Very Sad News.

Hi there.
Thanks for popping in.
Many of you will already have heard the sad sad news 
that our darling Jayne passed away yesterday evening.



What a terrible loss.
I guess there is some comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain, but how my heart aches for her daughter and husband.

It’s so blimming final, isn’t it. 
There’s no negotiating with Death.
It takes you, and you are gone. 
Hopefully to a better place. 

I have to tell myself that she has just gone on ahead of us,
that we will meet again. 

I have to do something positive to turn this sadness around.
So Dave and I have both decided to join the 
Walking all over Cancer Movement,
and walk 10,000 steps a day.
In case you weren’t aware, there is a huge campaign being fired up where they are getting people to walk 10,000 steps every day throughout March.

But do you know what?
Today seems like the right day to start for us.
We want to do something useful because we can,
and for the love of darling Jayne. 

I have set up a Donations page, and I have set the target very high.
10,000 steps daily until we hit £10,000.


We dug out our Fitbits when we got home,
and are getting them fired up now.

No point in hanging on until March.
No time like TODAY, is there.
As time was running out for Jayne - and she knew it - she was so desperate to get her affairs in order, so that she wouldn’t leave a headache for her family. 
Makes you think, doesn’t it? 
                                                                 
The sun is shining and we can walk up on the forest 
for an hour or so.
10,000 steps sounds very doable. 
And will do us the power of good too.

And aren’t we lucky we can?
And if we can raise money to help beat this bastard disease
by simply walking one step at a time one day at a time,
then that’s very very cool with us. 

For the love of Jayne.
And she knows how much I love exercising !!!!
And Jayne!
If you’re up there smiling down on me for deciding to start walking every day with a Fitbit tucked in my bra, get this!
It even has a calorie counter on it!
Fortunately, only how many you burn, and not how many you eat!
We’d be doomed with our cream cakes!

Please give generously to the page.
Here’s the link again. I reckon it will take a few months to hit 10K, but like I said: thank heavens we can. 




Love & Hugs,
Barb
