TOP day out yestrday!

Dad and I were the guests of Bentley, and were SO lucky

to get a factory tour (And tasty lunch! - You know me and my stomach!)

HUGE thanks to Claire at Bentley Birmingham for organising it all and

for driving us up in such style! Thier factory is awsome and the work that goes into

hand stitching the leather, selecting the walnuts/woods, and the engines....Don't

get me started!! WOW!! (Twin turbo W12!)


Also BIG thanks to Simon Uglow at Bentley for sparing his time and giving us such

an informative, and interesting trip around thier state of the art facility!

Sadly, no pics were allowed, so you'll just have to imagine!   ;-)




Sunny Bath......

Middle of October and HOT sunny day!

Siezed the opportunity to take Jane into

Bath for a nice walk around, and lunch!

I ate a little to much and had a "moment of relaxation"

when gravity won its battle with my eyelids! Sleeping in

a park?! (All I lacked was a dog and a bottle of cider?!)

About Matt.

My name's Matt. I was born with a congenital heart defect which hampered me in my youth, and sadly became a terminal conditon recently, and beyond the (amazing) care of the BRI-Bristol Heart team.

In 2008, my condition deteriorated, to a point I was happy to see Xmas 2008. I had prepared to die.

Then in January 2009, a late night phone call from QEH-Hospital Birmingham changed my world, when they offered me a heart transplant, if I could get there pronto!!

6 months on, after a rocky start, I am still alive, thanks to them!

Read on to see how my new life is taking shape, and my adventures to date!....
