Great North Run.
Today, my eldest Grand-daughter - Emily - is running in the Great North Run; this is a half-marathon run around Newcastle, where she lives. I am sponsoring her and the money is going to a community-based, volunteer-run gallery - PH Space. If you wish to learn more about them, please go to http://ph-space.tumblr.com/
There are thousands running. I put on the TV to see if I could see her - vain hope of course - but I have been thinking about her all morning and wondering how she is doing. Hopefully, I shall hear later in the day.
Just before the start the Red Arrows rlew over with their usual red-white-blue formation. It all looked very exciting.
The farmer is away today on his fortnightly walk with his walking group so I have taken the opportunity to catch up on doing the books, checking my bank statement and doing a bit of reading. Now lunch calls - the remains of last night's cauliflower cheese with some smoked ham. Now that I have written it down, I am suddenly hungry!
