By the light of the silvery moon

I must confess I am feeling a little daunted at this moment

Tonight I will be walking 26.2 miles around London
(with 15,000 other participants I should add!)

Yes, the MOONWALK!

We start here and slowly wend our way around London and all in a decorated bra!

This idea struck horror in me initially but now that I have feathered "it" within an inch of "it's" life I have grown quite fond of it, it has taken on a personality of it's own and now I look at "Tweet" as though she were another member of the Lane menagerie.

Look out for "Tweet" and I as we stride along Embankment!

A great motivation for me is to see London at night.
Cities have wonderful personalities and it is amazing to see them in the relative calm of the early morning hours.

I know that this will be a very welcome sight at the end of what I hope will be a 6 hour walk!

And the promise of a hug and a proud glint in the eye from Mr.Lane will spur me on!

Good luck to everyone taking part
See you tonight


(After the event)


I actually stayed awake all night....oh and walked 26.2 hours in 6.15 hrs!

Thank you so very much for all your good wishes, they helped me plough on through the wee small hours ~ freezing cold in my feather clad bra!

Here I am at the Moonwalk Village before we set off, you can tell by the tip of my nose I was already nithered at this point!

Against all my principles of good taste, here I am sporting "Tweet"

You can tell I really wish I wasn't in this picture by my fixed smile and psychotic stare!!!

I am still a little shell-shocked from the effort I think!



  1. Welldone you for taking part in such a great cause. It'll certainly be an experience you'll never forget. Am trying to picture your feathery concoction!

    Good luck. I hope you will all have a wonderful time and that the weather will hold.

  4. Good luck :) my sister did it last year, she was exausted! x

  5. Good luck my dear - not that you need will be fabulous and to see London all lit up and glittering (at night) will be something special it itself - I'm sure.

    Big hugs from here - in advance.
