Actually, most of my weeks are good weeks but this week I'm feeling reflective and wanted to share it.
I gave in and agreed to take two Harvest Festivals. Both went OK. I had a little giggle at at myself when the warden was preparing the produce to take to pensioners and asked me if I would like something. I was about to say, "But it's for old people" then remembered that I'm a pensioner and gratefully accepted a couple of potatoes to bake and have with cheese and butter.
I've been for my annual mammogram. I have a high risk of breast cancer (80% risk I am told) so had a mastectomy a few years ago but I still have to go for check-ups. Mammograms are no picnic for anyone but post mastectomy they are often excruciating but this time it wasn't too bad. I've got a clinical examination in a couple of weeks but right now I'd like to say thank you to everyone who fund raises for cancer research. Because of you my genetic risk has been identified and I am offered monitoring to protect myself.
I had a small competition win, this time with the date of birth lotto. Just £10 but very nice. (The link is possibly my referral link. I can't check. Sorry about that.)
A couple of weeks ago I was able to share some of my good fortune with a bloggy friend by sending her some books I had won in a another competition and when I got back from the mammogram there was a letter from her. I always get excited at real snail-mail and in this letter was this lovely Harris tweed needlecase. Thank you, Mama! (Quite apart from pretty needlecases she's got a great idea for soap for children. Take a look.)
