Glint

2 Feb

Lovely, lovely comments and poems about Rosie and remembering people after they have died. So, it looks like a Team Kilburn book or whatever about remembering is a runner then. Will let you know how it’s going because I’m going to need your help.

Welcome back Claire – we shall all vibe for you.

It’s brilliant the way you are all coming up with ideas about raising money, and doing things you wouldn’t usually do. Some people have said they are doing it because Rosie had to put up with so many unpleasant things, so they are pushing themselves to do things they wouldn’t have done otherwise. Let us know when you are climbing Snowdon, Lucy.

At the weekend, I’m going to try to put up a list of all the ways people are raising money for TKOE. Cal has a trampoline competition in Birmingham so I can put it all together whilst we wait for his turn. I sort of watch behind my hands because I always expect at least one broken neck to happen.

Also, I got all excited about going to the theatre, and then didn’t tell you how it was. It was brilliant. The all male Propeller company. Impossible to describe, but well worth seeing, even if you don’t like Shakespeare. Realised how long it must have been since we’ve been out to see anything though. The tickets were so expensive. And I think theatre should be for everybody. Not just people who can afford it.

A good start to February by the way:

🙂 Rosie’s blog is featuring on BBC online on 7th Feb in an article about how the internet can be a good thing  

🙂 TKOE blood donations = 6

🙂 And we now only need to raise £16071. Thank you Newent Rotary.

Cal has just looked over my shoulder and asked why the title of this post is glint. Because it is a good word that isn’t used enough.

Bye

Jo

    I haven’t posted before but just to let you know I made a blood donation last week to you can update TKOE blood donations to 7! I was inspired last year by Rosie to begin donating blood and will continue to do so whenever I can.

    Hi Team Kilburn

    Just wanted to let you know that I’m expecting my first baby not going to find out if it’s a boy or a girl but if it’s a girl we have a definite name… Liberty Rose. We thought who better to name our baby after than an inspirational person who never gave up. We will inform you in about 22 weeks if baby is a boy or a girl 🙂

    Love Polly xxx

    Dear Jo

    I always enjoy reading a new blog entry. I received a ‘Robin for Rosie’ in the post this week, what a lovely idea. I look forward to the fundraising list and to getting involved with raising even more funds. Only £16071 to go – wow!

    I completely agree about ‘glint’. It’s a great word, summing up shiny and sparkly, and I shall now try to use it regularly following your prompt (especially in relation to Rocks for Rosie – so watch out for glinty descriptions when I add more items). Big thank yous for orders so far, from London to Scotland and various in-between, and even an enquiry from the US! And yay for all of the fundraising activities going on or planned, look forward to the list.
    Best wishes to Cal for his competition – what a star he is. Hope you al have a good weekend. x
