Just to let you know, how Nige did. He managed to walk up & down Ben Nevis with no problems, but when he went to walk up Scafell Pike his back gave out on him. My poor boy, after months of training only managed Ben Nevis......but that is ok because he had already done the other two before. He is now home & safe where he belongs, I might be able to sleep tonight!
Even tho he didn't manage to finish it all I am still so proud of my gorgeous hubby xx
Today erm sorry yesterday was the start of this months Sparkles challenge. I totally forgot what day it was, with both of the girls taking exams & Nige away from Thursday doing his walk, my brain was total mush!!!
