Good Luck Louise!!

In just under an hour's time, Louise will be flying out of Heathrow on her second marathon trek to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. She is off to Jordan to "trek across the traditional Bedouin trails, experiencing spectacular desert landscapes, towering sandstone canyons, and breathtaking views across the Wadi Araba Mountains.
After six days exploring the unspoiled wilderness and archaeological treasures of Jordan, she will  arrive at the spectacular ‘lost city’ of Petra, hewn from the rocks over 2000 years ago. This fascinating trek promises to be a physically challenging and hugely rewarding experience. Not only will it provide unforgettable memories and a great bunch of new friends, it will make a huge difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.".
This is the description of her journey, as taken from the Macmillan website!! I'm not so sure she will find it quite as enjoyable as described what with the sand, heat and endless walking - lol.  However, I am very proud of her (once again) for doing this and like the soppy Mum that I am, miss her already!! 
On a sadder note, it was Jazz who suggested Louise signs up for this one, which she did, little knowing that she would be doing it in memory of her.  I just want to say good luck Louise - you are an amazing lady and I am so proud to call you Daughter. See you in ten days time.

Hi Denise

I am writing to thank you for the lovely comments of welcome you left on Ray's blog this morning. He is away at the moment and I am supposed to be keeping an eye on things. I was horrified to discover that the automatic posting I had set up for this morning had not worked and the DT piece had not gone 'live'. (I have done it manually now.)

I was very interested to read about your work for the people who made the cross stitch designs, as will Ray be. He really enjoys making the Winnie the Pooh designs and has done quite a lot over the years, they have always been firm favourites with the children in the family as well.

I wish Louise every success with her trek, she is doing a grand job for a very worthy cause and it is the experience of a lifetime.

Best wishes to you both.

OM Word Denise - what an amazing journey, and how quickly it has come around - seems like only yesterday that I first read about Louise's Charity hike. I wish her all the best - she is one in a million.
