Gloucester 5k Race for Life

Back home now after an amazing morning, walking the Gloucester 5k Race for Life with my awesome granddaughter Evie.

We only decided to do it just over a week ago, when we were talking about cancer and she was asking me questions about when I was poorly with breast cancer a few years ago.   I suddenly decided that this was the year I wanted to do it, and Evie was the one I wanted to do it with!!  When deciding what pink things I would wear, I thought of my mum’s pink cardigan…..she was wearing this when she was poorly and when she died, it was such a comfort for me, so I put it on for the first time in almost 3 years and it felt amazing.

At about the 4k mark we were flagging a little so popped in to Patisserie Valerie…….never expected to get caught on camera by my husband Trev ha ha…all in the name of raising money I say!!

I think we have raised over £160 for Cancer Research, and couldn’t have done it without donations from kind friends and family, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH 🙂

Think an afternoon of art is in order…..don’t you?
