Blog Birthday - Help me celebrate!

One year ago, my blog  came to life — 12 months of blogging!! 12 months of fun and friendship, caring and sharing around the world!!
Thank you everyone for helping to make this an exciting new area of my life, by visiting, commenting, emailing, and sharing through your own blogs. So many ideas out there, so much inspiration, so many friendly, passionate people!!! (So many links to blog-hop to!!)
Now, to the relevance of the 'cow' photo!!! Since the flooding over the weekend, I have been spending a bit of time in the cowshed, while the MOML repairs fences, waterlines, races and and so on. And cowshed time is good thinking time -  'the girls' have helped me decide how to celebrate my blogging birthday!!!
NO gimmicks!!! For every comment I have in response to this post, I will donate $1 towards brain tumour (cancer) research.
Those of you who regularly follow my blog will know that my father is suffering from brain tumours; please help me to donate towards this area to help give families more hope in the future.
As I said there are no gimmicks, I don't care if you are a follower or not, and you are welcome to spread the word (gulp - within reason!!) - and one comment each please!
Thanking you in advance :-) bloggy hugs to you all.
(and I hope you are getting more chances to sew than I am!!).

My mother-in-law also had brain tumors. She passed away before my children were born 33 years ago, and I've always wished she could have been here to see my daughters. Such a worthy cause. Good luck! And happy blogoversary. (Oh, and my mother-in-law didn't pass away from the brian tumors...guess I should have said that earlier...my apologies).

Happy Blogaversay ... I do enjoy your blog and just want you to know that you have my support and love 100%.

Tania said...

Hi Raewyn, I know I am a couple of years late for this post lol, I just discovered your blog through FNSI and have been enjoying reading it. I saw the photo of the cow's udder and wondered what it was about, and hence found this post. My father passed away from a brain tumour, and it is such a difficult thing to go through - for them of course, and for you. I have not read enough of your blog yet to know the result of your Dad's brain tumours, but I just wanted to say that I know what a hard time it is for everyone. Take care xx
