I felt I ought to make comment on my birthday, as this is what the blog is about . Well I don’t feel any different and will continue to live life as before .

My current total stands at 11 miles.I swam this last night which was very emotional . One of the charities I am supporting is Marie Curie . Sadly my sister in law lost her dear Dad to the disease yesterday ,so my swim was in honour of Jack . A truly dignified gentleman and fighter to the end . I only knew you briefly but your legacy will live on through your children and grandchildren.

I hope that one day a cure for this awful disease will be found. Rest in peace Jack .
