Hello hello. Feels as though I’ve not posted for ages, but actually it’s just been a long feeling week. Which is a bit unfair given there was a three day weekend, so it’s technically a short week. Hmm.
So, what news. Well, in TKOE world, we now only have to raise a further £8541. Thanks again to Jane and Lucy who have added some more into their Snowdon climb. £900 they’ve raised! All for the Teenage Cancer Trust, Birmingham YPU. 🙂
And Gwen has so far – and note that it is ‘so far’ – raised 331% of the target she set for the Race for Life Running for Rosie birthday outing. Just pop over to http://www.justgiving.com/doubledigits and you can see what that means in money terms. She’s not quite finished yet, so I’ll add it in when she gives me the nod.
Oh my goodness, we are almost within reach now, aren’t we?We look as though we might just ,between us all ,raise that £20k.
We’ve also been approached about three totally different ways to raise some money for the £20k challenge, which we’re just sorting out a bit more and then I’ll share on here. One of them I will need some bright ideas about; one is hilarious and one is brilliantly thoughtful.
So, lots to be pleased about.
As well as feeling all churned up about Rosie and the 1 year anniversary coming up, we’re also preparing for Calum’s big adventure. He goes off to Foxes on 8th Sept. We’re going through all those things of being really pleased but really nervous. He’s so steady and funny and just here in the present we’re going to miss him so much. He really has taken to texting though, so I don’t doubt we will get a running commentary. I’d quite like to get him a Twitter account because his texts and thoughts would make brilliant reading; as he doesn’t really understand the ramifications of that though, I don’t think we ought to.
He’ll love it, I know. But will we?
