Of the Guardian Angels of good men!

My DH, Nick, is away for the weekend and I cannot understand why this should mean I am busier than ever, but it’s a fact! He left last night for our 1st anniversary Reels on Wheels Fishing Festival in Cambridgeshire. It’s about 7 hours from where we live so he left at about 11pm last night. He is so lucky to have arrived in one piece – I am far from ready to be widowed – as he had a blowout on the motorway travelling at around 70 mph! (120-130kph)… and here’s the tyre that blew…

The wheel of misfortune

Well, I think he had a Guardian Angel last night, don’t you? Luckily, there were 2 police officers on the motorway who saw what happened and they kindly went to see if he was okay, which he was, but very shaken up. He called the RAC out and the policemen waited with him, chatting about fishing, took some flyers and wished him Bon Voyage! The spare tyre fitted to the Buddy Bus (our motorhome/RV), he travelled on to the venue and phoned me this morning with his news.

He’s been calling and emailing me photos all day to update the forum and his blog – all done! – and I’ve been doing HIS work on a site rebuild with DD’s help, while he makes nice with all the people who are attending the FishFest! However, I am very proud of the display – complete with Powerpoint presentation – which they’ve put up in the Marquee for everyone to see. Tomorrow I expect it will also hold the prizes, generously donated by many supoorters of Reels on Wheels UK Ltd. It warms my heart.


And here’s a pic of my man himself beside the Buff display in front of the RV – almost in the ‘buff’!! 😉 Sarah from the company Buff saw a photo of my DH in The Telegraph newspaper and noticed he’s a Buff-fan, so she kindly offered to manufacture a Buff for ROW for us to sell to raise funds. We were delighted and happily took a consignment of 50 (free) and have sold a good 25 of them! They are available to buy from Buff’s online store too and we get the profit as a donation! Grand, isn’t it?!

Nick - very Buff!

Awww, bless him! Drives me nuts, but I wouldn’t be without him! ❤ ❤ ❤ that man… 🙂

  1. Wow! He does have a guardian angel watching over him. Look at that tire. I am sure you are exhausted from all that work. Took me a while to figure out what the ❤ was, but finally I got it. Glad he is ok and you are ok with all this.

  2. Anna – it was much worse last yer when I was busy with publicity and hunting down PR and media contacts… LOL! At least this year we have a reputation and lots of people have heard about Nick!! I try and stay in the background whenever possible… or even better, at home! After all, we still have the teenager, dogs,cat and parrot to think of! Never a dull moment, eh?! 😉
