    3/10= 25secs and struggled! Hoping this will become a lot easier towards the end!
    5/10= 2x25 secs slightly easier today
    6/10= 2x30 secs
    7/10= 30 secs
    8/10= 2x35 secs
    Sadly my back locked up for a while haven't been able to do this challenge. But it's better now and back on it although having to start again a bit gingerly....
    18/10= 2x20 secs

    Total time= 4min 35secs (a long way to go)

    Just had the most dreadful 10 days of my life – my son has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

    So sorry to hear this!

    Thankyou @CocoLoris for your message of support. We're waiting for a full diagnosis and treatment plan, taking one day at a time. I'm at home now, but at least I'm within driving distance so I can visit frequently.

    @lesdarts180 - good to hear that. And taking it 1 day at a time is really smart. You are showing a lot of courage. Hope it will go well. Keep us posted (if you wish of course)

    @lesdarts180: stay strong! If he needs an operation, then he'll be free of the tumor and everything will be okay. I knew of a young boy who went through such a thing and he was more than fine afterwards, he must be well now, too! So it's good that they identified the cause, even if it's so scary. It's also so good that you can help them! I am sure your support means a lot and helps them through this! :flowerforyou:
