Clari, brilliant idea.  Who wants to run a marathon when it's such an effort to drink water for a month. Couldn't do it 'cos I think I'm addicted to coffee and cola.  Keeps me awake half the day anyway

See original post

 I'd love to run a marathon but I think it would kill me. I drink three cups of tea before I even consider starting work so this whole caffeine free idea I fear may well result in a few unplanned naps! Even if I only raise a few pennies it helps.

Having seen all the horrid things in the news recently that the RNLI are rushing off to I decided to do what I could to help them raise funds. Unfortunately running a marathon will result in a £4,000 bill from the air ambulance (that's what it costs every time it takes off) and I'm too delicate to jump out of a plane so I'm doing a H20nly challenge. That's 10 days of only drinking Yorkshires finest tap water (don't worry: they do allow you to eat).

Now its neither heroic nor terribly embarrassing so I don't expect to raise much but I've decided it would be fun to try and raise enough money to clothe one RNLI crew person (£968.00)

My friends have jumped at the challenge and in only a few hours we had the £42.00 required to purchase some sea boots. Not much to cover his or her dignity but still at least their feet wont get wet!

If anyone wants to waste some time on the internet avoiding the ir*ning pile you can see my fundraising attempts here....

My little sweetheart Reggie although absolutely adorable in his mothers eyes has a proper German Shepherd bark with proper Land Shark teeth that make an appearance when the door bell goes. Most delivery drivers are by this point already leaping the fence and for some reasons the sales people don't fancy talking much.

Yay! Well done Clari - that means I can stay in bed a bit longer and not fire up the laptop

See original post

 I'm still in bed Dove! Shouldn't be but I'm enjoying the last few days before the school rush traffic makes my journey to work a special level of agonising.

Didn't see it trending Steve. Must be my modesty filters!

Does it link in to "your sister tastes lovely" at all?

Morning all! Back to work today. Let the chaos commence.

How are you at multi taskin'?

Posted: 31/08/2016 at 06:55

I often multi task with my brain planning several things completely separate to what my hands are up too.
