WHEN Maureen Sharp threw a message in a bottle into the sea in 1953 she never expected a reply. But unbelievably, it has resulted in a remarkable friendship spanning more than half a century after her message found its way onto a beach in Germany. Dagmar Wendler was just 16 years old when she found an old lemonade bottle on the beach whilst on holiday on Germany’s west coast. In it was a piece of paper written by Mrs Sharp, then 18, two years before whilst she was holidaying with her family in Mabelthorpe, Lincolnshire. Mrs Wendler wrote back and it started a bond of friendship that has culminated in the two penfriends meeting - 54 years after the bottle was first cast into the ocean.

I slowly started to wake up and tried to turn over to get more comfy in my duvet. I’d been out the night before and I was sleeping in that morning. But as I started to wake up, I knew there was something seriously wrong. I tried to move my right leg and arm and couldn’t move it. After a few hours Terry came in. He just saw me lying there, and thought I was still asleep.I was drifiting in and out of consciousness and I could just hear him saying to the children ‘I’ll leave her in bed - she’s had a few too many so she needs to sleep it off. I wanted to scream at him ‘I’m not hungover, I’m paralysed,’ but I couldn’t say anything.

On her big day tiny Jessica became the 32nd baby in the Power family line to wear the broderie anglaise christening dress.
