Merry Christmas 2018 and a Happy New Year from Lindy and Comet
Where has 2018 gone? I thought I would send out this year’s greeting a bit earlier so that I can moonlight once again on Santa’s Sleigh Team.
Launch of new revamped website for Christmas – www.lindyhou.com
Some of you may have wondered why I haven’t written any newsletter lately, it is because I have been busy helping Lindy and many of her helpers to revamp her webpage. This new look website incorporates all my Tails, photos, videos and, most importantly, highlights the motivational speaking that Lindy and I do among corporate organisations, schools and community groups. You can get to her website using www.lindyhou.com. Please go in and have a look, send us feedback and pass on the web address among people you know who may be looking for a motivational speaker.
Highlights for 2018
2018 began with the Para Road National Championships when Kerry and Lindy won the road race and road time trial for the Women’s Tandem.
Then I, along with Kerry, guided Lindy for the Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay on 25 January.
We then packed our bags and travelled across to Auckland for the International Retina Congress, where we learnt the progress being made to find a cure for all those genetic degenerative eye conditions. We also got to experience the New Zealand culture.
I was so exhausted that I stayed home while Lindy went on a speaking tour of Guangzhou and Hong Kong to celebrate International Women’s Day in March.
Lindy has competed in Indoor Rowing over the last few years. Recently, Concept 2 International has established World Record for adaptive vision impaired rowers for the 50+ age female category, and Lindy had her 500m World Record ratified this year. Apart from that, Lindy took out medals in the Qld, NSW as well as the National Indoor Rowing Challenges this year.
August was my month to shine when I along with my team participated in Pawgust and clocked up over one million steps between us all.
Then on the 3rd December I took Lindy to the Parliament House for the International Day of People with Disability. This year’s theme is empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality. The patron Gerrard Gosens did chocolate making demonstrations as well as giving a wonderful speech. I saw Guide Dog Boss at the function but didn’t have a chance to swap tails as we were both working and not supposed to stop and chat.
When you get this newsletter, I will be off on a short holiday in Canberra while Lindy and Kerry go to Melbourne to compete in the Para National Track Championships.
Lots more happened in my life during 2018 – like speaking engagements in schools, for corporate organisations and for community groups as well as many social occasions.
