OCTOBER - Be Breast Aware

As it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month I have decided to try and feature something about this campaign on each blog. Even if it is just an example of some of the lovely gifts that they have on offer, I just want to highlight the fact that when you give a gift you can also make a difference to thousands of women (and in rare cases, men).

I have just sent my good friend a box of flowers from local florest Greens and Things as she is recovering from a minor op to her leg. I wish I had known that Interflora had hooked up with Breast Cancer Care to produce a flower shop which donates 15% of money spent to the charity. I will bear it in mind for future gifts! Follow the link below for the flowershop information.

On my front, I had planned to paint my nails yellow for Livestrong Day which takes place tomorrow on 2nd October but sadly, I have been unable to locate polish that colour. Instead I will be wearing my Livestrong wrist band and my horrible yellow hospital gown for my last dose of radiotherapy (yes the last one is cheating a tad!).
Personally, my mum has been fantastic taking care of the children and me all week. She has been a complete and utter star, staying over on an air bed in Joe's room and making sure I got enough rest. Thank you Mum, I love you xxxxx

Jason is busy decorating our room. The new wardrobes are fab, we have chosen our new carpet which is going to be fitted next week and our new bed will be delivered shortly afterwards. I am so excited. I will try to post some piccies but you must understand that our bedroom is so tiny, they may not turn out so well!!!

In the meantime, I am off to paint my toenails PINK!


  1. Woo toenails!! Must do many great shades of pink to choose from.

    Brava to your fab mum...please give her a hug from me to say thank you for taking such good care of you...and the boys!!!

    Joining our hands and raising them in the air and we say "no more breast cancer" -- let's conquer this beast!!!

  2. Nothing but up from here sweet Sarah.

    Love Renee xoxo

  3. I am glad that your mom was such a help. The one thing that I always was gladdest about was that my children were grown and gone. To try to deal with radiation and chemo and still manage the responsibilities of 'mom' would have been overwhelming. Hurrah for your mom!


I value each and every comment left, they keep me going and give me strength!
