Walkin' walkin' walkin'
Today I have received all the paperwork for the Crusaid Walk for life, a 10k walk around London raising money and awareness for HIV and Aids charity, Crusaid which I signed up for last week on a whimsical notion of doing good and keeping fit. Not only will I be walking it myself, but I have also roped in my family, including my 3 children who have absolutely no concept of how long 10 k actually is and are, at present, very excited....
I'm beginning to wonder now however, how many steps we will manage before the 'are we nearly there yet' begins.... but hopefully it will be a lovely day, we shall see the sights of London that we normally just whizz by in the car / bus or miss completely by travelling underground and it will be fun ! really... it will....
Crusaid is a wonderful charity which deserves as much support as possible, so if you're in the London area why not come along and join in? The Walk for Life is on June 7th. Or if you'd rather not suffer the blisters yourself (or hear my groans as I alternatly cajole / carry my children along the route) - you can always do a good turn and sponsor us instead without ever having to leave your computer!
Do a wonderful thing today and Sponsor family Wall here, whether it be tuppence and a cheery message to say hello, to a hefty donation from a mysterious millionaire who likes rubbish art and lurks secretly on my blog - we'd be delighted and very grateful for your support.
Today's featured blog picture in honour of the occasion, is 'Love those rubbish shoes' and is made from recycled chocolate wrappers, jelly baby boxes, (I was having a sugar crisis that day) plus an old copy of Living etc magzine and some quorn packaging.
