Where I stayed
In a field!

Saturday, August 16, 2008

I met a group of ladies as I was walking through Denstone. Thankyou to them for donating, even after embarrassing me by taking a photo of me and asking me to show my chest!!!. . . yes, I know, it was the print on the t.shirt about the walk that you wanted to see!!! Padi got a mention for the walk on Smooth Radio as she couldn't sleep one night and was texting in an answer to some question! My friend Sophie joined me Wednesday through Friday. Unfortunately, due to an injured knee, she was not able to join me on the walks (she did try on Thursday, but too many stiles!), but thankyou for providing food and transporting me to and from the areas I was walking. Thankyou to the owners of Cannock Chase Camping and Caravan Club for letting me stay there (with Sophie) free of charge, I have donated 15 on their behalf. Also thankyou to Kaye of Springslade Lodge Tearoom (www.springsladelodge.co.uk) for giving me a tasty bacon and egg sandwich (and chocolate and biscuits!) free of charge, I've donated 5 on her behalf. The day did not end there! In the evening I managed to find a field (that had no horses or cows in!) to rest for the night. Mary, who was out looking for mushrooms with her family and granddaughter and 3 golden labradors, asked if there was anything I needed. I cheekily said yes, a bit of milk. She kindly went home and got some for me. Yes, there are some amazingly kind people in this world, and I thankyou very much. PS. Wow, I wish I could thank you personally, so I hope you are reading this Mary (I not only got milk, the bag included sandwiches, crisps, cake, banana, apple, a huge tub of fresh strawberries, can of cider, and if only you knew how much I liked, a little bottle of whiskey!) what a huge surprise, THANKYOU VERY MUCH. :)
