Great North Run: this Sunday, September 15 is the Great North Run in Newcastle. Some of you may know that my husband Charlie had a stroke last December whilst on business in Canada. Myself and my friend Liz are running the Great North Run in aid of the Stroke Association and the work that they do for stroke patients. Many have seen us pounding the pavements so if you would like to sponsor this worthy cause (and give us the boost of running 13 miles!) you can find my donation page at
