Tigs - actually drew that one a while back but thought you'd appreciate it Doing a big mural in my impending niece/nephew's nursery very shortly so been digging through old pics with my sister and figured you might appreciate it I won't expect royalties if you want to use it haha

Loving the photos. Its so nice to read about people on here. Obviously the medical bit caught my eye to. Having read about carcinoid tumours, ive never actually met anyone with one/whose had one before. I love to raise money for charity, I try to do it at least once a year (as any more often friends tend to walk in the opposite direction when they see you coming)

 

Yes, they are not common apparently (though I'm sure you know much, much more than I do on the subject!). Luckily for me, for some reason it was causing me some pain and they thought it was appendicitis, then they didn't, then they did - spent two days in hospital then got sent home, went back again three weeks later and spent three days on a ward with each shift of surgeon changing their mind or not as to whether to operate or not...

They eventually did (I think just to prove, by that point, that I was malingering!) and by chance found the tumour, so the operation was... a little more invasive than first planned!

I know what you mean about fund-raising! Think my friends are sick of me metaphorically rattling the collection pot by now! Who have you raised for?

Awesome drawing Steve! And Tigger certianly likes it judging by the amount of bouncing going on

MelanieJayne - I was looking at Trailwalker too but from a runing point of view. I think you have to pay about £400 to enter but betwwen 4 of you that shouldn't be too terrible ... Might be interesting!

RRR - Aw thanks only a pencil sketch tho - the paintings are better!!

Just want to point out that if anyone notices that #AFewGoodBacon is trending on Twitter, it's nothing to do with me, promise.

So what are your last minute tactics to get some votes in then?

Good Morning Bacon!

We want to see photographic evidence of the paintings!

Hmm... not sure... how about a new campaign slogan?

"#TargetFreeMincePies", "Will strip for votes" or "Vote Steve Or I'll set my sister on you" (she's six months pregnant and rather hormonal)

Tigs - I'd love to and while I'm up your way, guess we might as well go and run a race!

RRR - looks like #ParisNeedsBacon is the winner!

11/12/2012 at 17:57

OMG, your pictures are amazing. Im loving the South park and Steve going to Paris ones, your really talented

That was so lucky that they removed your appendix and found it. You probably know far more than me about that kind of tumour. Due to them being quite rare I would need to read up on them. My brain can only take so much, the rest is filled up with blondness and running!

Ive just noticed they have christmas faces now aswell!

I tend to raise money for a few charities and dont have a specific one. Ive raised alot for Marie Curie with collection tins, name the bear, abseil down hallamshire hospital, zip slide and absail at bramall lane etc. I did my first 10 k for macmillan. I did a sky dive for cystic fibrosis after working with someone with the condition, I did my first half for BHF (as my husband department at work was trying to raise money for a new echo machine) and then I did London for help the hospices. I also try and buy things from charity magazines eg christmas cards and decorations, calendars etc and their raffle tickets. Ive just bought some tickets to go on a steam train (to raise money for York against cancer) for me, my OH and both my parents. Its supposed to have been used in Harry Potter, I cant wait!

Sarah it will take you to gothland station that was the harry potter station and home of Heartbeat!

Hey tigger its on the 30th of December so im hoping and prayer that the weather holds out!

11/12/2012 at 19:00

Wow, thanks Sarah  Yeah, the South Park one was fun to do - took a while though! lol

I know - so, so lucky! From what they told me, it is usually symptomless and you only know about it once it has start causing major probs... Haha well you can't be expected to remember everything!! It just amazes me how much you have to know to do your job. (I can't find the christmas smilies!)

You've done an amazing amount for charity! I'm the same in that I don't have one specific charity - I've raised money for GOSH, Cancer Research UK (obviously!), Havens Hospices...

Bramall Lane as in Sheffield United? 

Train ride sounds great - enjoy!
