Cor luv-a-duck

I've just adopted a duck!
I know, I know - you'd think I have enough bills to deal with. (Groan.)

Anyway, this is the very best of causes.
I've mentioned before that I have a friend who runs a charity called ALD Life.
Her younger son has recently had a bone marrow transplant to prevent the progression of the disease.
(You can read about his older brother here.)

Yet she still finds time and energy to fundraise for the charity.
Her latest initiative has been to join in the Great British Duck Race.
On 31st August, up to 250,000 rubber ducks will float down the Thames to set a new world record and raise £££ for charities.

If you'd like to adopt a duck and help raise money for ALD Life, you can do so here.

Duck Olimpix? How cool. Hope you raise loads.

For whatever reason, I get all teary eyed when I think of all these ducks afloat.
I'm too sentimental, I know, but I think it's just the sweetest idea and sight to see.

Peaceful meditative ducks?

...floating merrily, merrily, merrily...

Ducks in a row, row, row... oh, never mind.

Oh but I do mind, Leslie. Very meditative ...
