This is one of my absolute favourite pics from all of our wonderful photo shoots and one for all the LeapStars! ONE MORE SLEEP!

It is just one more sleep until The Press Summer Starter…. And the above picture is one of my favourites from our photo shoot from our interviews with Emily Spink. This one is for the LeapStars – punishment for Riwai as he had to plank with me on his back!
I have spent the last few months spending Friday mornings at the Burwood Hospital getting my back strong enough to make the epic 4km journey tomorrow without my crutches. It has been an amazing journey so far and I know tomorrow I will enjoy every minute of the event. I have butterflies but know that Nan is on my shoulder.
I did my last event with her and Riwai would push her in the wheelchair while she admired all the legs – true story and her words! Before that Mum and I would push her.
Because weekend would have been her 90th birthday it is even more special for us all. Today Riwai and I took her handprint to the tent where the after party will be. We will be having a sausage sizzle and lots of people milling around – I am sure she would have loved it.
This year for the first time ever I will also be donning a Tutu! It made us realise that I have never needed one as have always been on the sidelines cheering in support. Tomorrow my newly designed one will get it’s very first outing and we are both excited! They both look amazing and to top off our fabulous new Pink and Green Tutus we will have yellow wigs in support of Ronald McDonald House .
So if you are in Christchurch keep and eye out for us.. and if you aren’t we will have pictures up tomorrow night for you 🙂
Huggle Buggles to you all and I look forward to sharing all the stories with you tomorrow. Love you Nan and you will always be in my heart
