001: First things first... IT'S DECEMBER! Santa will be delivering his goodies in twenty three days! Hopefully you're on the nice list, like me! I started Christmas shopping this weekend and I'm about half done! Not bad!

002: I suppose I had better mention Breaking Dawn and my own personal thoughts on it as everyone else has. I actually really enjoyed it! I wasn't too sure what to expect as I've heard mixed reviews from people about it. I don't want to mention too much incase I spoil it for anyone who's not yet watched it, but the big twist towards the end is really clever!

003: I finally got round to photographing my final shoot with my friend Jack this week. I'm still in the process of editing and uploading but I will eventually get round to blogging them. I really like them! The same day after the shoot, we went to the pub for lunch, giggles and a game of darts (I tragically lost). It was lovely catching up with my dear friend Nicole (Jack's girlfriend). We ordered so much cheesy food!

004: My Nanny got her hospital results on Wednesday. I haven't mentioned at all what is wrong with her as nobody was 100% sure, but our fears have become a reality. She indeed has breast cancer. Her operation is FIVE days before Christmas which is poo but I just want her to get better. Fortunately, it's been found in its early days so is hopefully treatable. She will only need the operation and radio-therapy every day for FIVE weeks afterwards but most probably not chemotherapy... unless it's spread elsewhere. We will find this out next week. This is a possible fact however, as she has developed a lump on her sternerm bone which may be a type of secondary cancer; lung cancer to be exact. Everybody has been SO kind. Thank you.

005: I received a lovely parcel from Cybercandy the other day containing some goodies to bake a cake with. Me and Andrew spent two days baking stuff. I will be posting about both things soon; one of which totally failed haha. 

Have you beat breast cancer? Know someone who has or is currently battling it? I'd love to hear from you. Please e-mail me.
