Ready for the Off!!
On Saturday, I became one of over 200 bloggers who are taking a baton from Land's End to John O'Groats as part of #teamhonkrelay to raise funds for Sport Relief
. I am part of Team Honk
Birmingham and it was my responsibility to take the baton from Worcester to Bearwood, West Birmingham.

My Team Honk day started at around 9.30am where I collected the baton from Nikki of Stressy Mummy
and her lovely children at the rather glamorous location of the lay-by by junction 7 of the M5. Next, I travelled home and decorated my pushchair. Many thanks to Manie and the Opal Aura
team for donating the decorations and helping to decorate the pushchair.

Next I walked down into Halesowen (with honks from the Opal Aura team all the way down the hill!) and got on the bus with Thomas and Daniel. We got some very strange looks during our 20 minute bus journey. We arrived at Bearwood Bus Station (another glamorous location!) and were met by Erica of 92three30
and A Little Luxury For Me
and her son H.
Daniel with the baton
During all the excitement, Daniel slept pretty much all morning until we met Erica when he woke for a feed. I am sure the reason he stayed asleep so long despite the cold and windy weather was because he was warm and snuggly in his red snowsuit
, kindly donated for the event by The Essential One
. Many thanks to Katie from The Essential One for sending the snowsuit and keeping the youngest member of the #teamhonkrelay nice and warm!
My leg of the relay may be over but the baton does not reach John O'Groats until 23rd March so please keep donating. Every penny counts!! You can donate to Team Honk Birmingham here
. All support is greatly appreciated.
See what my fellow team members did for their part of the relay:
