|I love the simple pleasures in life like grass under my feet|
On a seriously note - we all love life, our family our friends, summer and being healthy but did you know 1 in 4 people will need a blood transfusions in their lifetime and with only 4% of the British population being blood donors thats a real scary thought. In theory someone in your family will be affected and need a transfusion and in my personal experience that statistic appears to be true as my mother has had two during both her c-sections as well as two cousins, my aunt and my grandmother and I really wonder what the outcome would of been without those amazing people who give up just a little bit of there time to donate and potential save numerous lives.

Like I said my mother had transfusions twice and it's still something that happens a lot in child birth and for those who don't know it was World Blood Donation Day earlier this month (14th June) and I really want to take my hat off to all those that are involved. Most people don't donate because of things like a fear of needles, fainting etc, some people like me can't for medical reasons but its something we should all really consider doing. I recently took part in a survey which they have made into an infographic which has some pretty eye opening facts, check it out....
