It's time for Moonwalk Edinburgh!

Moonwalk day has arrived.
The sun is shining.
The mermaid outfits are finished.

The arrival of the crocheted fish from dottycookie had me squealing with excitement.

In the interests of modesty, and in order not to frighten anyone away I haven't posted a photo of me modelling the outfit, but here is my bra - everyone wears a decorated bra to increase awareness of breast cancer,

and here is the complete outfit, with a silk shrug for a little warmth, and a long blue/green mermaid plait.  Just need to add some sparkly makeup and the transformation will be complete.

Tonight whilst you are sleeping in your beds I shall be walking 26.2 miles around Edinburgh (up Arthur's Seat, and along the coast) starting at about midnight and hopefully finishing at around 8am.  It has been lovely having you along with me virtually on all my training walks, all 492 miles of them, and thank you so much to those who have sponsored me. It means such a lot to me to know that every mile walked will make a difference to the future of breast cancer treatments.

Wish me luck, hopefully I'll be back tomorrow - with  a medal.

you can read more about my fund raising and sponsor me here - thank you xxxx


  1. Hi Tess,

    Love your mermaid outfit and what a wonderful thing you are doing for the future of helping with breast cancer treatment,

    A few years ago I made a bear for a fundraiser for NZ Breast cancer foundation.
