Savvy Blogmas!

Day 5
So, we are starting or certainly planning to indulge ourselves and  are probably already overeating and over drinking! Today is all about sparing a thought  for those far less fortunate than ourselves. Outside of our comfortable bubble is another world, a bleak world where people are frightened, hungry and lonely.Why not make today the day you do something for  them.......

You could;
* pop to your local food bank, homeless or women's shelter and drop in something nice for them to enjoy this Christmas? If you are taking food make sure its non perishable and in date.
* make comfort packs up which include wet wipes, new underwear, comb, dry shampoo, lip balm, sanitary protection...... Whatever you can manage will be gratefully received.
* If you are having a clear out before Christmas you could take coats etc. to a local shelter. 
* reserve a place for a homeless single person at Crisis.

I have several links for you today to make the job easier!
Womens Aid - includes directories and much more
Food Bank Help - run by the Trussell Trust. Great easy to use website
Make a comfort pack - how to make comfort packs 
Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal - a wonderful organisation helping children

Crisis at Christmas - a fantastic organisation for single homeless people

Christmas is about love and giving. Whether people donate for selfless or altruistic reasons, the recipients will be incredibly grateful.

Enjoy your day to the full,

Guest Blogger Kaz Molloy writes about the great “womb cancer scandal” for Savvy ‘n’ Sassy readers today. Her message is powerful, and a must read for all women, young and older alike. Her words are from the heart. She has survived womb cancer but it has left a profound effect on her life. Please read and please, please share. It is easy to hide and not look at articles like this because we get scared. There is no need to be scared. Knowledge is a life saver. Who wouldn't want to know about the most common but sadly under discussed symptoms  of womb cancer?
I was diagnosed with womb cancer at the end of Dec 2009, aged 46. I had never heard of it and knew nothing about it. I didn’t know that it was the most common gynaecological cancer and that it can affect women of all ages.
After my treatment ended I decided to do something about the lack of support out there for women who had been diagnosed with womb cancer and also about the lack of awareness there was about this cancer.
So in Apr…

My Top 5 Cosy Reads for January! Check out my latest suggestions....

January is the perfect time to sit by the fire and enjoy a good book!

I know it's a bit late but...….Happy New Year everyone. I always find January cold and grey and a bit of a let down after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas. One way I love to cheer myself up is to grab a hot drink and snuggle on the sofa with a good book. I get totally involved with the characters, imagine the settings and for a while I'm enjoying a different reality! With the weather we are being threatened with in the next week or so it seems like a pretty good way to spend my time!
