'd gone back to the hotel as they had an early flight to Dubai the next day. Shame!

Hi Ashley,

Sorry to hear about your mum being in hospital. Before my mum was diagnosed with HD she was sectioned a few times in the psychiatric ward of our local hospital and I still remember 15 years on how awful it was for her as she was clearly not mental and didn't need to be there. I hope your mum is getting good care.

I like the idea of a few of the things on your list! Dog sledding is one of the things I hope to combine with a future trip to Fairbanks, Alaska to see the Northern Lights although there are a few places closer to the UK where it can be done (and also where the Northern Lights can be seen). You sound like a bit of a daredevil! Good luck with fulfilling your wish list. Don't really know the circumstances with your dad but I have a few issues with mine from the past and it is very hard to forgive but once you do you'll feel a whole lot better than carrying all that hurt around with you. Easier said than done, I know!

Hi Frankie,

Life in Saudi is pretty good most of the time despite what you might hear on the news! I actually feel safer here than in the UK sometimes. I love the weather (except August) and the outdoors lifestyle. The biggest downside is not being allowed to drive outside the compound but I can drive in the compound where I live. It's a huge place, about 20 square miles, so you do need a car.

DH ... yeah, a group trip around the world would be great. I think everyone on here deserves a holiday. Seriously though, when my place in Egypt is ready in January, I have 6 weeks a year of personal use and the rest of the time it is rented out on my behalf. I would probably only use a week myself and then maybe my Dad and my brother would take another week each and after that I would be more than happy to give it to anybody on here for a week who needs to take a break! It would be a great way to help out those of you caring for family who need a break but might not necessarily have the funds to go abroad.

The one I didn't put on my original list is probably the most important one of all.

I would like to see my little girl grow up into a happy and well adjusted woman. If that happens nothing else matters.
