Isn't it meant to be Summer ?
Hey Everyone ! It's Milly again ;)
After April and the start of may, i have officially decided that i am moving to some where hot like America when I'm older. I don't think its normal to have a cold this time in the year :) i guess thats the UK for you.
I am going to tell you a bit about the K2B and C2B which took place yesterday and i don't think i have ever walked in such bad weather, it's so hard to even describe how horrendous it was. Me and my friend Callum were doing the C2B and luckily he stayed over the night before, if not i honestly don't think i would have got up, i felt sorry for all the people doing the K2B because they had to get up 3 hours before us. Well, we got on the bus up to Coniston and after an hour of waiting we set of into the hail and the crazy winds. The Coniston Lake bit wasn't to bad for me and i was making quite good time but then it was a stretch of up and down hills called Kirby Moor and this is where i struggled a bit (not going to lie). I was walking by myself on Kirby Moor and well i was really fed up, it felt like i was in Antarctica and i was only wearing a very thin waterproof, it was so so cold and the wind didn't help at all, i was wrapped in tin foil (apparently it was meant to keep you warm) and i looked like a complete mess, the thing that kept me positive was thinking about alice and how she would be proud of everyone on TEAM ALICE. Typically as i just finished, the sun came out, however it was still beyond freezing. I was so happy when i finished it and went home to get a shower, clean clothes with UGGs and a baggy jumper. I came back to cheer in my mum and dad and all of team alice. Our K2B ladies team won the trophy for the fastest ladies team back and that was a great achievement, so a huge well done to them. I want to just say a massive thanks to all the team alice support stops, i really don't know what i would have done without them, but also thanks to the K2B/C2B support, specially to all the marshals that had to stand in that awful weather and finally to the K2B organisers, you did a great job. If anyone would like to sponsor me please do, we have very little time until our sponsorship needs to be in and we are still in the running for the Alice Memorial Trophy, i am so grateful to everyone who has sponsored me, massive THANK YOU to you guys.
We had exams at school all of last week, i don't think it went to bad (fingers crossed) they were super hard this year. I have my citizenship and ICT GCSEs this week coming, better get revising (yikes). I am a bit upset about my GCSE options because we handed what everyone thought was our original options in before December but we have just got an email saying heres the new option sheet and i can't do 3 of the subjects that i wanted to do. Just looking forward to summer although by the looks of things its not going to be a hot one, looking forward to just being of school for a bit.
I will post agin in a month and i hope everyones had a great April and start of May.
