Well at least this time I have only missed one day not a whole week. anyway here goes. Yesterday was an OK day, I logged on from home and did a heap of work. I'm just trying to catch up a little before I go back. I got quite a lot done so was quite pleased. Apart from that there was not a huge amount of news but I did have a lovely email last night from someone Steve used to work with. I've copied part of the email below for you:
I work in the Accounts department at Traveljigsaw and have done for a number of years. I was therefore lucky enough to know and work with Steve for a number of years and I must say we always had a ball
Earlier this year I thought I would try and show my support towards Steve and his illness by signing up to run the Great North Run. I asked Steve before I signed up that I wanted to do this for a charity of his choice and together we decided that I would run and try and raise some money for The Christie. With the run less than 2 weeks away I have set up a just giving page to try and raise as much money as I can for this charity as per Steve’s wishes
(www.justgiving.com/andrewcroston85). I am sorry that I have not been in touch sooner in regards to this but I was unsure myself as to whether I would be able to do the run until such short notice. I was wondering whether you would be able to mention this and my just giving page on your next blog or on facebook somewhere so we can try and raise as much as we possibly can.
I remember Steve mentioning this to me and I know he was chuffed that someone wanted to do this in his honour which is why I am passing this on as I (and I am sure Steve), would be very grateful if anyone could support Andrew in raising money for a very worthwhile cause.
Today I have spent most of the day out, I had to take my car in to the garage for an MOT so took it to the garage it went to last year and then spent the day with a friend whilst the garage worked on the car. Steve's Mum visited this evening, it was nice to chat to her properly but this evening I have not managed to catch up on any of the things I wanted to sort, I think an early night is in order and an early start tomorrow so it's goodnight for now.
