I had a text from my mum this morning telling me about the inspirational people she had bumped into while she was in our local town this morning. She asked if I had a theme for my ‘d’ blog today as these amazing people were walking from Dover to Carlisle…the kind of challenge that is right up her street (any excuse to do something slightly crazy for a good cause)!! To my delight they also have a blog you can look at and so I asked her to write me a little piece about them, here is what she had to say…

“I was just walking back to the car when I saw a lady checking her map, it always takes me right back to being lost somewhere between John O’Groats and Lands End and so I stopped to ask where she was headed. I didn’t expect her to say Carlisle! It transpired that John and Nancy are walking from Dover to Carlisle to raise money for a Christian Aid Project, Transforming Women’s Lives in Afghanistan through education and community development. What an inspirational team they are, they have a blog too, so not only are they walking every day, Nancy also takes time to write and share their adventures.”

Their blog is definitely worth a look, here is the link. Have a read of their adventures, maybe you can help them towards their cause, and if you live somewhere else along their route you absolutely must keep an eye out for them. Good luck John and Nancy!


a-to-z HEADER [2014] - april

This month I am taking on the Blogging from A – Z Challenge! This is a yearly challenge that started in 2010. I am to write a blog based on a letter for every day in April – apart from Sundays, each Sunday I’m allowed a lie in and a little blogging holiday! Handily this makes 26 days, one for each letter of the alphabet.

This seems quite an ask here on the very first day, but the posts don’t need top be long, just in keeping with the letter for that day. I think it is going to be great for stretching my imagination and give me the chance to write about something I wouldn’t usually. I have a few ideas up my sleeve, and I hope you will all enjoy the ride with me.


Today is the first of April, so rather unimaginatively, A is for April, and this is my challenge for the month…who knows where it will take me, I’m hoping for some adventures on the way!
