Good evening, well I don't know what the weather has been like with you but we have had another dull miserable day here in North East Fife, the type of day that you just don't feel like doing much, I couldn't even be bothered crafting. So tonight I am going to show you a couple of photos of necklaces my oldest daughter made to raise money for" The Alliance Trust " Cateran Yomp, that supports soldiers charities, It's a 53mile walk over 24hours to raise the money. Gillian and a group of her work friends help out at these kind of things by being at different stages over the course to see to treating the people taking part feet, Gillian and her team raise funds to buy equipment to deal with some really sore feet. Gillian makes and sells her pendants with all the money made going into the fund. Here are some that she made.
I am really proud of Gillian that she gives her time up making her pendants, also making tray bakes that she sells to raise funds.
She has done this for a couple of years, after seeing the state of the feet of the people doing the 53miles. She has patched up a lot of very sore feet between this challenge and that of those doing the Maggies 40mile bike and hike.
This years "Yomp" is on the 28th June, so we will be keeping fingers crossed for good dry weather for all those doing it.
Thank you for all your lovely comments, I am still trying to get round all the blogs that I missed while being away, I have been cat looking after this weekend at Gillian's. It turned out on Saturday to be one of thoses times that if someone had filmed the look of horror on my face on Saturday morning it would have been priceless - I walked into her dinning room to find her mice cage in bits and the young kitten sitting looking at the up turned tray of said cage. I spent over an hour looking and catching three of the four mice, poor number four didn't make it. One kitten was well and truly in my bad books, new cage was required and the mice have spent the weekend in the bathroom with the door firmly shut.
That's all for tonight, sorry if I have waffled on. Take care.
