April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
Once there were two lovely, happy girls, full of fun. One lived on a farm in the Netherlands, one lived by the sea in England. They’d never met but followed a band, seeing what each other wrote, funny, clever things. Soon they began to write, from England to the Netherlands, from the Netherlands to England. They became best friends and one day the lovely Dutch girl took an aeroplane and flew to see her friend, in real life. They found each was even more kind, nice and lovely than they’d thought. They became best friends and lived happily ever after.
