Ok, maybe ‘ran’ isn’t the right word… I think that ‘power-walked’ is probably more appropriate. Yesterday was Day 1 of Blog it for Babies and stated that if by 4pm the total #BlogitforBabies made reached £300 that I would head into the rather chilly sea. I am chuffed to say the total was reached and so in the wind and rain I headed down to Lepe Beach, Southampton, where I was met by Steph from I’m Counting UFOz and her family who had kindly volunteered to come along to film it.
When we arrived it was apparent that there was a number of cars parked up on the sea front with oldies sat in with their thermos flask enjoying the views of the IOW, little did they know soon a pale woman would take to the sea in just a t-shirt (and yes – I wore pants – it was a ‘family’ occasion so things had to be kept PG, and I’m not sure the etiquette around mingling with bloggers husbands but I didn’t think potentially exposing my vajaja to Stephs husband Ross would be consider acceptable Sunday afternoon behaviour.
And so here you go, as shot by Steph (thank you!) I would like to state that it was ruddy freezing but luckily I already had a cold. I do appear to have lost my voice today but that can only be a good thing for the Rock Choir singing at St. Albans tomozzle…
Thank you to everyone who supported me – from Steph who stood on the beach in the wind and rain to those who donated money and the lovely folk tweeting support. The total raised at the end of Day 1 is a super dooper £505 !
