One of my New Year’s resolutions was to get fitter and I saw this challenge at my local gym:
The Aspire Channel Swim.
This seemed such a good idea when I first saw the leaflet. How hard could it be? (it even said this on the leaflet) - 22 miles in 12 weeks, which in my pool is 1416 lengths!
After a difficult start, I have now completed 580 lengths and feel that it is achievable and this is where you come in!
Aspire works with people with spinal cord injuries, providing practical solutions to help them live independently, so I was wondering if anyone would like to sponsor me.
I have a web page on the Aspire site so that you can read all about my exploits during this marathon and also pay your donations on this page. It doesn’t matter how small, I will be very grateful that you have shown your support.
I am also very busy making Angels for a show, that I have been invited to do at the last minute. It is taking place at the East Midlands Conference Centre in the University of Nottingham NG7 2RJ, so it is very easy to find and there is parking.
Spirit of Life Events is running this Festival of Fire, with over 100 stalls and talks and entertainment to feed the spiritual soul. I am really looking forward to it.
The show is on Saturday 1st – Sunday 2nd November 10.30 –5.00 and costs £4.00.
As I haven’t done a show for some time, I have really enjoyed getting creative (it’s my happy place) so there should be a super selection of Angels and gifts for Christmas.
Well I can’t stay and chat as I have some half-dressed Angels to finish………….
Hope to see you there x
