They want to find out what kinds of things our busy hands get up to every day. So they're asking you to share a day in the life of your hands.

Wonder Girl turned two today. She is an amazing little girl. Sweet, caring, and determined with (luckily for her since she has me for a mother) a fabulous sense of humour.
I love the beach. It's literally my favourite place in the whole wide world. My most local beach is Weston Super Mare. Known endearingly as Weston Super Mud for it's lack of actual sea. It's lovely if you like amusement arcades, fun fair and donkey rides but I prefer my beaches more au natural. Think miles and miles of naked sand and sea.

Imagine if every working person in the UK could do the same. That would mean roughly 3.36 million people all giving one day a year. This would add up to an impressive 64615 weeks work for charity across Read More.
