Moonwalk Madness!

Getting ready to Walk the Walk!
Its 5 months since I posted anything on this blog - but I just wanted to say that I will be walking 26 miles around London, in the middle of the night, wearing a decorated bra on 14th May this year. I'm trying to raise funds for breast cancer by the way - I'm not just doing it because I fancy making a spectacle of myself!

I'll be pounding the pavements with some lovely friends of mine who have all done the Moonwalk in Edinburgh before. They twisted my arm to join them in London - so here goes!

All the funds will go towards breast cancer research and also to help those with breast cancer now.

At some stage, I will be doing something that raises funds for all cancer research, but for now I'll try and do my bit for boobs.

Obviously, I'd welcome a quid or 2,  (Click the box on the right) but you can just post a comment below to cheer me on instead. (I need all the help I can get! This walking lark is MUCH harder than I thought)

For every comment I get for this post, I'll chuck a couple of quid in myself.

Thanks everyone

Available in 1 Good Book Store

My 'Keep Yer Hair On' book is now for sale! I've set it at the cost price £25.95 which is bloomin expensive, I know, but I've had a few requests from friends and family to make it available and that's how much it costs!

Anyway, if you click on the link, you can have a little preview of it without having to buy it, and if there are any budding bloggers/authors out there wanting to do the same, then you can see that it really is possible.

Here's the link - Preview of the Keepyerhairon book so that you don't have to fork out and buy it!

Everything is, of course, within this very blog, so readers could also just read the blog from start to finish!

I'm an Author at Last!

I've just recently received a parcel containing a little pile of books. And the author of these books?.....ME!

I have finally achieved a lifetime ambition - writing a book! Didn't think in a million years it would be about bloody cancer, but actually, when I've read through it, its not really about cancer at all - its about me, my little family and my friends, just getting on with life for 7 months.

I am so chuffed with it!

A New Chapter...A New Blog

I have started a brand new blog.

I'd like to invite you to take a look.

One chapter ends, another one begins...

Guardian Angels

We played our last game of the season on Sunday. The Corbridge Angels v Tynemouth.
I scored 33 before getting skittled out by a demon fast bowler. I have a bruise the size of a dinner plate on my inner thigh, my achilles are both nacking and my arms are aching like hell....but I've loved every minute of it!
This little cricket team, made up of old decrepit mothers with a few great youngsters hoyed in, has kept me going throughout the last 8 months - kept me moving, kept me motivated.
Out of the 100+ players in the whole league, I finished 5th top battter with 228 runs. Most of those were scored with a baldy head and sweaty bandana. For once, I'm not bragging here - I'm just grateful that cancer didn't take over my life for 8 months....Cricket did!

We have our own little blog too - so if you're bored pay us a visit!

Here are some of the lovely Angels that played on Sunday -

The Cousins Are Here!

3 of my brothers kids have come up for a couple of days to enjoy some Northumbrian sunshine.
The 16 year old went shopping with my mum, so what should I do with the other 4? Hmmm.
I know! Lets go gambling with 2p's, feed our faces with fish and chips, then go to the beach!
This is becoming a regular outing!
Its Freezin!
Chattering teeth!
Lovely smiles

The Dune Race

Just thought I'd post this to give you a smile. The kids decided to do a bit of 'dune racing' at the beach on Thursday.
No children were harmed in the making of this video...they just had lots of sand up their nose!
