I’m Clocking K’s for R U OK? in memory of Ant

In May, I lost my Soulmate Anthony Wilson to the Black Dog .  Its been a challenging few weeks since, navigating my way through life without him; but I thought this is a great way to honour my love's memory...

Every little bit counts!! If we can help prevent someone else feeling like this is the only option, let's do it!

This July, I’m joining K’s for R U OK? to stay connected, develop healthy habits and help to create a world where we're connected and protected from suicide.

Each week I'll be consistent in my clocking as I walk, (run, roll or ride) to help start more life-changing conversations. 

By donating to my page you are helping R U OK? provide free, essential resources to schools, workplaces, families, and communities across Australia. Giving them the tools and confidence to spot the signs and to start a conversation that could change the life of someone who's struggling. And you'll be putting a big smile on my face.

Thank you so much.

By inspiring people to take the time to ask “Are you OK?” and listen, we can help people struggling with life to feel connected long before they even think about suicide.

237 Ks for R U OK - Done for 2023

Tuesday 1st Aug
A final update on my K’s for R U OK … Thank you so much for your generous support! This years campaign finished yesterday and I'm excited to say that so far I've raised over $3200 and walked almost 237ks over the 31 days for #KsforRUOK in 2023, In Memory of Ant; my love and soulmate. The Ks gave me time to reflect on Ant, our lives and the time we spent together.; and dream about what our future held. Today pic was our future. Its the block of land I will build our dream home on that would be our Melbourne base. The build will still happen, but the memories may be too painful to stay there by myself. ----- Your generous support for this years campaign helps R U OK? to provide essential free resources to schools, workplaces, families, and communities across Australia, and empower them to start a conversation that could change the life of someone who's struggling. Together let's get everyone asking R U OK? starting conversations, and changing lives! And while this years K’s for R U OK has finished, my quest for #MentalHealthAwareness will continue. With a simple "R U OK?" we may start a life saving conversation. a conversation may just change a life. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself #ynwa #youneverwalkalone #inMemoryofAnt

Doin' it one last time for my soulmate Anthony 💔

Monday 31st Jul
For my final walk in this years #KsforRUOK #InMemoryofAnt I went back to where I took Ant walking just over 3 months ago; along the Maribyrnong River Trail. Little did I know that I would only do this walk with him the once. It was a beautiful day - 24 April - we walked and talked (and talked some more) all the way round... Talking about our weekend, our lives and our future... He was happy, very happy; and really enjoying his time in Melbourne. He found it much easier for his mental health than the country... but today i was doing it in his memory... for the most part I was on our weekly AFL meeting, but once that was done, I spent the last K or so, thinking about him... Its been a massive rollercoaster these last few days mentally, emotionally and physically; with another challenging week coming up... While my #KsforRUOK are coming to an end for 2023, stay tuned for more. As I've said before, Ant and I talked bout Mental Health every day... he was not afraid to let me know how he was travelling, so i'm going to keep on asking RUOK every day With a simple "R U OK?" we may start a life saving conversation. a conversation may just change a life.  A massive thanks for all of you who have sponsored me to date... You've kept me going... Ive tripled my fund raising goal; and more than doubled my K's goal and couldn't be happier for Ant, our family and friends and the team at #RUOK... #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself #ynwa #youneverwalkalone

#ksforRUOK a with Ants boys and Beck on the penultimate day

Sunday 30th Jul
Not long to go now with just 24 hours left to get our #ksforRUOK #inmemoryofAnt up for 2023... so far im 219ks and $3001 raised for #mentalHealthAwareness, but we need to keep going!... My morning Ks were done with Alex, Max and Beck - it was beautiful to be able to do it together for the man we all loved... Ant was special to all of us - and we were special to him... It wasn't a big walk (I'd exhausted the boys over the last couple of days) but it was still special for us to do it all together for him... We then went into the city on atram and had a walk around Flinders St Station and Fed Square, before they headed home... It was awesome to be able to do 3 days of Ks with Malex and Beck as this years Ks sstarts to wrap up... A massive thankyou to everyone who has supported me on my quest for Mental Health Awareness... and even as this one wraps up, theres still much more to come... With a simple "R U OK?" we may start a life saving conversation - A conversation may just change a life.  #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself #ynwa #youneverwalkalone

