Well it’s finally happened! during training at Dartford last week I clashed heads with a training partner and am now the proud owner of a cauliflower ear! To make matters worse I was training with my younger brother Jack last thursday and part way through the training I heard the strangest noise, yes it was my ear which then went to twice it’s normal size. So after a trip to the hospital I had it drained and then what appeared to be a button sewn on the front and also another button on the back of my ear lobe. This was done to keep a continuous pressure against my ear to stop the swelling re-occurirng. After 5 days or pain I final had the stitches taken away yesterday and I’m pleased to say my ear looks far better than I expected, so now I shall look rather silly because I will be wearing a head guard during training.
On a far happier note I received a cheque for Â£300 from Asda yesterday to top-up my funding. This couldn’t have come at a better time, I have the British trials in January and as part of my training I will be aattending two training camps 1 in France and the other one in Germany. So the extra money will go a long way to helping me pay for these trips, so a big thank you to everyone at Asda.
