Also in October 2010 I was voted one of FHM’s Top 10 High Street Honeys out of over 15,000 entries.
I submitted self taken snap shots for the Plymouth Calendar Girls Competition in May 2009. Over 350 girls applied. I waited eagerly to hear back by email if I had been selected as one of the 150 invited to interviews day.
I had not only been selected for interview but I was chosen as one of the final 70 in the Calendar Girls Final held at Oceana in Plymouth on Thursday July 30th.
Every guest that walked through the door was given a voting brochure with 70 names and pictures, each guest had to tick 12 names.
The final 12 were revealed some time in August. I had been working away that Summer in Kos and I still remember receiving the text that told me I was in the Final 12. I could not believe it.
I flew back from Kos at the end of August and started shooting for the calendar at the beginning of December.
Plymouth Calendar Girls is a Charity Calendar. Please visit http://www.plymouthcaledargirls.com to purchase this years calendar and for more information on how to become a calendar girl or how you can support the chosen charity.
One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along
the beach with the Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed
two sets of footprints in the sand,
one beloning to him and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the
very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life there is
only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when I needed you most
you would leave me.”
The Lord replied “My precious, precious child,
I love you and would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffereing,
when you see only one set of footprints in the sand,
it was then that I carried you.”
My mum wrote this out and had it framed on the wall in our house. I hope you like it as much as I do.
