"When you're younger you can eat what you like, drink what you like and still climb into your 26 inch waist trousers and zip them closed. Then you reach that age...24, 25...your muscles give up, they wave a little white flag and without any warning at all you're suddenly a fat bastard!"
And if you think that quote is right about being 25, it sure as hell is when you're 47!!
I'll get back to the topic of this post shortly, but for now, indulge me a minute or two, with a post I've had in 'draft' for a month or so...

Now, it could just have been that the pants were still new and stiff and need wearing to flex them a bit. No, really...stop sniggering at the back there...it could! I suspect however that the sad truth is more like...
- My eyes are NOT bigger than my belly! I eat too much! And as a result, I'm a tad closer to a 33" waist than a 32" at the moment!
So, that's one thing I've learnt through the last three months or so. Which leads neatly back to the theme of this lil' blog post, other things I've learned this year so far...
- If you really must start training for a longboard trek in December in the UK, don't expect to get out on yer board much before March!
- The closest I am to an 'athlete' is having Athletes Foot!
- Blue is the generally adopted colour to raise awareness of autism!
- Take your time to find what works for you before looking for sponsors.
- LISTEN to those with more experience!
- Autism is EVERYWHERE!

500 bands would cost £210.00 and potentialy generate an increased donation of £290 to make £500, again asuming all the bands were sold. I don't want to risk a large donation by not selling all the bands, so the bands would be made in THE LONG PUSH 2013 colours, so they could still be sold next year too.
So the two questions are: Would you guys buy the bands for £1 each and...is there a corporate sponsor out there who will make the donation to fund the bands please? I hope you'll contact me either on here, at the Facebook page or at the e mail address with any feedback, or if you are one of those sponsors coming forward to help the cause.
