Awesome - the cards are made and sent. Just need to print the family letter and send the rest tomorrow. Better late than never. Gifts are all pretty much done - just need to wrap a couple. Cooking finished. Puddings were offered to class mates rather than cards.

Brilliant - how good is that? To be honest - to good - waiting for that OH DAMN moment...

Breast Check Reminders Update

Please watch this before you read the rest of this post. (Thank you Leanne for the link).

I have been doing Breast Check Reminders for some time now. I had intentions of setting up a separate blog to allow people to receive reminders to check their breast. It is something we just cannot be complacent about. However I have since discovered there are a few other sites that already do this. It seems silly to make yet another site.

SO sign up for one of the links below to receive a friendly email to check your breast. Best to sign up to check your breast five - eight days after you have started to mensturate - or if these are irregular or if you have begun menopause check the same time each month.

Just to take this one step further can you please email two friends (JUST TWO) and ask them to sign up then ask them to email two friends to do the same. Imagine how many people we could get to be reminded to check their breast!

I will continue with my monthly checks here on this blog as well.

Don't forget men also get breast cancer - I found a link for them...

Here are the sites - go and sign yourself up for one.
