SO today is Daffodil Day here, the annual fundraiser for the Cancer Society.
When I only had one or two kids
I used to help with the fundraising efforts on this day, selling daffodil brooches for a donation..
And before that I used to deliver yellow bunches of daffodils to businesses and shops (for the Cancer Society)..
Now we just dress in yellow,
buy a daff each from the street sellers
and the kids go to school in yellow, with their gold coins to donate.
|And I think about those struggling and lost|
and I just cuddle my healthy babies and think about how lucky and healthy we are.
|And how much I miss my Mum..|
The Frock part!
Last year I found that I actually, surprisingly didn't have any yellow clothes!
I made it a bit of an op shopping mission to find some yellow by the last Friday of August this year...
|I now have a few options!|
Today I wore:
* a very yellow towelling dress (70s/80s)
* a yellow two-piece negligee set
* yellow laced-sneakers - they have yellow flowers on the side. (bought in the Naki)
|I didn't wear the negligee to playgroup.|
I might one day.
|Strangely, as we walked to playgroup this morning we saw a very yellow truck and an even yellower rubbish truck. (not seen a yellow one before) Iris was pretty excited about that!|
Yellow dress from Gabrielle.
|There is hope|
and there is joy.
But cancer sux.
