End of week two :P

Short blog this week as it’s nearly midnight and I need to be up at 5am to get to the BBC. I’m playing a part in a few episodes of a Scottish soap at the mo, while also trying to keep the ball rolling to secure sponsors, and train for a 550day trek…

Highlights of week 2: speaking to 50,000 listeners across the world www.sunnygovanradio.com. Meeting a world famous clothes designer and being measured for the eye-catching outfit he’s designing and donating to the Road to Change (Exciting announcement coming soon) AND booking a gig with TOM URIE (and pals) at Glasgow’s hottest new music and arts venue The Glad Cafe, May 7th, to raise cash for the Road to Change!!!

All in all a great week…I did however, temporarily lose sight of how I’m getting the essential Motorhome for the walk, where I’ll be sleeping for 18months, as the companies I’d been holding out hope for all evaporated at once…but as my American colleague, and constant source of inspiration, Angela Rose, tweeted today: “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” -Thomas A. Edison I’ll find my Van, just watch…I have 46 days till I set off: miracles only take a second…

Big shout out to my fellow advocate and new mate, James Moran, who’s blog http://37yearwait.blogspot.co.uk you gotta read! Take two minutes today and do something good, by signing his petition for the release of chapter 20 from the Murphy report!

“Chapter 20 is the last remaining, censored chapter in Judge Yvonne Murphy’s report into the handling of clerical child sex abuse allegations by the Catholic Church and State.”

Bless yies :D

So week 3 needs to be the week where it all fell into place…and I’m sure it will be…From Tuesday, I’m embarking on an exciting 7 day reenergising program of pure natural and organic fruit and veg (juiced) and this liquid week will mark the new phase of training, launching the final 6 week countdown to the Road to Change. I’m excited…if a lil nervous…but nerves are good, means it matters…

Thank you all who’ve donated and please please keep sharing the link and giving what you can. Every penny goes towards the Road to Change a 10,000mile walk and awareness campaign for child sexual abuse prevention across the EU! http://www.justgiving.com/Roadtochange

Thanks for reading…

Valderi! (Nearly)



The Road to Spare Change…
