Surprise of a Lifetime for My Sister-in-Law (We Made the News in the UK!)

by Amelia Old

With all of this writing and sharing my experiences in Bishops Lydeard….we ended making the news in the UK! I was absolutely delighted that the Somerset County Gazette shared the story of me surprising my sister in law-JoAnne.  Check it out by clicking on the photo below.


A couple of weeks ago, I shared the story of surprising my sister in law at her home days before her big Charity Event. You can read the post HERE.   I am so grateful the Gazette decided to share this as JoAnne will be running in the London Marathon THIS weekend! All of her hard work will pay off in a few days when she completes a major goal….all the while raising money for Children with Cancer UK. Want to sponsor JoAnne in her efforts? Visit

And here’s the video I originally posted that the Gazette mentioned in their article.

It’s amazing the power of newspapers. While I was in Poland a journalist interviewed me about a story about the differences in Christmas in Poland and Australia. For the next 3 months I was never able to sit alone and drink beer because everyone knew who I was and wanted to practice their English.

Such a great post <3 Hope that one day I could have a chance to visit England. I love this country because of its historical architectures and I`m also a big fan of Holmes, too. I also have some England friends, they are very nice and friendly. I`m sure that my experience there will be one of the most memorable moments in my life. Thank you
