Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

Hallo Everyone

I'm sorry I so rarely write a Blog these days but I tend to write essays and that takes time whereas I'm restricted to characters on Twitter and can have immediate reaction from my followers - over 3,500 - so I spend time on there.

So it's a bit cheeky but knowing that my Blog is read around the world - sounds grand but it's only a few here and there - I wonder if you might be interested in helping the Koalas, Roos and other wildlife decimated in the horrific Australian Bushfires.  

I was in 'I'm a Celebrity get me out of Here' in 2006. When we exited the Rainforest (it isn't a jungle??) they took most of our kit but left us with our Brasher Boots and Traditional AKUBRA Hats.  I decided to Auction mine, plus a signed photo of me coming out of the Camp (bubbly in hand) and, if you live near London, I'd travel to St. Pancras Station and meet in the Champagne bar to hand over the hat.  Akubras retail at around £150 and mine is sitting doing nothing.  I could post it within the UK.

On my last day in Australia the company allowed me to visit a Wildlife Sanctuary at Currumbin. I cannot get any news on whether it still exists or has been destroyed in the fires.  I would donate the money to Currumbin or else SAVEM Australia.

If you have a Twitter account mine is @Jan_Leeming and I'd be thrilled if you could make an offer either publicly or by Message - I've opened messages so that I can receive them even if you don't follow me.

So again apologies for the cheek in asking for help when I've virtually abandoned my Blogs but hope you will understand.

That Twitter account - @Jan_Leeming

Many thanks and I will try to write the odd blog but I'm currently not travelling to Fabulous places so there's not a great deal abut which to write.

Hope you all have a Happy and Healthy New Year.  The older I get the more I realise 'Your Health is your Wealth'

Jan xx
