I had a long post planned for today highlighting Livestrong Day and what it means to me. Unfortunately I've run out of time. Tomorrow is Mollie's birthday and I have spent most of the morning looking for her present and card which I had put somewhere safe away from prying eyes. Just as I was about to give up and rush off to the shops to re buy the present I found it, phew *breathes a big sigh of relief*. I have her cake in the oven, she is going to bring it to school in the morning to share with all her class. I still can't find the card so I'm going to make her one and I've just designed some jewellery which I have to get made before she comes home from school at 2.30pm.

This afternoon I have to bring Ben to his swimming lesson then it's a mad dash home to shove food down everyones gullets before I dash back out to play the first summer league match at my tennis club. Will somebody please tell the rain clouds that this is a summer league match therefore some sun or at the very least no rain would be much appreciated!

As today is Livestrong day I recommend reading these posts which highlight the day through food and statistics or these blogs where the writers share their battles with cancer.

Although you didn't have time to post your thoughts, the links you provided are each so relevant (I recognized several).

The whole "running out of time" is the story of my life these days...I'm just NOW catching up with Fun Monday (and BEFORE) posts...:/. Off to read more of Peppermint Tea :).

Happy birthday MOLLIE!!! :-)

good luck for your league. Perhaps it's a blessing if there's no sun as long as it's not raining?

Happy birthday to Mollie. Reminds me of the days when my son used to bring cakes and sweets at school for his birthday. His "Miss" and his friends would make fun.

Hope you have a good summer league tennis match, and that the sun shines as never before. We'll take all the rains. Yes, it's raining over here, so you won't have a single drop at yours.
