NO I am not going to be running a marathon but hopefully I shall be walking 26 miles.
A girlfriend suggested we did another longÂ distanceÂ walk together as we enjoyed the Oxfam walk Â in 2012.
After having a look around I thought we should do The Daffodil Dawdle organised by the LDWA, its starts atÂ Kirtling Village Hall, near Newmarket and theÂ descriptionÂ of the walk is… Through rolling countryside with studs, woodland, arable & pasture on Suffolk/Cambs border.
I have actually done this walk before many many years ago before I met Geoff Â butÂ I did the shorter route then 🙂
The only thing that concerns me is that the route is not marked, your given aÂ descriptionÂ of the route on the day to follow and we all know how good I am at following a map !!
I am hoping that there will be a GPX file of the route which will give me a better chance of not getting lost
The walk is on March 24th and I hope to have a few 20 mile walks before then 🙂
I have started to think about my surprise holiday or should I say panic about my surprise holiday…
As far as I know we go away 2 weeks today, only a few days after Geoff gets home from the Pyrenees.
I dropped it into our conversation last night when he rang me…. all I got was pack light no more than 10kg ,wear walking kit and its high so could be cold…..
I have tried to get some information from Emily but she is not playing in fact this is what she had to say….
“Urm well…. I would be the biggest traitor ever if I told you, all I’ll say is you are going to LOVE it. I don’t like dad’s usual holiday activities but even I would DIE to go on this one it’s just stunning and breath taking and you’re going to have an amazing time :D”
Don’t know about you but I am going to burst with excitement soon…. not only am I excited about Geoff coming home but what a surprise I have to look forward to as well….
Any one like to take a guess at where I will be going and what I will be doing ???
After a very emotional and draining Funeral in Romiley near Manchester.
My boys were fantastic , Matthew even managed to get up and say a little speech all about his dad, Andrew dealt with it in his own way but they are boys to be proud off.
For me it was a very hard, emotional day but I think I dealt with it well and would like to say Thank you to all those people that showed me and my boys great kindness in our time of sadness.
I now have a lot to deal with over the coming weeks/months and I hope I can deal with it quickly and painlessly, although I doubt it will be painless for me.
A big Thank you must go to Geoff who drove us up to Manchester and collected us after the funeral, it was a big help, we loved the tour round Creswell his home town, and the Boys enjoyed staying in Cambridge ,was like a little holiday for them.
I spent the rest of the week-end swimming and sunbathing, recharging my batteries ready for the coming weeks.
Must say I do get sun burnt in the most strange places……
I see James has been blogging about the lack of visitors from blogpower people so I really must try and get round to visiting them all some time this week.
I also see lady M has awarded me the Thoughtful Blogger Award, which is most kind of her.
