Yeah yeah – I am a little late posting this – like 6 months late (ticking them off slowly).
This may seem a bit of an easy challenge to add to my 101in1001 list but for me, it was going to be one of the hardest!
Swimming and I don’t mix, it is not just because I am a ridiculously poor swimmer – I just don’t like it! Therefore as I rarely go near water (to swim in) I don’t feel the need to learn.
In the distant past when I was in middle school years ago we had our weekly swimming lesson at Riverside Centre, in Stafford. I hated it! It was humiliating. I was in the ‘red’ group (the ones yet to swim a width of the toddler pool – 5m). As time went on there were less and less in that group as everyone progressed to the ‘green’ group in the adult pool.
James Corden seems to be a little like Marmite. You either love him or hate him (I love him by the way – and Marmite).
But Tom Hanks EVERYONE loves, he is probably the most versatile actor we have seen in recent years, the horrors of Saving Private Ryan, the comedy of Big, the romance of Sleepless in Seattle….. the list goes on and on and on.
A couple of weeks ago, I heard that my Auntie Bella had died, if you are going to be completely accurate she was my Great-Auntie, as she was my Grandmother’s sister. This saddened me more than I could say, not just because she was a great and kind lady, but all the guilt feelings about how I should have made more of an effort whilst she was alive.
Seven friends of mine have all signed up to run the Virgin London Marathon this year (2015). Six of them have got Charity places and will be raising money for a wonderful hospice in Crawley – St. Catherine’s.
I have built them a blog and will be updating it for them until their big day on April 26th.
