Pretty Feet and a Pain in the Arse

Pretty Feet Pop Toe is a blogger based in London (I think) and, as I think I’ve written before today, she has a pretty sharp wit. Her humour is cutting and scathing but – for as long as you are not on the end of it – incredibly funny. I’ve come close to being one of those subject to her comments but she was very gracious to me when I pointed this out in the comments section and made many excuses for me. She never attacks personally but she writes so powerfully you have little choice but to think ‘Oh no – I’m one of these people she’s writing about.‘ You feel yourself slink into your chair as you read.

In this post below it is her sister who is on the receiving end. Pretty Feet‘s sister is, in her own words, a “pain in the arse”. The reason?

She has breast cancer.

Now you might think this is something not to make light of and not something to be horrible to your sister about, but you have to read PFPT’s post to understand her reasoning. I won’t tell you here. I hope, instead, I’ve whetted your appetite to go read it for yourself. Here is the link:

The End of Bad Hair Days

Now, considering this part of my little series on a handful of charities, you may have missed the connection if you didn’t notice the link right at the bottom of PFPT‘s post. Here it is again:

Little Princess Trust

Again, just in case you haven’t yet clicked on the link to Pretty Feet‘s blog and read the article, I won’t say any more about what this charity does. Go look at the site for yourself and become aware (as the mystics might say).

Feel free to reblog, share, tweet or in some other way share this information and let others know a bit about the work of the Trust, about Pretty Feet herself and, of course, about her pain-in-the-arse sister.
