23/Project 365 and Team Honk Dover Day 2
Bunny is still really ill today, having spent most of the night up-chucking and continuing throughout the day. All Team Honk plans were put on hold and a forecast for heavy, possibly thundery rain at the exact time we planned to head off in the Little Tikes Cozy Coupes along the seafront didn’t exactly help. So we postponed until tomorrow when the forecast is currently dry in the morning. We then woke to stunning blue skies and the Thanet Twitterati rejoiced by sharing photos of our lovely beaches, just to rub salt in the wound. However, right on cue, at 11.31am, the heavens opened and it poured with rain for 2 hours – the exact window we’d planned for our walk. So we relaxed, glad to have made the right decision.
Today was also my first day in my new office sharing with a colleague, and my first real “office”. It is very different from being in the main school office, and while we get lots of visitors, when they go it is eerily quiet. Perfect for concentrating on data-centric tasks, but also very strange. I think I’m going to like it though, especially as it will be so much easier to share work and ideas.
As Bunny couldn’t leave the house again, I took Bear shopping with me and while out, we picked up the Team Honk baton from Becky at work and took it for a quick run on one of my favourite local beaches, as beautifully demonstrated by my shivering little Bear below.
So, now the reminder to ask you to donate to Team Honk Dover if you haven’t already. I know today hasn’t exactly been an awe-inspiring display of sportliness, but heavy rain and a vom-fest coupled with opposing working hours, just made it a challenge too far. We promise to make more effort tomorrow for our final day with the baton, as it makes its way around Thanet and to Gravesend. And don’t forget, you can also Text HONK to 70005 to easily donate £5 to Sport Relief.
