Well I finally gave blood to day, I was terrified, but I have to say once the needle was it it was a doddle! I have even booked to go again in December.The staff were quite lovely and they took a picture of me to prove I really did do it. They were all quite interested in my year of challenges, and laughed alot when they heard about the ballgown breakfast. I felt very proud of myself, until the Lady next to me while we were having our tea and buscuits said it was her 44th donation, then I thought prehaps my little donation wasn't all that impressive, it's going to be a long time before I get to no 44!
