Thinking Toilets? #TFBloggers

Toilet tales on travels … yes, still one of the things that even as a fairly seasoned traveller can cause a few tremors – as this pretty funny post gives some insights into! We have established that the hotel will have ‘western toilets’ although the community will have “long-drops”… For many, any form of toilet is amazing, and it’s good to remember that! I’m currently saving up for a new bathroom, and my plan is Continue Reading →

Going to “See For Myself” with #TFBloggers

So here we are, my shoulders are full of needle-marks, my backpack is out of the attic and my well-worn passport has just come back with a Ugandan visa in it. Along with @davewalker and @lizclutterbuck I’ve been invited to come “See For Myself” by Tearfund. What’re we going to see? We’ll be landing in Kampala on 24th February, and heading to Soroti as a base for visits to a number of local villages (including Ogongora), flying Continue Reading →

The @KPFoundation

Having spent the last week feeling fed up stuck in bed with a massive temperature, and getting pretty fed up, yesterday I finally got around to reading Katie Piper’s Beautiful. Soon puts things in perspective, and with a friend’s child who’s recovering from severe electrical burns, and other friends with skin conditions, I’m feeling inspired: Check out what’s she’s now getting up to: drbexl Life Explorer, HE/learning, Christian, cultural history, WW2 posters: Keep Calm & Continue Reading →

Mary Jackson, Creativity in School Grounds #TEDx @LTL_Outdoors (#GB12)

Second Hand Clothes Only (#FIPI)

A really interesting story about someone who gave up her £100 a month clothes shopping habit and wore only clothes from charity shops, setting herself some rules: First, I set myself some rules. All the clothes I bought had to be thoughtful purchases (no more impulse buys) and from shops where the proceeds go to charity — vintage, or any other variety of second-hand, did not count. I made an exception for underwear. Weirdly enough, Continue Reading →

Getting Ready to Run for the @NSPCC #GetBexRunning

A little parcel that turned up in the post this morning! Which also let me know about options for signing up for a fundraising page (I try and spread out my fundraising so I don’t ask for anything more than once a year, usually 2!): They’ve got some great social media going on on the page too, and v. impressed to get a response on Facebook within 20-30 minutes after posting a hello! So who’s Continue Reading →

Richard Curtis: Keep Trying

Really interesting article in i paper tonight, from Richard Curtis, talking about some of the things he’s tried for Comic/Sport Relief, which haven’t necessarily worked, but the value in trying: Fundraising in schools has always been absolutely key to our success – and, one year, we came up with the cracking idea of writing a little play that every school in the country could perform on Red Nose Day. Fresh off the back of writing Four Continue Reading →
