A quick bonus blog for you, as we wanted to update you on Senior Research Fellow Teresa Atkinson’s 100km dog walking challenge in March. Over to Teresa:
Whilst I was never in doubt that I would rise to the challenge of walking 100km in a month, it’s certainly had its ups and downs. Who would have thought we could go from 19 degrees to snow in the matter of a few days? So here is a photo of me on my last, triumphant day, looking a little euphoric and wrapped up.
Oska is looking much as though I’m forcing him to be photogenic, but he was a little distracted by a pheasant. I have to say, that has been his main focus during our walks – when can I spot my next pheasant, or squirrel?! It’s a game he takes great delight in! Thankfully he is less interested in sheep which we saw in abundance, along with lambs, on our walks.
Thank you all for your kind donations (it’s not too late by the way!). Dementia UK is such a fantastic charity and I have the privilege of knowing several Admiral Nurses so can vouch for the amazing work they do.
Dementia UK’s next challenge (I use that word lightly) is #TimeforACuppa in May – cake and a cuppa anyone? I’m up for that kind of challenge!
