Sooopa woman!

The lovely lady in the orange vest and white cap is my amazing friend Lorraine,
who last Sunday ran the London Marathon (26.2 miles) in an astonishing 3 hours 9 minutes!
yes you heard me right, 3 hours 9 mins (my jaw dropped too!)


In doing so she raised well over a £300 ( still collecting in moneys! ) for the 3 Volcanoes Trek for Yorkshire Cancer Centre and is considering joining me on those volcanoes! yay! fan-blooming-tastic! 
just hope I can keep up!

Lorraine herself is currently going through radiotherapy treatment for breast cancer which makes her achievement even more astounding ( even the guy in the back of the photo just can't believe it!)
Lorraine you're ace! and my hero and inspiration x
Well done gorgeous! just amazing!

Also my lovely friend Alex, completed the Marathon in 5 hours raising over a £1000 for breast and prostate cancer charity's, wonderful! Well done Alex fantastic work! See Alex's page here :)

Everyone have a fab weekend and enjoy the rain! just get your coats on and get out in it!

We love the rain at our house and I had to drag the girls in yesterday evening as they wanted to stay out in it! Lil said she loved the smell of the rain!....

....and Sky just stood there day dreaming looking out at the view in the pouring rain!
Me time I think:) "just a bit longer Mum"

Have a good one, and thanks again Lorraine you're a star! x
and thanks again ( I never tire of thanking you all x) for everyone who has donated and supported me,

Trekking on the Isle of Wight

Over the Easter holidays I did some Trekking on the Isle of Wight,
what a beautiful part of the world,
we had the most wonderful old fashioned family holiday,
skimming stones, flying kites, playing cards, having pic-niks and walking along the breath taking coastline, just grand!
THANK YOU Mum and Dad for the perfect holiday and quality time xx
After all those pebbly beaches I'm ready to tackle those volcano's!

so lovely...

Another fab friend of mine is running the London Marathon,
Alex Palmer is running to raise money for Breast cancer Care and Prostate Cancer, brilliant!
On Alex's Virgin Money giving page Alex says,
 "I am running the Virgin London Marathon 2012! My main reason for running is because recently a family friend got diagnosed with cancer. ( that's me!! ) She is currently going through treatment and is a lovely lady! ( that's me again!) Many of my friends have know people who have been directly affected by cancer. I am running for all these people too! " FAB!!
I'm so happy and flattered that I inspired Alex to do the London Marathon for such an brilliant cause, it's such an amazing achievement to run 26.2 miles! 
Good luck Alex 

Visit Alex's page here:)
I know you'll do it no problem! 
I'll be with you and Lorraine in spirit every step of the way cheering you on! 
Don't forget your flapjack xx

Fundraising update

My truly amazing friend Lorraine Smith is going to run the London Marathon in aid of the 3 Volcano Trek challenge cancer. Lorraine was diagnosed with breast cancer herself just before Christmas which makes this kind gesture all that more amazing as she is still in the middle of treatment! ( I actually think she is a reincarnation of the bionic woman hence the picture! I'd like to think she gets her athletic sporty inspiration from me.....but sadly that would be a big fat lie and the only thing I can take credit for is occasionally fuelling Lorraine with flap Jack and Naked's!)
Good Luck Lorraine lovie, I think you're ace, gorgeous, fab and inspirational, and I'm so grateful for your friendship and kindness and I'll be thinking of you every step of the way
 thank you xxxx

Special lady...

My Gran would have been 100 today!
She was such a special, lovely. gorgeous lady and it's been wonderful looking through the old photo's, I could have posted hundreds.
 I have some of the best childhood memories of my gran,  tiddly winks, toasting 'doorstops' on the fire, Caddy's ice cream van stopping outside her house, always having a hankie up her sleeve, always wore dresses never wore trousers or jeans and always smiling, happy to see you and quick to put the kettle on:) 
cheers gran:)
love you and miss you xxxxxxx







stop to admire the view...

I'm breaking in my walking boots nicely:)
