Gaynor..... you are so going to have to have a picture sent to you of me and the monkeys if I am fortunate to meet one of them (LOL)..... as for making you cry.... favour returned, as you have done it to me often enough!! See you on the 16th. Strump & Paul..... thanks guys for nudging this up often. Everyone else (sorry for not mentioning you all personally) - but thanks for your generosity.... it warms me to see not only the names I recognise, but ones I don't supporting me too!! Diana

Will do when I am home from work later. I have "lost" close relatives and friends from cancer. Thanks for doing this, Diana. Joy

Thanks Joy..... but no need to thank me, you lot will be with me every step of the way..... even through the training, by putting up with my moaning and whinging about blisters!! Off to Millets to buy boots today.... I hope they have pink ones!! ;O)

Not quite every step, Diana, because my membership expires 13 April, so shall have to let you have my email address nearer then. If you hadn't had the idea to do this, we couldn't sponsor you! Hope they have pink boots for you. Joy


PinkDiana Report 24 Sep 2004 11:02

Don't leave me Joy!! :O) Anyway that Gaynor woman has just upped the anti and has made me promise to raise £5,000 instead of the £3000 which is the minimum trek sponsorship..... talk about no pleasing some people!! LMAO!! Ok people, the anti has been upped, and I need your help more now than ever.... please, please, please, email all your friends, family, colleagues and get them to help too!! Otherwise i'll be calling on you all to walk the streets with me with charity boxes on a cold winters day!! :O) Thanks again for all you are doing to raise awareness.... from both me and the mad woman Gaynor!! xxxxxxxx

PinkDiana Report 24 Sep 2004 16:14

Oh Diana - what have you let yourself in for!!! How about a "Diana in Training" diary and let us all go through the aches and pains with you? This will also keep the subject going until the great event and probably grab a few more donations. Nes


PinkDiana Report 25 Sep 2004 18:50

Did my first walk last night..... just down to the local but it was a start!! ;O)
