I am the only person in the world it seems who doesn't care about the Olympic Torch. Despite this I rashly promised to help school look after 450 kids while they walked through the lashing rain to get a view of the torch going past. AN HOUR later ( thats an hours worth of lashing rain later )the torch came into view on the horizon. There was a quick cheer and waving of flags, a brief glimmer of something shiny....and then it was over !!...and we all squelched back to class ! Great...

Last year my friend Denise was battling breast cancer. The chemo made her pretty poorly and one night she watched the local Moonlight Walk and said if she got better she would do the walk herself. Well....last night...with a new and all better Denise...me and Janine and Pru the dog did it with her...NINE MILES...count them....in the dark...3hrs 20mins of agony !! Great night girls...lots of laughs...and chocolate....and raised lots of money for St John's Hospice ! NOW I NEED MY BED !!
