TJ Walkabout

TJ Walkabout was held on Saturday - a walk from The Oval to Lord's - in dreadful weather conditions. Only a few people braved the elements but those present enjoyed their day. Money raised from sponsorship is shared between Terry and the Brian Johnston Memorial Trust and we thank all who supported the cause. Special thanks to the Brookes family for all their hard work and to John Fingleton (Fingers) for his excellent fundraising effort.
This week also saw the passing of Terry's Mum. She was 92 and lived a full life. Sadly we were unable to travel to Perth for the funeral so we held a memorial service in our garden with friends and family. It gave Terry a chance to say goodbye.
The Adelaide Test starts this week and Terry is determined to attend a few of the days albeit only part days. His health continues to be poor although some days are better than others. He tires after only the most minimal excercise - a walk to another room can leave him breathless.
Most days are spent with a little activity between naps.
Another close friend of ours, Peter Johnson (Grumpy) is very unwell and currently in hospital.
What a year 2010 has been! Can't wait to see what 2011 brings.
