The early steps of a girl about town

Mummy has signed up for a 10Km Survival Course at Battersea Power Station.  It involves running, climbing, wading through skips of icy water and crawling through mud in the middle of November.


Daddy says not to worry as it is just mummy having a mid life crisis and this is much cheaper than a sports car.

She does have to raise money for charity so I thought I would help out.  For every £10 raised, I will publish a photo of mummy either covered in mud, shivering in icy water, crying with exhaustion or any other traumatised state.

Click on the website to find out more of what she will be putting herself through

The charity is The London Legal Support Trust that provides free legal advice for those that find themselves on the wrong side of the law.  As daddy plans to send me to the local high school, this is the sort of charity I am going to need.

Thank you all for helping mummy now and me in the future!

Lots of love,

How much would it cost for Daddy to do it too?

We can come and hold your hand while you cry with laughter, Steve can take the pictures, he’s good at that.

We had better get some tin foil to wrap them in when they get hypothermia – better get some grease to baste them before they start!

This is madness…

Love and hugs
Gma and Granddad Steve
