October is... cancer awareness month

Now and then it's time to feel grateful for small mercies and lend a hand to support a good cause - no matter how hectic our life is. I'm at bursting point right now with a full-time job, freelance work on top, PTA duties (always a pleasure, never a chore!) and training for breastfeeding support. The house really needs a good clean and my daughter is asking for attention too - she has learned to read and write but needs a bit of help with her homework. I also really enjoy spending time with her, especially now that she is going to the afterschool club five days a week - I don't want any guilty trips to up my stress levels!

But back to good causes, I've been sent a lot of emails lately, but I always reserve a blog spot for Breast Cancer UK with its worthy Tickled Pink campaign. I'm too late to talk about the Stand UP To Cancer campaign, a joint Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK project that culminated in a fundraising extravaganza hosted by Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Dr Christian on Friday. If, like me you missed it, there is still time to donate - click here for more information.

So what has turned pink this month? 
Facebook aside, it's Fox's biscuits, specifically: 
Velvety Caramel & Honeycomb Cream, £1.59
Extremely Chocolatey Chunkie Cookies, £1.69
Melts Chocolate Viennese, £1.49
Party Rings Limited Edition all pink pack, £1.09 
2.5p from each pack will be donated to Cancer Research UK. Packs will be available until 31 October, so there is still time to stock up and support this good cause. 

There is also fab merchandise - in yellow, orange, white and black - available at TK Maxx, Tesco stores and online at - early Xmas present shopping anyone?
