I'm a mum, a midwife and wanting to support my community.
Organisations Jen Stoneham has pledged to support
Rain, wind, sun and a rainbow and that was just the first 5 minutes.
No big finds this week apart from a Dodgeball DVD (if you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball!) as well as hundreds of lollipop sticks and (of course) cigarette butts. Big news of the evening was that Jen did go home 25p richer, that's Alice sorted for pocket money! Jo found a piece of Christmas tree and I found some chocolate money wrappers so we were in season with the weather at least.
Once we'd done almost our whole lap and said hello to the animals, Rosie spotted loads of rubbish in the bushes and jumped in to retrieve it.
We left the park just as the next lot of rain was about to fall so there was an added element of trying to get indoors without getting totally soaked... Not sure how many of the 6 managed it....
The £1 sale is STILL ON! So Naomi House still need our help sorting through their donations and getting them out into the shop. If it's a cold and rainy day this is the perfect antidote - warmth, good humour and there's quite often a cup of tea too!!
Three challenges for you to celebrate our 3rd birthday. You can do 1, 2 or all 3 challenges. Please send photos to me before our birthday quiz in the evening.
- Do a run/walk/cycle to 3 things in 3 miles.
- Get a selfie of you with something beautiful, something powerful and something charitable.
- Draw a triangle on Strava.
Bonus points (& feelings of smugness) if you can do all these things in one run/walk/cycle!
Big thanks to Katie L for her creative brains on this challenge.
Our 3rd birthday and hopefully we will get an opportunity to properly celebrate this fact later in the year. For the moment, it's an online option so dust off your pen & paper and get ready for a quiz.

Many congratulations this morning to Super GoodGymmer Jo for reaching a phenomenal 200 Good Deeds! She donned the GoodGym Cape for our task this morning, and absolutely rocked the power pose!
Our litter pick this morning began with the discovery of a dog shark carcass on the beach - Rosie is now getting a reputation for finding animal remains on her missions!!
There wasn't much litter on the beach, so we headed to the Rock Gardens where a passer-by pointed us in the direction of a clearing full of party detritus and got to work. We found the packaging for two boxes of 24 laughing has canisters but only found 39 canisters - maybe they were polite enough to put the other 9 in the bin themselves.
Our nature spotting continued with a pond full of tadpoles and a heron, who seemed a little out of place amongst the magpies and pigeons!
Thanks everyone for their efforts today, the public (and the Colas workers) were very grateful for our help tidying up the seafront!
College Park and the play area within the park are the target for the week.
Meet by the bottle bank / charity bins on the corner of Copnor Road and Kirby Road. NB the postcode on the listing is for Enable Ability which is a bit further up Copnor Road
Let me know if you need me to bring you a litter picker!
