Some of you might have been wondering where I’ve got to? No new chapters and no new critting. Sorry, I’ve been so lame, but I’ve been concentrating on not drowning as I was brave/foolish/utterly mad* enough (*delete as applicable) to do a sponsored swim.
Tonight, I did it. I swam my 1.5 km in a personal best of 1 hour 1 minute and 59 seconds. I know didn’t quite beat my hour, but I did shave 4 1/2 minutes off last years result!!
Maybe next year I’ll go for the 2.5 km? Definitely something to think about… *grins*
Why this madness? I’ve been taking part in Swimathon 2007 and helping support Marie Curie Cancer Care to provide nursing care, free of charge to give terminally ill people the choice of dying at home supported by their families.
And there’s still time to help them to carry on their fantastic work, and show your support for my swimming challenge by making a secure online donation using your credit or debit card.

Go on, you know you want to!!
