During the month of September I signed up, with some friends, to Scope’s Steptember Challenge. You commit to walking 10,000 steps per day for 4 weeks and raise money and awareness for Scope.
I’m pleased to report that I managed over 10,000 steps every day, apart from one day where I wasn’t feeling well. I logged a total of 348,951 steps, that’s a daily average of over 12,400 steps. Yet more proof that my days of having to limit my physical activity are over.
I have decided the time has come to get rid of two books I bought to help my recovery. I would like these books to go to someone who would benefit from them, so I am using the blog to give them away. A brief description of each book can be found below.
If you would like one or both of them please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will choose a suitable new home for them. Depending on the level of interest I may give both books to one person, or split them into separate lots, so please state which book(s) you are interested in when you message me, and include your postal address. I will cover all postage costs to addresses in the UK.