Day 29 - Ks with Ants Boys

Saturday 29th Jul
The calm before the excitement of the AFL at Marvel tonight with the Dons playing the Swans… The 3 of us went for a walk this afternoon for dad… It was great to spend some quality time with them and talking about dad and the future… The emotional roller coaster I’m on at the moment was playing havoc, but the boys made sure that if the tears started, they were there for me and gave me a hug… Love these boys to bits 💚💚💚 Cant wait to show them a great time at the footy tonight #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself #ynwa #youneverwalkalone

Day 28 - 200ks and Lightscape Melbourne with the Boys and Bec

Friday 28th Jul
Special… the best way to describe tonight !!! 5 #ksforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt… Today I smashed the 200ks and what a better way to do it than with Ant’s boys Alex and Max on their first big trip to the city… I got 3 Ks in earlier in the day, but to make the 200ks day with my big fellas boys was extra special, and what a beautiful way to do it walking through Lightscape in the Botanical Gardens… everything about tonight has been special, and we talked about dad as we went through looking at all the light installations… Ant would have loved it too… The boys even got to see behind the scenes (Thanks Chris Newman) where it was all controlled from… it really was a magical night… With 208ks now under my belt - I’m still not stopping there… 3 days to go, so who knows where I will end up… Always remember, with a simple "R U OK?" we may start a life saving conversation.  #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself #ynwa #youneverwalkalone

Day 27 - Docklands

Friday 28th Jul

Day 26 - Ballarat

Wednesday 26th Jul
Today's #KsforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt was done in my lunch break up in Ballarat where I was working today... It was great to have a change of scenery, especially in regional Victoria which Ant loved so much... Its always great getting out of the city to clear the head and get some fresh country air into the lungs... with 5 days to go I have 5ks to reach my 200ks for Ant, I'll smash that tomorrow and then Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Ant's boys will share my Ks with me while they are down for the weekend... Cant wait for that! 💚💚💚 #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself #ynwa #youneverwalkalone

Day 25 - Early start to #ksforRUOK today

Tuesday 25th Jul
A nice early start today with my #KsforRUOK #inmemoryofAnt... Work function tonight so time to get back on the train, so instead of catching the bus, I walked the 2.25ks from home to the station... nice and fresh start, but it felt good; and then once I hit the city another 1.5ks down to the office... I'm sitting at 188ks now so will hopefully smash the 200 by Thursday which still leaves me another 4 days to go and get even more K's for my soulmate... Ant, you are the love of my life, and I hope that this challenge I am undertaking with Fi in your memory brings some solace to you and the love your family and friends have for you baby 💚💚💚 #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 24 - the smile slowly re emerges

Monday 24th Jul
I'm on the home stretch with the end of #KsforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt in sight... but i'm not slowing down... even after the great weekend, I still got another 8ks under my belt today for my big fella. After the great weekend I had, my smile started to re emerge today... Its hard, and I still have so many emotions running round my body, but I just think about the beautiful smiles I used to get from Ant and how he would want me to be smiling as well... #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 23 - Merricks to Red Hill Rail Trail

Sunday 23rd Jul
I got away for the weekend, which was great for my headspace; visiting my good friend Aunty Mac down Shoreham on Western Port Bay... I havent seen here since 2020 (thanks to Covid) so was great to catch up with her, Chris and the boys... This morning we decided to do my #ksforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt along the Merricks to Red Hill Rail Trail... We had breakfast at the Merricks General Wine Store, before tacking the 6ks of the trail... Little did we realise the heavens were about to open up, but we pushed on regardless for my Ant 💚💚💚 It was so great to be able to catch up this weekend and do todays walk with Lisa... #friends #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 21 - Early one on a stunning Saturday Morning

