Where do I start? I suppose I start from the beginning.
For us the beginning was Christmas day 2011, Thomas my Grandson was born. Big do’s and little do’s, 3 months in ICU & HDU, loads of tests, & tears and finally Cystic Fibrosis was confirmed.
Wow, a shock to all concerned. A very dark day was when Thomas was baptised in the ICU unit. Personally I was not sure he would see the next day. Many more shocks followed those early dark day’s but (cliché warning) “the darkest hour is just before the dawn”.
Now Thomas is coming up to his 6th birthday and is a beautiful little man, full of beans and love, with the most inquisitive mind.
So as I start on this journey, if ever my day becomes dark, I will just need to look to Thomas for inspiration.
So What am I doing?
WELL ON THE 1st JULY 2018 WE SET OFF FROM......
Land’s End to John O’Groats it's the traversal of the whole length of the island of Great Britain between two extremities; in the southwest and northeast. The traditional distance by road is 874 miles (1,407 km) and takes most cyclists ten to fourteen days; the record for running the route is nine days. Off-road walkers typically walk about 1,200 miles (1,900 km) and take two or three months for the expedition.
