My Lovely Friends

Saturday 12 July 2014


Hello peeps, guess what??? ITS THE WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!! woooooo hooooooooo. We are off out with all the family today to the river & take the dogs. Me & the eldest took our dogs out for a walk last night & ending up covering a couple of miles lol. This was not long after me doing 5 miles on a cycle..........I was pooped last night lol. Hubster brought me a cheap mountain bike off someone to help strength train my legs some more for running...........last night was my first time on a bike for years, so 5 miles wasnt bad. However I had to come back due to my phone going flat & me needing water. Yep the bike didnt have a bottle rack..........guess what I'm getting today lol.

Anyway the reason for this post today is that I'm am literally on my knees BEGGING you to donate for Race For Life, the money goes to Cancer Research directly. I know a LOT of us peeps have been affected in some way by cancer, whether it be a family member or a close friend that has lost this awful battle to this awful disease.
Now I am aware some of you will be on some of the DT's that are offering prizes however if thats the case or even if you dont want certain prizes I will just let you pick the ones you want & then pick another winner for the other prizes. So for example if Vicky won it & she is on 3 of the DT's so wouldnt want, Bunny Zoes, Saturated Canary or LLC.......she would win the LOTV stamps & I would draw a winner for the other prizes. If that does happen I will also send some secret candy to the winner, so you would still get a lot more for your £2 entry.

Come on peeps its £2...........thats it, over in the UK its a loaf of bread you are giving up & I'm sure we can all give a loaf of bread up. If everyone donated £2 imagine how far that would go for Cancer Research............come on peeps this money is helping to 'Save Lives' what is more important than saving lives. If you dont want to be entered into the candy, thats fine then you can of course donate £1..........yep just £1 will help go towards Cancer Research that works solely on donations & if these donations ever stopped...........well so would their research. So would those lives they help save each & every year. Maybe they have helped save someone you know, they work hard for us so let us help them to work harder.
The run is in 8 days, yep 8 days. I still have so much training to do as bad health has really affected me but I am determined to do this even if it means crawling. However it would be so much better if I was able to raise more money, please donate & help, I will be so grateful & I know the lives you will be helping to save will be soooooooo grateful, every £1 helps.
Links to candy & My Justgiving page are on my sidebar, hope you can help me out ;0)

From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank those that have donated, without you my get up & go would have got up & buggered off lol. Thank you for helping Cancer Research, you all totally rock!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you a bjillion times ;0)

Also a little plug in for Bunny Zoes as well cus look whats arriving soon...........
Yes new Magnolia's..... If you would like to pre-order these oh so cute new Magnolia's then pop on over to Bunny Zoes as she is doing 10% off each stamp on pre-order...........come on think of the money you will save ;0)

Its a new sewing machine, its the Brother FS-40 & you can get it here, it also comes with a cover & an extension table which is awesome. Its fab I love it, its sooooooo much quieter & lighter than my old one & tbh my old one isn't really that old.........probably about 2-3 years I think. I am doing more sewing now as I am making toys for my grandkids & Natty. I also make curtains & I've got outside & inside cushion covers to make ect. So this is awesome & will get used..........a lot lol.
