On Friday I donated blood for the first time. I was petrified – I have this uncontrollable fear of needles.  I almost bolted when I confessed this to the sister and her reply to me was “Yes, the needle is quite bad”  I mean really!!!  Don’t say that to me when you are closing in upon my arm with said needle!


Anyway, I persevered and here is the scar to proof it.

It really is such a good cause.  Head on over to their website (http://www.blood.org.za) and find your nearest place to donate.
