Over the course of ten days, these green-haired gremlins managed what many of my friends would dream of achieving in ten years.  I’m not one to talk myself; heading as I am to Baldsville, at bullet-speed, on the main road in.  My wife bought these for the children to enjoy and they sat in the dining room where I captured the progress every other morning.  The first photo, below, was taken on October 1st; and the last one on October 11th.

My wife has started training for a 10km run planned for July 11th in London. She’s raising money for War Child and her target is both modest and ambitious. My job involves no running… I get tired driving 10km! So I opted for the very important and extremely stressful task of PR. In fact I think I’m doing all the work here… This post is therefore a request for donations from you: my dear readers.

The minimum donation is £2 – which is presumably to cover the transaction costs.  Donating online is easy, safe and secure.  It should not take you more than 5 minutes.  All major credit cards are accepted – as well as PayPal.  Please give what you can.  Even tiny donations will help – please don’t hesitate.

Click here for more information, and indeed to make a donation. Good luck, Noreen, and thank you everyone.

Less than 15 minutes later, we were on our way to Wembley which is about 10 minutes by car.   This is not how I usually do things.  I’m more of a tickets-in-hand-arriving-early-to-find-parking-and-enough-time-for-a-coffee type of weirdo.

My warmest Eid greetings to everyone from a frosty cold London.  I wanted to have a photograph of sheep today, but a frozen meal of theirs will have to do.

Eid Mubarak to everyone.
