Goodwood Revival

Dad and I took ourselves off to the famed

Goodwood revival race meeting this weekend.


Sadly I have an AWFUL chest infection, so am out of breath,

lethargic, and really LOW. But I dragged my sorry a*se out 

of bed and loaded up the motorhome and we left thursday

afternoon (intending to stay until Monday to see it all !!)

"Typical Matt" it was all a bit improvised, and less than organised,

but we got our tickets sorted, camping site booked, food stashed,

and off we trotted!


After 2 days at it, I threw in the towel and we came

home Sundayas I just couldn't breath, and the walking

was going to put to much strain on my poor old ticker

I felt...(No point getting this far post TX and kicking

the bucket just to see a few extra cars?!!)


It was an AMAZING weekend though with some AMAZING cars

to behold.


The costumes people wore were almost as impressive! I had a suit

for every day and got a lot of laughs and pictures taken of me !

(Not sure if it was people laughing WITH me or

laughing AT me though?!)


Either way I don't care!!


Here are just a few pics to give you an idea of what went on...

Sold the Black bike...


Been keeping fit, wrestling this bad boy!





(Lovely thing, would recomend any bikers amongst you

to try one!)



My fantastic helper "Helps" me warm it up, and sometime

he "Rides" it up the drive a few feet!!






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!....
