Just a very brief post...
In reference to my previous post:
Edit and disclaimer one: Contrary to what it may appear, my wonderful mother accompanied us on said beach trip and made the occasion what it was. This announcement was made due to my own guilt and not at all because she has hounded me constantly with a sulky face at being left out.
Edit and disclaimer two: To any of Abby's teachers who apparently read this(!) I kidnapped her and forced her at gunpoint to accompany us. And no I won't do it again.
All authors notes out of the way, more exciting news, I have taken a big breath (yay that statement is no longer ironic!) and signed up to do the Hydro Active women's 5k in september. Last year I took part but was pushed round in Denzel for the majority of it (slideshow of the whole thing on my myspace page). I was given day release from the hospital where I was spending time recouping after a series of collapsed lungs and we raised over £15 000 as the Emily's Angels team.
So am muchly excited at the prospect of walking over both the start and the finish line! I am being sensible about it and asked my team first, who said I should be able to manage it by then although I may need to take breaks along the way. It will take a huge amount of training but hey that's what challenges are for!
