What do you want for Christmas?
This seems to be a question I'm being asked over and over again and my answer is......I don't want cards (emails are great and free).......I don't need any particular presents as there is nothing that I actually need right now - so if you want to make me feel better about Christmas this year, what I'd like you to do is donate just £1 to my chosen charity Trinity Hospice.
As I explained previously, raising cash for them will make me feel like I'm actually kicking this cancer up the arse :-)

Big thank you to all those that have already donated - much appreciated.
My sister raised a valid point that I feel needs mentioning...those that have donated already have donated in excess of what I requested (which was a pound or just purchase one less box of cards and donate to Trinity Hospice instead)..... because those that have donated gave extra, some may now feel that their £1 is not as worthy - but it IS....
I said it before and I'll say it again, if everyone that read my blog gave just £1 then I would have exceeded my target and had to set a new one. Whether it's 50p or £1 it all adds up and every bit helps.