Saturday 22nd Jul
A quick 7 #ksforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt this morning. And a great morning for it Heading away for the evening to catch up with friends I haven’t seen in ages, so had to make sure I got some Ks in before I went… Like #mentalhealthsupport support you have to do a bit every day to make it matter. With a simple "R U OK?" we may start a life saving conversation.  #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself #inmemoryofAnt

Day 21 - 150ks for this man 💚💚💚

Friday 21st Jul
Today I clicked over 157 #ksforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt today... I smashed 10ks for the love of my life while listening to his last playlist - and making my work calls... Its been another challenging week both personally and a busy one at work (Its supposed to be a quiet time before the spring), so I just needed to get out and get some fresh air A massive thankyou to all my supporters as I march past 150ks, with nearly $3k in support. I feel so humbled by all the support from all you wonderful people; both for Ant and all those that struggle with their mental health... A massive call out to my major supporters in Cricket Australia, NEP and Hawkeye. Any donation no matter how small helps us get the message about mental health awareness out and hopefully prevent another family going through what we are… With 10 days to go I have 200ks (and more) is within my sights Thankyou #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 20 - and what a fresh day out

Thursday 20th Jul
Fresh is probably the easiest way to describe today… two walks really took it out of me with the cold winds that have been battering Melbourne for the last 24 hours. That said I still may step get 2 ks in at lunch and 3 #ksforRUOK #inmemoryorAnt when I got home. I’m almost at 150 ks and nearly $3k in support. Thankyou #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 18 - a long busy day - but still found d time for my K’s

Wednesday 19th Jul
It’s been a long day today working out of the office at three different sites, but I still found time to get in another 8 #ksforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt including a 3K wind down when I got home. I’ve always found a walk after work helps make your night, and your sleep easier - but even more so now with everything that is going through my mind 24/7 and will be for the months and years to come. The fresh air and deeper breathing helps clear the shit of the day out of your head. Today was a good day as I was so busy that my mind didn’t wander but it doesn’t mean I didn’t have times when I couldn’t stop thinking about my gentle giant #foreverinmythoughts

Day 18 - 8 weeks since you left us

Tuesday 18th Jul
Today marked 8 weeks since the big fella left us - and my life changed forever. Todays photo is the last pic we took together and it will always be special to me. We went for a drive up to Echuca for the day. I had only ever been there once before - I never had a proper look around, so Ant was able to show me the sights. And he had a ball. They had a display of steam engines, which he knew intimately, and was so excited to be able to share that with me. We walked around the town and ended with a coffee in one of the local pubs. where we spent some quality time... He was happy I worked from home today which was good as I struggled to concentrate - at lunchtime I went for a nice long walk, and got some calls done as well; and I also listened to his playlist which he built a couple of days earlier. I listen to the songs now and wonder if he built it for me... Lovely songs with meaning about us, and what he was going through... Another 10 #KsforRUOK #inmemoryofAnt today which were ver special to me on this day... #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 17 - the emotional roller coaster

Monday 17th Jul
Today hasn’t been a good day… a few stress triggers saw me leave the office early for everyone’s sake … I’m not blaming anyone it’s just been one of those days so I thought it best to remove myself from the situation! Not many k’s done at work today because of meetings, so as soon as I got home I got out in the fresh air and smashed 8 #ksforRUOK #inMemoryof Ant 💚💚💚 I’m feeling a little better now but tomorrow is another day #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Sunday 12 December 2021

Sunday 16th Jul
This was the day I first met Anthony in person. We have been chatting for weeks, and this Sunday he suggested we meet halfway between the two of us for a coffee. Halfway was Seymour and he chose Brewers Table. We met and talked for 2 1/2 hours, and I left thinking I’ve made a friend for life. The big giant gave me a beautiful hug as we were leaving, little did I know back, then he would become so special to me and my soulmate. I called into Seymour on my way back from Alexandra today, as an opportunity to go back to where it all began - and get a couple more Ks in along the way. #ksforRUOK #InMemoryofAnt

