Thank you.........

to everyone who joined us for our MacMillan evening. We made £215.85 from the raffle, refreshments, card making and massage. A massive thank you to the rest of my little gang, think we did brill - even though I say so myself. Unfortunately there were cakes left over - and the wine didn't even get opened (don't worry, I've managed to give them a good home).

Sorry I haven't been on sooner to upload pictures of the evening, or say thank you. We had to go to Bournmouth the day after, as my Gran is very poorly with Cancer - makes the whole fund raising even more poignant. Thankfully she doesn't seem to be in to much pain, and we hope she can go home or to a hospice to get the care she needs. It's very sad, especially for my Dad, my cousin Louise and auntie Linda who are doing an amazing job of looking after Gran and doing shifts of hospital visits. Just wish I was closer.

Anyhow, not going to babble on, need to work for Tuesday (mmmm, enthusiasms a little tricky for that one!).

I'll be back soon to pop on photo's.

Well Done on making so much money, Had a wee look on Fabs Blog to see you all there, his pictures are great.
Sorry to hear about Gran. I know exactly what you are going through as we lost my Grandad a year ago just now to cancer and it was such a hard time for everyone. Especially Granny who decided to take him home after diagnosis and managed for 8 weeks at 78 with a bed bound husband! He went into a home for his 4 weeks. So thinking of you all at this time.

Really pleased your special evening went so well. You have every right to be glad about the result.

As for the reason behind the fundraising...like your Gran, my Dad is living with a terminal cancer and the whole thing is teaching our family more about life than we could imagine we still needed to learn. It is an evil disease, isn't it Leonie? But the angels who work for organisations like the Macmillan nurses...well, mere written words cannot express my gratitude.
