As you guys know I am not one of those bloggers that shares every aspect of my life – I don’t think there is anything wrong with the bloggers that do, but it’s just not my bag.
For the most part what you see with me on the blog is what you get – in ‘real life’ I try not to take like too seriously, I am tongue in cheek, for the most part I do my best to be positive, and I try to be funny….oh and I swear A LOT! In fact when I meet people for the first time virtually everyone says that I speak and sound exactly like they image I do….which always makes me happy.
So with this in mind, last year I shared some stuff with you guys about my Mother-in-Laws battle with cancer a while ago. This isn’t an easy thing for me to talk about generally even now, but I wanted to really talk with you guys about how important I think cancer charities are. And specifically I wanted to encourage you to get involved in the Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning in support of Macmillan.
Well it’s that time again – I have teamed up with my buddies at M&S to highlight again this year that cancer is no f@&ing joke ( see I told you I swear a lot) and it affects us all.
So this Friday (28th Sept) yet again M&S are supporting this hugely important charity by hosting Macmillan coffee mornings in their in-store cafes the length and breath of the country, to help raise much needed funds to help kick cancer into touch.
If you can’t make it into your local M&S on Friday morning don’t worry, you can still support this brilliant event by pop in and buy a selection of M&S cakes and host your own coffee morning – I am talking Victoria sponge, cupcakes, red velvet cake, coffee cake, lemon cake….and in my opinion best of all there is limited edition special Colin the Caterpillar cake who is decorated in Macmillan purple and green…any reason to buy a Colin is okay with me. And the best part is that with each purchase you make of the specially selected goodies M&S will make a donation to Macmillan.
This is a win-win folks – cake and raising money for an incredibly important charity. What’s not to love about that.
And if I still haven’t convinced you that you should get involved this year with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in support of Macmillan – in the time it has taken you to read this blog post someone else in the UK has been diagnosed with cancer.
