With only 68 days to go, that's less than 10 weeks (Zoiks as Shaggy from Scooby Doo would say), the walk is getting ever closer. I am planning my first big walk for a few weeks on Saturday. It's perfect - no Hartlepool match and nothing to do on the night, it could be a big one! After the great dry run of Reeth to Richmond with Dad and Les, I am hoping to do another leg of the walk. If anyone fancies it on Saturday, you're more than welcome!
The Charity Chuckle is coming up even quicker, and if you haven't heard of this yet - where have you been?! See the poster below and get telling your mates, work colleagues, families, in fact anyone who will listen.
It was a bad night weather wise on Monday night which meant a poor turnout at the quiz. We had a ripple of excitement thinking we might be in with a shout to finally win one but we ended up in sixth place, which you may not think is too bad considering there's usually 15 teams, but this time there was only actually six, so yeah, last place it was.....we did scoop up a spot prize though a £5 drinks voucher. Amazingly, nobody in the whole pub knew which constituency Ed Miliband served (and even less people cared!) - it is Doncaster North. The highlight answer was perhaps me knowing whose real name is Gaynor Hopkins, of course, it's Bonnie Tyler, I think it was the rock diva in me getting that. It turns out she has just been picked to do our Eurovision song too.
I finally got my bedroom furniture sorted, it only took about 3 nights (not the 4 hours as prescribed by the instruction manual - that must be for Nick Knowles and his full team). Next up is the new bed, at least when that's done I can just fall into it!
Blogs will hopefully be a bit more regular now so I can keep my Angolan followers up to date. For you guys out there 'Bom Dia', 'Boa Tarde' or 'Boa Noite', depending on when you read this.
Bonnie Tyler eh, who'd have thought......
