I'm taking part in Dryathlon, having no alcohol this January to raise money for Cancer Research UK

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. 2018 found me sitting in front of 2
separate oncologists, in 2 separate hospitals, for 2 members of my family, the youngest and the oldest. If research can find cures for all types of this disease, a dry January is the least I can do! This January I’m taking on the Dryathlon and raising money for Cancer Research UK by ditching the drink for one month and fundraising for life-saving research. Thank you to all of you who have supported me.... And my family throughout 2018.... xxxxxxxxxx

Day 2 in the DryMother House. Today's challenge was when someone bought in a box of brandy liquor chocolates at work. A double whammy... Choc and booze! I resisted and ate endame beans instead! Yay!
