Day 31: I Am Number (A)Six

With a Prisoner-punning headline like that, I should be wearing boating shoes , but today’s 365-day charity challenge is affected by that dreaded affliction… my job!

Best laid plans, and all that. I did have big plans for the last day of the first month of The Sole Of Sci-fi, but I forgot to factor in one thing – DEADLINE DOOM! Yes, today is the first deadline for Comic Heroes’ new weekly, digital-only spin off magazine, Comic Review, and there’s still tonds to do. So It’s a pretty basic photo and blog I’m afraid.

And now you’re going to see a man beg. Admittedly the charity total is well ahead of schedule, but it would be REALLY nice to break £400 by the end of the day, and the end of the first month. It’s all in aid of the seriously underfunded Alzheimer’s Research UK, so all I need is 15 of you to donate £1 each. So, go on, be generous. Donate by clicking here. After all, a lot of you must have paid recently!

Today’s pair continues the week of donated trainers theme, these ones thanks to Will Groves. Another pair of Asics! They seem popular at Future Publishing. And they’re really beginning to grow on me as a brand. These ones are hardly “box fresh” as Will apologised to me, but honestly that doesn’t matter. I never expected to get loans of spotlessly new shoes when I started this challenge, so here’s proof – in the name of this challenge I’ll accept trainers loans/donations no matter what state they’re in. And I suspect I’ll get worse! (In fact I know I will…)

Be seeing you.

Usual sign off:

Current total: £385 (be good to make £400 by the end of January, hint, hint)

• Remember this is all for charity, so any pennies or pounds you can spare PLEASE DONATE BY CLICKING HERE.

• Follow me on Twitter to make sure you see what trainers I’m wearing each day.

• If you have any trainers you could donate (either on loan or old pairs you’re getting rid of) which are size 9 (ish – I can do anything from 8 to 10) contact me at so we can arrange collection.

• Please, please, please leave comments below! I’m after ideas for mini-challenges, future photoshoots and how I can find enough pairs of trainers!
