For the next lot of walks, I had my youngest at home with me as he didn’t fancy going on school camp. This meant a lot of fun days out that also involved walking. It was such a brilliant week and so nice to get some one on one time with him for a change.

If you would like to sponsor me then please visit the Every Day Hero site – this does only take card payments though, so if you prefer Paypal then pay me at and I will pay it in myself – you’ll be able to see I’ve done so, no robbery or trickery here.


Thank you,
