|British Heart Foundation Wear it Red day|
February 5th ♥
Today in much of the world it is a national wear red day today. Why? To highlight the big killer that is heart disease. Wear red day is today, organised by the British Heart foundation ( UK ) and I am going to be wearing red.
Many die of this every year and look at the photo, 12 babies in the UK alone are born with heart defeats every day and 400 people a day die from it! That's a huge number.
All over the world heart disease is a problem and many countries are wearing red today. In America it is in its 13th year. ( USA and Canada ) And I notice Australia are also involved but their wear it red day is a tad later on Feb 26th, so you have some time to get organised. ( Australia )
Had a search through my wardrobe and decided my red poncho would not be enough and it needed sprucing up. I often wear red so nobody would think it 'different', but they might now don't you think?
|Hoping people will now ask |
me why I am wearing all these hearts
Keeping on the theme of red and perhaps not quite so healthy after writing about heart disease but I could not resist sharing these cookies. I cannot vouch for there taste as have not yet tried them and I suspect they could be a bit of a faff to make, but Oh my goodness they look divine. My daughter and I are going to give them a try, hopefully this week end... Heart cookies
|Perfect for Valentines, or other shapes |
at different times of the year perhaps.

|The carrots are perfection, such fun|
As for me I have so many thoughts running through my head that I am not productive at all. I keep thinking ooh I'll try that and then begin but get distracted by something else. This really is no good and I am off after posting this to have a very stern talking to myself to buck my ideas up. Do you ever suffer from this problem? The one thing that is constant and that I do keep returning to
