Accident prone as ever, on Monday I fell down our stairs at home with Cassandra in my arms. if the baby gate hadn't of been there I would of been okay, but it was and in my endeavours to protect my baby girl, I fell over the gate twisted my knee and landed on my ankle.

Cassie was more shocked than anything, not a mark on her (thank the Lord) but a 4 hour stint with Mum up at A&E determined that I had indeed twisted my knee and may have a fractured bone in my foot.

Crutches and plenty of painkillers later I'm finally up and around, just not walking too well....

My ever grateful thanks to my Mum who's been round every day since just to play with the boys and look after Cassie so I can rest my leg.

Lee's also doing a fabby job picking up the slack from my daily chores (bar the cooking and washing of course)!!!!

Let's see what the school run next week has to offer....?!!

Run, run as fast as you can!

I've gone and done it now, I've registered for this year's Race for Life!

I've decided that I'm going to run (jog, or even just walk) my first ever Race for Life this year for a charity I truly believe in. Lee and I give a regular donation every month to this worthwhile cause, but as Tesco are fond of saying - "Every little helps".

From my personal perspective, I was so saddened at the loss of my Grandad who died of cancer but his last weeks were made a little more comfortable due the care and dedication of the McMillan nurses that came to see and assist him every day. My Mother-in-law's sister also has this terrible illness and her time is running out too...

I'm attending the Southend Race for Life 5k on Sunday, 23rd May 2010. If you're around in Southend around 11am, please come along to Garons and cheer me on!

I'd like to ask that if you could spare a few pennies, that you please help me to reach my target and maybe exceed the £150 I'm aiming for. It's really easy to sponsor me (the wonders of technology) just click on the link below.

Many thanks!!! Photos after the event will be posted!
