Happy Birthday Dear Magnet, Happy Birthday to me!!
Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to Planet Magnet on the day he celebrates his 48th birthday. Amazing when you consider he only looks a day over 47 😉
Just as well Warner Music are no longer allowed to charge for using those lyrics otherwise I could be down by almost £1000 going on what they have charged other well wishers in the past…. 😉
So anyway, yes today is my birthday so shall I put my feet up and relax, take a day to myself, go to the pub, treat myself to some new stuff on a shopping trip….? Nah! I’ve got much better things to do than that….!
I am going to be busy for the entire day.
First thing I shall be collecting my little mate Archie and taking him out for a few miles training up to the Ridgeway, then I shall go to collect my dear mother as I am to be taken out to lunch to one of my favourite local Gastro Pubs – The Boars Head in Ardington.
After lunch I will need to return to the Ridgeway as I am to meet a reporter to discuss the coming months of training for the big day and to get my name out there along with the cause so I have been told to list hashtags, twitters and websites so people can get involved. Whilst I am there I will be photographed receiving the keys to a sign written Dick Lovett Mini from Hungerford as they will be the ones who are supplying the support vehicles when the time comes to attempt the walk proper in June. Alongside the Dick Lovett representative will hopefully be someone from my gym the TFD to show their support for my challenge. This will be great because hopefully they are going to help out with training partners for me on my long days and hopefully get a group of people involved along with themselves.
Now at this point you would think that would be enough but it turns out that I am then required to go to Waitrose and meet with them to discuss how they might best help the challenge. Hopefully they will offer me the token system as I have said once before but there is also a plan for the to provide energy snacks and water etcher the team or possibly the walkers if required. That part is still in the air so we are going tomorrow to discuss further with an aim to nailing it down a little.
Now after this I shall be be free for a little while so I reckon I will be putting my feet up for a moment and possibly allowing myself a nice strong Latte and a little birthday cake treat….. Well, it would be rude not to.
This will take me up to the evening where I know I am not doing anything in particular but I will go to my friends house for dinner and get to relax and watch a movie whilst she will no doubt fuss over me so that will be great end to what looks like a great day.
So there you go.
I have a plan and I plan to stick to it as much as I can.
Fingers crossed everyone else does too….
Stay out of the fridge.
