Dry July FNSI sign ups open now

Dry July asks people to give up alcohol for the month of July and raise funds for cancer patients and their families and carers here in Australia.  

By donating, we raise money for people affected by cancer. Seeing as the odds are, we're all touched by cancer in some way, whether it be a friend, family member or ourselves, I thought it would be a nice idea to join in with our FNSI 'crew'.  It's not necessary, but if you'd like, pop over HERE and make a donation.  You can see where all the funds raised go to on THIS PAGE, but basically it all goes back to the patients and their families to make life a little better during treatment. 
Having watched a few friends go through treatment and having seen what hardships they go through, I'll certainly be popping over to see if I can help in any small way I can.  

I must apologise for not having the sign ups online yesterday......the kids had come over to do a load of washing #goodoldmumcomestotherescueagain and do their taxes and have dinner and watch the first episode of season 7's Game of Thrones!

It was late before they left hence the Tuesday post!  (And yes, it was a great start to the season, wasn't it?)

But here we go.....sign ups are below.  If you've never joined in before, it's nothing spooky or scary.....just link your blog up with Mr Linky below by adding your blog url (eg.  http//  and let others know you're joining in so that they can join in the fun too.  A dedicated night to doing what you love best, in the comfort of your own home knowing all your friends are doing just the same with you in their homes....a virtual stitch-in!  For more info, you can click on the FNSI tab at the top of the blog to read more.

Off to take dad for our Dad/DIL date to Claredale Pastures!
