Feel I should share with you why I want to do the Race 4 Life.
Last week we discovered that SiL and her DH both have cancer. SiL had an op on Thursday and her DH goes for treatment this next week. I had an uncle who died of cancer several years ago and like to help the charity whenever I can. I wanted to do it last year but chickened in the end so this year I will do it no matter what. I started the training today with a lovely walk. Parked the car on the north side of the Tyne and walked through the pedestrian tunnel and on to Bede's World to see a friends exhibition. If anyone lives locally it's a lovely place. Didn't take photos as they are trying to sell their work and I didn't have their permission, that I can understand as they are all personal embroideries, very talented ladies!
However I will share the crocus outside the church.
The walk along side the River Don which flows into the Tyne
and the back of Pete's head with a ship at South Shields dock.
