Getting closer

Tomorrow morning my son Marc and his two colleagues Steve and Stuart will leave here and travel up to Scotland ready to start the walk on Friday. I've been given lots of last minute instructions and jobs to do LOL. I shall update the blog daily and either Marc or myself will update the facebook page (walkingthebeat) (thats all one word). Lets hope the weather stays dry for them. So far we raised through various events about £700 and with donations kind people have made through the just giving site were up to £982.00 hoping to raise at least £2,500 but fear it may not be possible as everyone is feeling the pinch in these difficult economic times. So please feel free to share out by blog and their facebook page to anyone you think may be interested. They've been very lucky that virgin travel have again this year given them free travel and they self fund all accommodation and food costs themselves so every penny donated to greyhound gap does go to gap and not a penny towards their personal costs.

Amongst a major baking session today I had time to finish off pages 17 and 18 of the wedding album, almost two thirds of the way there now LOL.
