Just a quick one to mark a couple of wonderful women who need a big hurrah from the blogosphere.
Lovely Laura. I work with this lady and she rocks. She's smart and funny and she's in a band. She has that kind of sense of style that allows her to wear quirky and vintage and look amazing. I'd just look a jumble sale reject. However she's got leukaemia. She writes about it in her blog. Today she's talking about Mother's Day and her dream of being a mum. It's easy to take our little darlings for granted, but how would it be if, we couldn't have had them in the first place?
Super sister. My sister has just bought half a pharmacy - a huge undertaking for anyone, let alone someone with a year-old baby. It's an amazing opportunity and she'd kick herself if she missed it. I'm excited for her, but cheering her on through the hard work. Go sister - you rock too. Oh, by the way, if you're in or near Edinburgh the Barnton Pharmacy is the very, very best place to get your drugs... and anything else.
Kathryn Bigelow. So she won a bunch of Oscars for her movies. I'm delighted for her, really chuffed. What I'm most pleased about is her comment that the "modifier should be moot". What she meant was that she is chuffed to have made the best film of the year and it's not really got anything to do with her gender. That attitude is going to rock the boys' club.