Day 16 - Memories

Sunday 16th Jul
This morning, I finally managed to start putting together some photos for around the house of my big fella. Once I’d this I went out into the brisk Melbourne morning air to do some more #ksforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt. The photos made me think of the good times, and it also allowed me to talk to him and tell him how much we all miss him, and if only he had reached out to one of us… I was happy, I was angry with him, I was sad; but it was great to be able to talk to him as I walked without any tears this time💔. I know this afternoon, or tomorrow could be very different, but it’s good now that we are almost 8 weeks on there is a glimmer of light that enables me to remember our good times together 💚💚💚 #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 15 - At it early…

Saturday 15th Jul
Today’s weather forecast for Melbourne is not exactly one for walking, so I got out and did my #ksforRUOK #inmemoryofAnt this morning. As fresh as it was, it was great to get some fresh air into the lungs and give me some motivation for the rest of the day… Fi and Hux are also out doing for Ant too this morning. Our motivation We start tommorow! We need to raise awareness for suicide prevention. Every day someone loses their fight with the black dog and we need to check in on each other. With a simple "R U OK?" we may start a life saving conversation. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 14 - Friday Night and 100ks down

Friday 14th Jul
Being a Friday night, I thought I'd share a pic of the big fella and me on a typical Friday night when we were together... Dinner and then chilling on the lounge... Oh how I miss this; but tonight I'm feeling great as I have clicked over the 100ks mark #ksforruok #InMemoryofAnt - but I'm not finished yet... with 17 days to go, I'm going to try and double my Ks for my love Ant 💚💚💚 This week has been very up and down, but at least now I am able to think about him sometimes without the tears and even sometimes with a smile... Its still hard as memories and dreams still overwhelm me at times, but I'm starting to feel a little easier as moves on... #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 13 - Today was a Good day

Thursday 13th Jul
Finally a good day after a rollercoaster week... Today was supposed to be a work from home day, but another visit to the MCG saw me in the office this morning and then home this afternoon, which allowed me to get out for a decent walk and more #ksforRUOK #inMemoryofAnt A really good walk saw me get another 7ks under my belt leaving me with only 5ks to go to reach the 100km goal... but i wont be stopping there... I'll keep going... I was also able to think about Ant today with a smile on my face... That made me feel REALLY good... Looking forward to smashing 100 tomorrow... #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 12 - a challenging day in Geelong

Wednesday 12th Jul
I'm writing this through red eyes as its been a challenging day returning to Geelong for work... Last time I was down there, was Anzac Weekend and Ant was with me for the footy... Ant had the best time down there... He was in his element... playing with the drone and then seeing how a TV Sport Broadcast is put together... He couldn't stop talking about it... Unfortunately I wasnt prepared for the trigger today so it all got a bit overwhelming... It was great to chat through it tonight with Hux while I did my #Ksfor RUOK #inmemoryofAnt #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 11 & 11k's

Tuesday 11th Jul
After a quiet weekend, Ive been making up for it the last couple of days... Today I was working at the MCG as spotter for our drone, so thought I'd record it on Strava... well 3km later we were done... Playing with the drone was one of Ant's favourite pastimes, so it was quite fitting to be doing K's at the same time... Had a few other things I had to do which I could have driven and done, but easier to walk and do it for Ant! #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 10 - Back to it…

Monday 10th Jul
After a weekend with very few KMs, today I got back to it for Ant… A quick couple of K’s around Docklands after the morning meetings, and then a nice 5km walk around home this evening… A little brisk tonight, but was worth it for the ‘me’ time remembering a great weekend and our great man who left us way too soon… 66km down so far, out of my 100km… my goal (and then some more) is creeping up fast for #KsforRUOK #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 9 - Ants Family Farm

