Happy St Andrews Day.

Rexy helped with the cooking today! We made lemon curd (recipe here) and I have to say that it is the best lemon curd ever made!

Today’s blip is dedicated to my husband’s late wife who also loved cooking and his brother who died from bone cancer.

Check out information about bone cancer or www.nhsinform.co.uk (UK) or contact your own GP who will have leaflets and more information..

Rexy is travelling the globe to raise awareness and here’s how the whole thing works….

“T. rex is travelling the globe promoting cancer awareness. One person keeps the T-Rex for a week and take photos portraying the T-Rex however she/he feels like, be creative, have fun. Dedicate the photos to whoever you feel like, post them here and in the social media of your choice, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, just make sure tag your photos #t_rex_planet_tour_cancer_awareness.

When the person finishes with the 7th or more photos she/he will send the T-Rex to another person in any place on the planet, and that other person will send to another one and so on…”

Check out the fb page.

Why not take a look at the following link …. spotting symptoms early can make a difference to survival rates.

Rexy insisted on coming to Ayr today to help me with the shopping. Incidentally, if you ever need to take a dinosaur shopping choose one with longer arms; he struggled carrying the bags to the car!

We stopped off at the Robert Burns Centre on the way back to take his photo with a wee mousy. Yes, it really is this big!

We then stopped off in Danure. It was so windy we had to hold onto the fence.

Then onto electric brae…

We played a quick round on the way home at Turnberry Golf Course. Only kidding, Rexy can’t play golf. He can’t find shoes to fit!

Today’s blip is dedicated to my uncle and his wife who both lost their battle with lung cancer a few years ago but not before burying their only son, lost to the same disease. No parent should have to bury their child.

Check out information about lung cancer or cancer in general or contact your own GP who will have leaflets and more information..

Rexy visited the Mull of Galloway today; Scotland’s most southerly point:

Then onto Portpatrick for lunch and more photos:

Rexy then asked to go to Belfast but when I said we didn’t have time, he ate the ferry:

Today’s post is dedicated to a friends’s late wife who sadly passed away fifteen years ago after a long and painful battle with bowel cancer. Today, 9 out of 10 people beat bowel cancer when it’s found early.

Check out the information at www.bowelscreeningtest.org (Scotland) or www.nhsinform.co.uk (UK) or contact your own GP who will have leaflets and more information.

It was sad to return home today to hear that Lewis Collins has died after a five year battle with cancer. The Professionals was a favourite TV programme of mine for many years. My thoughts are with his family.

T. Rex terrorises SWScotland….!

Well, we have a Jurassic coastline so perhaps it could have happened! Rexy also told me that Ailsa Craig (in the background) is the plug of an ancient volcano that once dwarfed Everest if locals are to be believed.

Today’s post is dedicated to my cousin’s late wife who passed away following bone cancer leaving three young children.
