January has been a very busy month for us visiting friends across the country and unfortunately our weekend walks have suffered because of it, but we seem to be back on track now and Matt's been very good at keeping up his training during the week.  As some of you know, Teri will be working as a Postwoman again in two weeks time, so her fitness should improve dramatically once she's walking around four hours every day again!  A few weeks ago we walked around Castle Combe, and this weekend we went to the racing country of Fyfield Down, walking over a number of gallops.

We're also in the process of arranging some more fundraising events.  On Monday 9th February, Teri will be spending the day in Asda's foyer with collection tins so hopefully we should raise a fair amount of money from that.  Matt is planning a charity 'Pie & Poker Night', Teri is arranging a 'Girls' Night In' and we're both thinking of organising a Treasure Hunt for Easter weekend - please see the 'Events' page on this website where more information will be updated soon.

We received our next information pack from the British Heart Foundation yesterday, telling us more detailed information on insurance, weather, flights and what to expect on a typical day's travel.  Most days we have to rise at around 5am/5.30am, and on the final day of the trek we need to be up at 4am!!

The weeks seem to be moving really fast, and it's getting so exciting knowing that we'll be heading for Peru in just over three months time!
