Another encouraging day. However, it didn’t quite start that way. I had one of those mornings when I almost persuaded myself to have a day off from the pool. I was tired, and busy with other things, and I really wanted to get on with my plan about how to fundraise the £237 before next Monday to reach my £1,000 mark. But I gave myself a good talking to, and decided that some things are best put on hold whilst I just get on with another mile swim, so I can record at least another 5 mile gain by the end of the week. I’m so glad I did. By the end of another busy lunch time session at Armthorpe, I clocked up 74 lengths, adding an extra 250m to the mile I had planned, and felt so much better for it.
I got home to a message to take a look at the Doncaster Star web page. It was there I found this on the headline page:
I love the headline! The Osmond family have inspired me in many more ways than just my swim, over the years, but it was good to read their name and Doncaster in the same sentence! 🙂
The link for the full article is:
The actual Doncaster Star newspaper print version is over a double page and I appreciate each part which has been covered. I particularly appreciate the details given about The Hearing Fund UK, the charity I am raising money for. Darren Burke, the Chief Reporter, has done a stirling job. Thank you Darren!
PS. An amazing coincidence happened this afternoon as I ordered my two copies of the Doncaster Star from Asda. I can’t share any more about this just yet, but watch this space 😀 😀
PPS. I have had exactly ONE THOUSAND views to my Blog since I started this 16 days ago!!!! Thank you everyone for your interest and support! Incredible! xx
