Jenny, you decide what is best for you, it wont hurt GB to rest during August, we've said before, there is no rush to finish. Best wishes to your son's girlfriend, be nice if baby was to arrive the 13th August, my birthday, but I am sure the hospital will do what is safest for baby and Mum. take care yourself. Ann Glos

Nudging one last time, for the Scotland group to give me their views. I have booked and paid for two nights in Blackpool for Friday 29th and Saturday 30th. To collect Gaynor Bear and Beau Bear from Gaynor. Money is not refundable if I have to cancel. Just five hours after booking, I find out My Son's baby is going to be induced four weeks early on Wednesday 26th. What can I do??? Shall I take Dianne and Lee's offer They say they can get to Gaynor and pick both up, and just met them at Gretna Geen, as they pass through on the way to their holiday???? Sorry to be such a pest. Jenny xx

Hi Jenny, Look leave it as it is for now-no one can predict at the moment what is going to happen with the baby . Any change and you can let me know on friday night , I can then amend plans as needed. It`s a wonder you haven`t made yourself ill ,it doesn`t matter to anyone how long it takes to complete GB Adventures and I`m sure people who are waiting will understand this and still enjoy having GB whenever they get her:)) Harry and mini GB send a big hug back to you-that was so kind of you and we really appreciate it:)) Love Diane xx

I have just had to make a decision. Son's Partner is going to be induced on Wednesday 26th. Four weeks earlier than her due date. So I expect my Granddaughter to be born late Wednesday or on Thursday. I am presuming she could be home by the weekend. I had planned to go to pick GB up from Gaynor, that weekend. I have just found out that Toni, Sons Partner's parents are away on a weeks holiday starting Saturday 29th. Toni is only 18 years old, and I think I should be around when she comes out of hospital, especially as her Mum will not be around. Ok we will lose £100 that we have paid for the hotel. Luckily that is not a problem. So I shall now not be able to pick GB and Beau up from Gaynor until the following weekend. Gaynor I hope that is OK? Bl**dy great, at long last my turn comes to pass GB on and I cannot deliver. From the day I passed GB on to Jean in Washington 16 months ago, she was the second person in the relay, I have so looked forward to seeing GB again. Sorry GB, i will see you soon. Jenny. xx

Jenny, Sorry none of us Scots have ben back on, I missed this one this morning. I think too, we have been trying to get our heads round Jilly's situation, and none of us are in gear for this. Please don't worry. As others have said, the Relay will happen.Your family must come first and I agree with you, you will have to be around for Toni and son (sorry don't think I know his name!). Regarding the hotel, are you sure they won't refund, especially given the circumstances? I would have thought that at this time of year they would have had no problem letting rooms. By the way, I think a Gretna 'wedding' meet is a great idea, and I have posted on that thread. Good luck for Wednesday/Thursday to you and your son and his partner. Take care. Sheila

Hello everyone, Just arrived back from Manchester and had my tea, Salad, New Potatoes and Thick Honey Roast Ham, delicious. I have had such a wonderful time my friend Cameron arrived from Reading for teatime , and he's looked after me very well. He played on his bike while i was very lady like and drove the car. This morning after breakfast we had a walk to the local paper shop with Camerons Grandad and Nanna and then we called round for Jake another handsome boy of this family. After lunch we went to the park and took Max the big Collie cross with us it was fun but hot we had iced tea to cool down then came home. In no time at all it was time to take Cameron to Manchester to his parents . We all piled in the car and went to the Velordrome at Sports City a huge building, there was lots of people on bikes going round and round this big track just like you see on the telly. From there we said our goodbyes to Cameron and his family so they could go back to Reading. We are all tired but have had a lovely day and have got some wonderful pictures . From Gaynor Bear to all her Friends far and near.x.x.x. Jenny, I think your right to want to be there for such a young mum, but she may sail thru everything and come out smiling .. either way the relay can wait or be put on hold for a short while. Take care of your self . Best wishes Marion.x.

Hi Just to keep you up to date, I have spoken to St Catherine's Hospice this morning, telling them all about 'G' Bear and my Mum. I asked them if it would be ok to do the hand over from Marion to myself one evening this week before Thursday at the hospice. She said she didn't think it would be a problem and is phoning me back to confirm. I will be at work all day but as soon as I know something definate I will let you know. Jenny, I will ring you and please don't worry about the hand over from me to you, we will sort something out. Love Gaynor :) xxx
