Today I am a very mixed up lady - emotionally!! Why, I hear you ask. My beautiful daughter Louise, flew out of Heathrow last night on an adventure of a lifetime - she is climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support. She has done really well with her sponsorship - she has raised over £5,000!!! So obviously I am very, very proud of her but also worried silly. Tanzania is a heck of a long way away and we will not have any contact with her.
Her decision to climb the mountain came about last year when her friend Jazz, who is only 32, was diagnosed with cancer of the cervix. Thankfully, following a major operation, the tumor has finally been removed and Jazz is now on a very slow road to recovery.
My pride for my daughter is endless and I wish her the very best of luck. This experience will stay with her forever and she should feel very proud of herself. We will post pictures of her journey after she returns on 30th January.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