Sunday 9th Jul
Being up in Wodonga with the family for the weekend, gave me the opportunity to spend last night out at Ants Family home where he grew up. We were planning on doing a big walk this morning, but the weather wasn’t favourable, so we went up to a hut he was building with his father. We couldn’t drive all the way there so I still manage to get 1 km in today in the drizzle. Very emotional visit

Day 8 - with Ants Boys

Saturday 8th Jul
After a rest day yesterday travelling up to Wodonga for the Festival of Malex, Ants two boys Alex and Max came with me today on their bikes as I clocked a couple of K’s for #ksforRUOK before the rain put paid to our walk. It was beautiful to be able to share this with them in memory of their Dad 💚💚💚

Day 6 and 52km down - past the halfway point

Thursday 6th Jul
Another work from home day has allowed me to get out and make my calls while I’m doing my #ksforRUOK... when I'm not doing my calls, I'm thinking about my boy Ant and what I would give for one more day with him. While each day gets that tiny bit easier; even 6 weeks on, it's still so raw and it only feels like yesterday that my life was turned upside down and pulled out from under me. The #KsforRUOK Challenge though, gives me time to reflect on what has happened and how valuable our life is, and how it can change in an instant. If your ever feeling overwhelmed, make sure you reach out to your loved ones or one of the many support services out there, so your loved ones dont have to go through what we are going through . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 5 - The G

Wednesday 5th Jul
Changing it up a bit today, I was at the MCG for work, so I thought why not do a few laps of the concourse for today’s #KsForRUOK… I would’ve done a few more if I had the time, but I did it hear just because! And after only 5 days I'm already at 42km down... #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mensmentalhealth #mentalhealthisreal #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #selfcare #endthestigma #loveyourself

Day 4 - Docklands

Tuesday 4th Jul
What a miserable winter day in Docklands today to get some K’s under my belt… I found a gap between the rain to get out… Been a bit of a challenging day with talking to some colleagues that I haven’t seen in a while, but the support and understanding of everyone at work has been so overwhelming. A big thankyou to everyone who has donated to the cause in Memory of Ant and #KsforRUOK so far... My goal has been smashed but there is still more to do for #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport

Day 3 - 30k’s down

Monday 3rd Jul
Work from home today has allowed me to get out and get my K’s up while still working (it’s great doing your phone calls out and about) Todays photo is one of me an the big fella on one of our regular walks in Cussen Park in Tatura earlier this year. 💚💚💚

Day 3 - Quick block before my Monday Meetings

Monday 3rd Jul
Work from home today, so a quick walk around the block before my two hours of Monday meetings. A bit fresh out there still this morning, but hopefully after lunch, it will be a bit nicer and I’ll go for a longer walk.  

Day 2 - Pascoe Vale

Sunday 2nd Jul
Todays walk was my usual weekend route via Jack & Daisy for a coffee. Little emotional on 2 fronts. Last time I had brunch there it was with the big fella and he loved it . Secondly my co-walker Fiona was starting her walk today as well up at the farm where Ant grew up. Even as I type this it brings tears to my eyes. 😢 Looking forward to doing that next Sunday. But not bad going so far 15km for the cause

Day 1 - Cussen Park Tatura

Saturday 1st Jul
What better place than to start, then where Ant and I always used to walk in Tatura. Can I say, as hard as it was to do this by myself without my soulmate; it was also very calming, knowing I was doing it in his memory, and I could feel him with me every step of the way

1 day to go!

Friday 30th Jun
With one day to go, and having today off, I thought why not get in early and start clicking those K’s

Very overcast here in Melbourne today, and only 13°

This is my first weekend at home since Ant’s passing - challenge I think is an understatement -  as I would have been at his for the weekend. I will get through it, but #KsforRUOK will be my distraction when I need it

Thankyou to all that have donated so far - I’m doing this for Ant 💚💚

Early start on KsForRUOK!

Friday 30th Jun
Thought I’d get in early
