Knickers to it.

 It was mildly surprising to see what looked very much like somebody's knickers strung across the fence as I drove to work at 7.45am. After I'd finished curiosity got the better of me and I went back to find out what it was all about. Turns out this month it's the 'Pants to Ovarian Cancer' campaign to raise awareness. It did what it set out to do and got my attention. Having lost my Auntie to it I'm sharing the info as it's a tricky one to detect in the early stages and it's by far and away the best bunting I've ever seen.




Have a great weekend...we're working so one very early start and no scope for any mischief making, but I so solemnly swear to get back to it as soon as I get the chance!!

  1. You get our 'prize' for post of the month and we might even join in the bunting thing. Aunty B died of ovarian cancer - ticked the boxes on all those symptoms long before it was diagnosed. She was found to have one of those BRCA gene mutations (for which the whole family has now been tested and those confirmed to carry it also will be getting extra monitoring to early catch any cancers). Thank you for this. F

  2. Jenny Eclair did a documentary on craftism a couple of years ago and made some of those knickers - they're a brilliant way of raising awareness! xxx
