The MEFFS Royal Family decided to have a day out yesterday as it was a Bank Holiday and, if nothing else, it would get Chimpton out of bed for the day. I picked the Queen up bright and early and off we set to collect Chimpton and Eddie for our little day out. First stop was Sainsbury’s to stock up on Chimpton’s Non-Diary Creamers and then it was off to the Cinema to watch Bridge To Terabithia which was totally absorbing. Chimpton and Eddie really enjoyed the film even during the scary bits.
Kate, who kindly sponsored us on the Wirral Coastal Walk on Sunday, is shortly taking part in the Race For Life 5km in the UK’s largest women-only event to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
At the start line.
So Sunday finally arrived and after dropping the car off at the finish line and getting a lift back with Chimpton driving (a whole story in it’s self) we set off to pick up the Queen. Except the Queen had locked her wheelchair away and no one had the key. Well to cut a long story short three hours later (ok, slight exaggeration) we finally made it to the start line.
Dad in training — swallows a raw egg!
So this weekend we are doing something a little challenging, infact ALOT challenging, as a Royal Family we are taking part in the Wirral Coastal Walk, a fifteen mile (yes I did just say FIFTEEN MILE) trek around our lovely coastal area to raise money for charity. The Queen not being able to walk very far will be being pushed by her servant and on the odd occasion me, all our money is going to the HIV charity I do voluntary work with to raise awareness in and around the Merseyside area.
