schools open...


It's been a long haul, these last few days have been so hectic. Where are your trainers? What did you do with the new shirts? Why is your new blazer stuffed under your bed?

My poor house, where once there were clear surfaces there are now piles... piles of books, magazines, paper... what is it with kids and torn up paper? All my usual projects are piled up around the place, I think I need to sign back up with the FLylady. Fortunately I have an incentive, my friend is coming to stay and in order to find him a bed in the spare room, some major clearing is required.

I've also got to settle down and start mailing out to local schools so that I can sell jewellry at the Christmas Fairs.

Then there is the International Scarf Exchange, have to decide what to knit for my pal. Need to find out who they are too, I need to trawl my junk mail files in case the email is hiding.

Of course all of this is to take my mind off something very special...

Saturday 16th September 2006 I shall be jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet, strapped to an expert... I hope... all for charity.

I have set myself a goal, to raise £10,000 in a year for Cancerbackup. This charity is amazing, they were my main source of information written in understandable language. They have a 24hour helpline to call and sometimes it's easy to forget how important it is to support the charities that support the people who have, think they have or have a relative with cancer. Cancerbackup is available to anyone who has the internet. Nearly all the leaflets I found useful that were handed out at hospital were written by them. If you want to see the site go here...

If you would like to support my Leap please visit my page for donations. This is a clever system that means I don't have to collect in money from folks far afield and my friends all over the world can support me.

I'd really like to reach at least £2000 before I leap.

Find me at Noonie's Leap

Thanking you all in advance and hoping you'll pass this on...
