A bit of a late blog update this week as we've both been busy with work, catching up with friends and family and rehearsing (yes, you can see us on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in May if you fancy, we're singing in the choir at 'The Night of 1000 Voices' don't cha know...or maybe it should be 'The Night Of 998 voices and 2 girls physically gagging with excitement')
After having to take last week easy we have eased ourselves back into our training by either doing a couple of miles in a day or spending at least half an hour doing some aerobics (thanks Davina!)
Feeling much more positive this week which is always nice!
Last week we were offered a couple of night’s accommodation in a hotel in London by one of our lovely supporters, Philippa! Not only has she found us somewhere to say but she, to date, has given us our biggest amount of sponsorship - she had a bonus from work and that’s what she put towards our cause.... what a lovely girl, she gets two gold stars and a thumbs up from us!
The Falcon Inn in Hatton have also donated a room to us for the first night of our challenge; we are so, so grateful!! Hatton is a little craft village in Warwick, it’s absolutely beautiful so it'll be lovely to walk though that way on our travels ...and if you ever want a quiet weekend away from it all, we'd recommend that you book yourself in there!!
Publicity wise we are doing quite nicely at the moment - we've not been too pushy to date but people have started to show a little bit of interest in what we're doing; we've had an article published by 'Showandstay.co.uk' - we made 'WestEnd News', can you believe that?!
That article was then picked up by someone over at Brian May's website and put on...get this...'Queen News'. (we were excited.com!)
We've also had a mini-phone interview with one of the local papers thanks to another one of our supporters, Jamie, who got in contact with them on our behalf....
In the grand scheme of things, these publications are not the kind that are going to launch us into the lives (and bank accounts) of thousands of people - but come on, BRIAN MAY!! ('s website)
We're contented walkers!
Check back next week!
Lots of love
