So close!

Ok so I'm back. We had a couple of days without Internet. I survived. Just...
The linen press looks a whole lot more Martha-ish and the bookshelf in the guest bedroom is now arranged in alphabetical order. Amazing what you can do when you don't have emails to send and mindless blog posts to write. I actually used Tinker's nap time for productive things, I even did some weeding!

While I was away I noticed so many of you have been onto my sponsorship page. Thank you all so very much for getting behind me and helping to raise money for cancer research. I must say it has me worried now, with so much support I may actually have to live through the run to come back and tell you what it was like. I was counting on collapsing about 200metres into it.

If you are wondering, I'm now at $919. Amazing! Almost at a thousand dollars... so close- anyone else feel like pitching in? It would be nice to get to the $1000 mark by this weekend.

The site ranks you according to funds raised, being the type-A personality that I am, this has me itching to win. Right now I'm at #6, a few thousand behind the top spots. We all know that the combination of my inherent laziness and the 10 kilos I've still got to lose post-baby means that I'll never win the run but wouldn't it be nice if I raised the most money?

I always wanted to be a doctor. Shame I'm not smart enough. This may be the closest I get to finding a cure for cancer. So since my best friend now has cancer on her lungs I thought someone else might like to *COUGH COUGH* cough up some money!

Nothing like a lame joke for the cancer patient. Pretty please, help me get to a thousand by the weekend.
