Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

If you didn’t hear yesterday, I’ve been signed up to do the Sunderland 10k this year to raise money for the NSPCC Sunderland. I mentioned to Simon that I hadn’t even started training so in order to motivate me he brought in the big guns, in the form of Steve Cram! He’s agreed to be my mentor throughout my 8 week training period and I really don’t want to let him down. He gave me some great training tips for the first week and I’m pleased to say I started my training last night, and I’ve even changed my diet. Simon was surprised to see me eating granola and yoghurt this morning for breakfast instead of doughnuts and I’ve even brought salad in for dinner. I’m a changed woman, and dedicated to raise as much money as possible for the NSPCC. Thank you to Steve and thank you to all the running clubs that have been in touch today. The Sunderland Strollers and the Sunderland Harriers have both invited me to go along for training sessions; I’ll definitely have to take them up on their offers!

Today is World Book Day and many kids will be going to school dressed as their favourite storybook characters. We were inundated with adorable photos of kids in their fancy dress outfits. It’s impossible to pick the best one because all of them look amazing. Courtney Begg on Facebook got in touch to say she had an hour to make her son an outfit.........I must admit we weren’t sure she’d pull it off, but the photo she sent an hour later of her son dressed as Oliver looked great. Even some teachers got involved; Mrs Appleton from Grangetown Primary School is going to work this morning dressed as The Cat in The Hat and I think she could possibly win the coolest teacher award!

I’m a bit of a book worm myself, so whatever you do today take some time out to celebrate World Book Day by relaxing with a cup of tea and getting lost in a good book, I know I will.
